In the twentieth century, avant-garde artists from Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean created extraordinary and highly innovative paintings, sculptures, assemblages, mixed-media works, and installations. This innovative book presents more than 250 works by some seventy of these artists (including Gego, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Xul Solar, and Jose Clemente Orozco) and artists' groups, along with interpretive essays by leading authorities and newly translated manifestoes and other theoretical documents written by the artists. Together the images and texts showcase the astonishing artistic achievements of the Latin American avant-garde. The book focuses on two decisive periods: the return from Europe in the 1920s of Latin American avant-garde pioneers; and the expansion of avant-garde activities throughout Latin America after World War II as artists expressed their independence from developments in Europe and the United States. As the authors explain, during these periods Latin American art was fueled by the belief that artistic creations could present a form of utopia - an inversion of the original premise that drove the European avant-garde - and serve as a model for

Angola erlangte als einer der letzten afrikanischen Staaten 1975 seine Unabhängigkeit vom portugiesischen Kolonialreich. Die Dekolonisierung und Gründung der jungen Nation im südlichen Zentralafrika war das Ergebnis einer einzigartigen transatlantischen Kooperation, einer Süd-Süd-Verbindung zwischen Angola und Kuba. Kubas Regierung unterstützte die befreundete Unabhängigkeitsbewegung MPLA und förderte bis 1991 die angolanische Regierung nicht nur militärisch, sondern auch zivil. Christine Hatzky richtet mit ihrer Studie erstmals den Blick auf die zivile Kooperation und insbesondere auf die Zusammenarbeit im Bildungssektor. Deutlich wird, wie beide Regierungen über die Distanz des Atlantiks hinweg zusammenarbeiteten und dabei durchaus eigene Interessen über die Konfliktlage des Kalten Krieges zu stellen wussten. Neben der politischen und strukturellen Geschichte beleuchtet die Autorin insbesondere auch den Alltag der Bildungsarbeit, an der nicht weniger als 10.000 kubanische Lehrer und Pädagogen beteiligt waren.

Ein fesselndes Plädoyer für das WAGNIS DER LIEBE. Am Anfang ist jede Liebe leicht. Wie aber geht es mit ihr weiter? Wie gelingt es, zu zweit das Glück zu finden? In seinem neuen Roman durchleuchtet Alain de Botton gnadenlos, aber einfühlsam die Liebesgeschichte von Rabih und Kirsten. Die Wahl der Ikea-Gläser, das Kennenlernen der Schwiegereltern, die Frage, ob die Butter tatsächlich im Kühlschrank stehen soll - all das gibt Anlass für die größten Dramen. Und so wie de Botton mit seinem berühmten Scharfblick erzählt, erkennen wir jene Strukturen der Liebe, die uns allen gleichermaßen Glück und Leid bereiten.

Native Insurgencies And The Genocidal Impulse In The Americas

This book investigates three Indian revolts in the Americas: the 1680 uprising of the Pueblo Indians against the Spanish; the Great Rebellion in Bolivia, 1780--82; and the Caste War of Yucatan that began in 1849 and was not finally crushed until 1903. Nicholas A. Robins examines their causes, course, nature, leadership, and goals. He finds common features: they were revitalization movements that were both millenarian and exterminatory in their means and objectives; they sought to restore native rule and traditions to their societies; and they were movements born of despair and oppression that were sustained by the belief that they would witness the dawning of a new age. His work underscores the link that may be found, but is not inherent, between genocide, millennialism, and revitalization movements in Latin America during the colonial and early national periods.
