Yásnaya Elena Aguilar, Dolores Reyes, Cristina Rivera Garza and Joseph Zárate in conversation with Amanda de la Garza (presented by Felipe Restrepo Pombo)

Retellings

Querétaro 2022 , 
Historical narratives about Latin America have usually arisen out of the colonial imagination. The Volver a contar: Historias latinoamericanas en el Museo Británico project, a collaboration between the Hay Festival and the Santo Domingo Centre of Excellence for Latin American Research (SDCELAR) at the British Museum, seeks to problematize and redirect these narratives, creating new discourses through the interpretations of objects in the museum’s Americas collection by artists, writers and thinkers from the region. This is a very necessary re-reading of our past in order to build a more plural and inclusive future. With Yásnaya Elena Aguilar (Mexico), Dolores Reyes (Argentina), Cristina Rivera Garza (Mexico) and Joseph Zárate (Peru), in conversation with Amanda de la Garza. With a presentation by Felipe Restrepo Pombo.
