In this course, students will explore the political roles of art in Latin America in a selection of works ranging from the 7th to the 21st century. How can we conceive of aesthetics as politics in Latin America under a variety of historical regimes, including the Maya, Aztecs, Spanish colonial rule, revolutionary governments, military dictatorships, and the contemporary neo-liberal state? This course also investigates as possible political interventions, visual and performative works traditionally not classified as "political art," including abstract art, performance, theater, installation, new media, and site-specific work.
