Breaking the Frames of the Past

Speaker: Daniella Wurst, Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures

Daniella Wurst's research traces the relationship between memory (both individual and collective), temporality, and aesthetic interventions in Latin American countries with a history of political and state violence—specifically Chile, Argentina, and Peru. Using a comparative framework, she puts into dialogue how cultural memory representations can reveal a host of economic, cultural, and political tensions in the present.
