Hoffmann and de la Barra's project draws attention not only to the geographic territories of Latin America itself, but also to its relation within the wider scope of the Americas, and its position in a global artistic context. This book offers a framework for critical insight into artworks dealing with crucial social, industrial, or ecological concerns, and also for interrogating the very categories and terminologies used to construct the notion of Latin America.
This catalogue includes a conversation between Stefan Benchoam, Fernanda Brenner, Eduardo Carrera, Camila Marambio, and Marina Reyes Franco (moderated by Heidi Rabben), a glossary, a reflective essay by Hoffmann "after the fact," and images from the exhibition.
