Politic - Literature - Commitment: Latin American authors report

with: João Paulo Cuenca, Vivian Lavin, Dr. Oscar Guardiola, Cala Maliandi and Jaime Labastida

Socio-economic and political discussions in Latin American countries circle around questions of identity, (post)capitalist economic systems, social distortions and - repeatedly - around the cultural as well as the economic emacipation from the United States. Which influences, from postcolonial theories up to pop art and indigenous art forms, are beeing processed today? Which forms of „committed literature“ are chosen to be either continued or rejected?
