A talk in two parts focusing on certain conceptual and theoretical considerations in response to reading design histories of Latin America. Through the lenses of Latin American philosophers, critical theorists, and writers, we will make observations on local art, design, identity, and the role of the creative imagination in the production of new forms. We will consider the relationships between pre-modern forms, modern materials, and visual culture – and what a sustained engagement with the past can provide for us in the present.

This class is available to purchase individually, or at a discounted rate when the course pass is purchased.
