Conversaciones... con FRANÇOISE CHOAY

Conversaciones... con FRANÇOISE CHOAY | Número 10

El último número de Conversaciones... reproduce, con traducciones al español, la introducción del libro de Choay de 2009 Le Patrimoine en questions. Anthologie pour un combat y un capítulo de su obra de 2011 La Terre qui meurt, donde analiza los conceptos de "monumento" y "monumento histórico" y su evolución. Con ello, Choay hace un llamamiento contra la estandarización global y el uso genérico del término "patrimonio", al tiempo que subraya la importancia de la formación de arquitectos y urbanistas. A través de los escritos de Choay, seis estimados autores aplican sus diversas perspectivas geográficas para examinar los retos impuestos por un mundo globalizado y las respuestas que son necesarias para mantener el carácter de nuestras ciudades.

Contemporary Art Collections in Latin America and the Caribbean – Regional Survey 2021

Latin America and the Caribbean are home to a vibrant heritage that includes World Heritage sites, diverse and prominent contemporary cultural expressions, ancient cultures and subcultures, strong links to the environment, and rich indigenous knowledge reserves. ICCROM’s regional programme for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) aims to promote the integrated and sustainable management of this heritage, paying particular attention to major region-specific issues - one of which is contemporary heritage. This survey was created to assess the needs and opportunities concerning the conservation and management of contemporary art collections in the LAC region. Its results will be used to underpin the development of effective and integrated capacity-building initiatives on this topic at the regional level.
