Abstract

Abstract:

This article about the video installation Iconomía brings focus to the relationship between television images of Colombia's historic violence, and the perpetrators of that violence. In particular, it delves into the ideological use of violent images and the role the media and television play in the control of those images. The article argues that artist José Alejandro Restrepo's images open an inquiry into media images of the Colombian armed conflict as ideological instruments, essentially used as symbols of representation that conceal or arbitrarily erase aspects of what must be understood about Colombia's past.
