In Argentina, Colombia, and Peru, there has been an out-pouring of popular-performative activities that have asked citizens to pose questions about the social order and about the memories of recent atrocities. Cala Buendia looks at ways in which cultural producers adapted or developed strategies as resources for social actors to use for change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a timely and far-reaching comparative study of creative responses to economic and political crises in Colombia, Peru and Argentina. Cala Buendia's bold and nuanced interpretation demonstrates the surprising goals achieved by spontaneous, unconventional cultural initiatives that emerge from both grass-roots and governmental levels. Culture is truly the protagonist of this story where the political agency of visual art, performance, and literature provides effective tactics in the contemporary Latin American public sphere." - Marcy Schwartz, Rutgers University, USA

"This book is a remarkable achievement. At once a cultural history of citizenship and a political analysis of the role of cultural producers, Felipe Cala Buendia crosses disciplines and genres to offer us a unique and very special study of the role of artists, writers, publishers and performers in the making of modern democracy. It is theoretically sophisticated and a great read." - Jeremy Adelman, Princeton University, USA
