Art as Political Resistance: The Argentine Autonomous Project

Latin American Studies and Spanish and Hispanic Studies present “Art as Political Resistance: The Argentine Autonomous Project” at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16, in the Geneva Room. The project is a resistance movement consisting of activists, students, puppeteers, and workers who speak out to educate people about the impact of the current economic crisis in Argentina. “Art as Political Resistance: The Argentine Autonomous Project” is a workshop and presentation by Graciela Monteagudo on the piqueteros (the unemployed workers movement); the asambleas (horizontally organized neighborhood meetings); the trueque (barter network used by 7 million people); and the role of women in these social movements.
