summary
Rosenberg explores Latin American artistic production concerned with the possibility of justice after the establishment, rise, and ebb of the narrative of human rights around the turn of the last century. Whereas various literary and artistic initiatives throughout modern Latin American history attempted to address and supplement the state's historical inability to represent and bring about justice, contemporary cultural production encounters a situation in which the state-centered terms and institutions that used to frame a concern with justice are revealed to be limited. Rosenberg proposes that the artistic production of the turn of the century engages in an active reformulation of the ideal of justice, in relation to which the language of rights defines both the horizon of the possible and the limit to the imaginable. Based on discussions of literature, film, and visual art, Rosenberg addresses a central dilemma of contemporary Latin American artistic production, which he locates at the point where the logic of the global market and the discourse of human rights intersect in the formation of social subjects.
