"Honesty with the real"

Traducción de mi artículo "La honestidad con lo real" en el Journal of Aesthetics & Culture (vol. 4, 2012)

This article explores the re-politization of art that is taking place nowadays, with the aim to go beyond the duality representation/transformation as the two activities of political art. It proposes the concept of ‘‘honesty with the real’’, as a way to think about art as a form of treatment. How do we handle reality and deal with reality? This question leads us to think about affect as a form of violence and to propose a new sense of engagement and intervention.
