La mancha y el ejemplo. Pedro Figari y la óptica de la modernidad

Luca Salvi


This paper aims to reconsider the eccentric intellectual – visual, literary and philosophical – production of the Uruguayan Pedro Figari in light of the ideological background that animates it and founds this particular Figarian project: to product universally shared forms which contribute to the affirmation of a unique idea of Latin-American modernity. A project in which, in the intersection of figurative stylization, rhetoric of example and utopian narrative, modernity still results linked to a subalternity strictly related to a colonial heritage.
