El humor reprimido. Tiras y viñetas del diario Clarín durante los años de represión y censura (Argentina, 1974 – 1982)

Florencia Levín


In 1976 a coup d'etat headed by Jorge Rafael Videla dismissed the government of Isabel M. de Perón (widow of the famous Argentinean political leader). From then on, state terrorism spread terror and made thousands of people disappear. This article explores, through the study of graphic humour in the Clarín (the most influential newspaper in the country), the social attitudes of humourists regarding the military regime (1976-1983) and discusses the consensus-resistance concepts with which cultural spaces in dictatorships are usually interpreted. The analysis includes de articulation of humour discourses with the official voice of the newspaper as expressed in its editorial line.
