RED DE CONCEPTUALISMOS DEL SUR (Web of Southern Conceptualism)

The Web of Southern Conceptualism is an international platform for work, thought and collective ideology.  This web was founded at the end of 2007 by a group of researchers concerned with the need to intervene politically in the neutralized critical processes of  the conceptual practices that took place in Latin America at the beginning of the 1960s.  Today, this web ties together around 40 active participants dispersed throughout Latin America and Spain.

The organizing and decision-making structures of the Web are constituted by its participating work groups and their mutual transversal interaction.  A participating work group is a collective with concrete objectives proclaimed, defined and recognized within the Web.

The collective work of the Web of Southern Conceptualism aims to:

Generate research about archival politics as well as experiments that reactivate the experiential memory of conceptual practices that took place in Latin America during the Sixties and Seventies.

Promote a series of ethical proposals (different from those that are ruled by the market) as well as alternative political frameworks that would impact the decision-making and realization of those public, cultural, international policies in relationship to the new ways in which Latin America is being spoiled materially, economically, artistically and symbolically.

Create an environment for exchange, discussion and political intervention of the research developed by the members of the Web as well as to complement or conflict synergies with the academia and other established institutions.
