Age of discrepancies

Olivier Debroise, Cuauhtémoc Medina
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, 2014 - 501 páginas
This comprehensive, 470-page survey of artistic experimentation in late twentieth-century Mexico, first published in 2007, assesses fields as diverse as painting, photography, poster design, installation, performance, experimental theater, Super-8 film, video, music and poetry. It also reconstructs ephemeral works (with the support of the artists). The three tumultuous decades between 1968 and 1997 saw the end of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) in a violent final phase that began with the 1968 Tlatelolco massacre--which brought a brutal end to the student movement of 1968--and ended with the crises that followed the 1994 Zapatista uprising in Chiapas. The Age of Discrepancies is the first visual history to cover this exciting period, and to propose a genealogy for the work that emerged from it, which is coming under increased scholarly scrutiny.
