ROSSANO PECORARO (Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro): Identity and Revolt Aesthetics (and Politics) in Twentieth Century Latin American Philosophy
Starting from an aesthetic-political perspective, my aim is to highlight the tension between the search for an “authentically” Latin American identity and the line of conduct to be adopted with regard to the European colonialism.
The analysis is articulated into two moments. The first will outline the central points of the contemporary debate on the existence of a Latin American Philosophy (Juan Bautista Alberdi, Augusto Salazar Bondy, Leopoldo Zea). In the second, some of the contemporary reflections on Latin American Art and Aesthetics will be clarified (Modernism; Avant-garde and Indigenism; Muralism; Pop Art).
ROSSANO PECORARO is full professor at the "Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro" (UNIRIO), director of the " Laboratory of Political and Moral Philosophy to Gerardo Marotta" and director of "Quadranti – Rivista Internazionale di Filosofia Contemporanea". His works deal mostly with the topics of political philosophy, philosophy of technology, ethics, aesthetics, philosophy of history.
L'iniziativa si svolge nell´ambito dell'Accordo di Cooperazione tra l´Università di Torino (UNITO) e l'Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO)
