SITAC VII South, south, south, south...
From the space of symbolic ambiguity by working from and in a country like Mexico, which represents one of the modalities of the “northern south” – this symposium poses a “return to the South” that can not be activated from the assurances of a “aesthetics of the resistance”. It is no longer possible to see the South as a region of refuge, where intellectuals and artists seeking fully heterogeneous societies and forces. We can, however, activate it as a territory of tasks and questions that should arise once the battles for inclusion and reformulation of schemes center and periphery, indispensable as they were, are no longer radical imperatives but reforms more or less fulfilled in the cultural system.
