Episode 138: Francisco Guevara of Arquetopia

Dec 05, 2019, 01:00 PM
On this occasion, Babelito interviews the director of Arquetopia in Mexico and Peru, a residency program that both him and FavyFav have attended. They discuss the Middle Eastern influences on Mexican food and Francisco explains the process of developing residency programs in sites such as Puebla, Oaxaca and Cuzco. They talk about the myth of the artist, the myth of art and the problems Arquetopia has had with residents who seek to live their Latin American fantasies through their cultural production. Find out more about why Babelito is so critical to the art of Frida Kahlo, the real meaning of micro-aggressions, visibility, the difference between white guilt and white absolution, and the ways that we can use critical theory for our own advantage.
