Speaker information

Marcelo Brodsky, Photographer

An open conversation with Argentinian photographer Marcelo Brodsky about the relation between the struggles for human rights and artistic practices in Latin America, considering the cases of enforced disappearances committed in Argentina during the last dictatorship and the most recent situation of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa, southwest Mexico, disappeared by police forces in September 2014.

Marcelo Brodsky will talk about the project Buena Memoria, that he articulated in response to the Argentinian context, and about Visual Action, a digital platform he recently launched to promote artistic actions that denounce and make visible human rights violations. This talk will offer the opportunity to learn about the problems of representation regarding these social problems and about artistic strategies to create awareness and solidarity.
