About the event
"Cria cuervos y te sacarán los ojos" - "Breed crows and they’ll rip your eyes out"
The 20th century dawned, and Latin American artists and writers grappled with a common question: What does it mean to be Mexican, Brazilian, Argentinean, Uruguayan, or a Latin American artist? Their answers, influenced by the thought-provoking writings of José Enrique Rodó, sparked a journey into the realms of identity. This exploration ultimately led to the construction of an invisible cultural wall, setting them apart from the United States and even its democratic system.
Join us in "How Art Led to Fascism" as we unravel the intricate connection between artistic identity quests and the rise of dictatorial regimes in the 1930s.
