Program Description:
In 1938 the painter Ignacio Gómez Jaramillo, influenced by Mexican muralism, made two murals in the National Capitol of Bogotá. Two historical events of the nineteenth century past: the Insurrection of the Comuneros and the Liberation of the Slaves. Critics from the press were quick to call the works of Gómez Jaramillo "monstrous" and the commoners and slaves represented there as "indecent puppets." Here, the insults of the press were directed both at the images of social actors hitherto invisible locally, and at the new style of painting. This section exemplifies the problem that the Art and Diversity course proposes to address: art as a space and a means of making diversity visible. Light observation easily leads us to the creation of otherness through stereotypes and prejudices, either from a daily scene, such as a painting or sculpture. It is precisely this CBU that will deal with these two sides of the coin. On the one hand, the artistic creation itself, its origin, its purpose within the construction of otherness and, at the same time, it seeks that the student reflects on images and works from different periods and geographical contexts that confront us with constructions of alterities.
