Author: Carlos Granés.
Conversation this afternoon at 7pm in the Simón Bolívar and José Martí Rooms of Casa América with Carlos Granés about the publication of his work Delirio americano. Una historia cultural y política de América Latina (American Delirium. A cultural and political history of Latin America), an event framed within the cycle Describo que escribo.
Carlos Granés, one of today’s most solid and original thinkers, recomposes with a great narrative pulse the immense, intricate and exuberant puzzle of the long 20th century in Latin America. For the first time, readers are able to trace in a single narrative the stages, forces and events of a history always told in a fragmentary way and deeply marked by the complex relations between culture and politics. The essay draws surprising connections, shows revealing contradictions and portrays figures such as José Martí, César Vallejo, Nahui Olín, Juan Domingo Perón, García Márquez, Doris Salcedo or Caetano Veloso…
With the participation of Carlos Granés, author of the work; José Andrés Rojo, editor-in-chief of Opinion in the newspaper El País, and Áurea Moltó, director of the magazine Política Exterior. Free admission.
