Abstract

Abstract:

This essay nuances the legibility of Joaquín Torres-García's Inverted Map of South America as the supposed symbol of Latin America's cultural independence. Rather than a transparent "illustration," I argue that the Inverted Map traces an ambiguous routing of mestizaje constantly disavowed in the artist's discourse while animating his visual praxis.
