Most of the canonical histories and criticism of Latin American art depict a history of artistic production in which technology plays a minor or invisible role. This construction of history reinforces the assumption that experimentation, innovation and theorization in technological art are exclusive provinces of the developed world. How does the inclusion of technologically-engaged practices in the history of Latin American art challenge our understanding of this art? Has the dissemination of digital technologies contributed to preserve or to obscure cultural memory?  Has it contributed to the development of socially engaged practices? Can artists' engagements with technology stimulate the development of new historical and critical discourses about Latin American art? Diverse disciplinary and methodological approaches will be considered.
