Brújula’s sixth issue, devoted to the construction of the imaginary in artistic discourses in Latin America, seeks to encourage a dialogue between diverse manifestations of aesthetic thought and creation. Essays might explore analytical, historical and/or interpretive approaches. Proposals with an interdisciplinary focus in literature, dance, music, visual arts, theater, cinema, architecture, new technologies, etc., are welcome; we are interested in works that respond to contemporary production, as well as those that encompass other historical periods. Potential topics for investigation include:
Intentionality(ies): author, work, audience
Objectivities and subjectivities in the arts
Spaces and times: locality, globalization and the past, present and future
Intersections of artistic discourses
The “new” arts: technology and media
Collectivity, collaboration and community in artistic creation
Creative processes and the mind
Politics, the State and art
