This book seeks to configure the ways in which the interdisciplinary, the eclectic and the combinatory have served a strategic purpose in the development of a self-aware and identity-conscious visual discourse in Mexico, from the formative nineteenth century to the post-national 1990s. The construction and interrogation of identities in reproductive media provides the unifying analytical interest ranging over observational writing, illustrated periodicals, graphic art, photography and film. Chapters discuss nation-building imagery and exhibitionary paradigms; cultural nationalism and photographic ethnicity; the interplay of graphic arts and film in the construction of originary identities; disabused perspectives on modernization and urbanism in film and photography; women photographers and the indigenous subject; the questioning of objective identities and the play of reflexive tropes in modernist and 1990s photography; the deconstruction of the Mexican archive in post-national photography and multimedia art; and archaeological models and materials and the dismantling of cultural nationalism in visual culture.
Erica Segre has published and lectured extensively on Mexican visual culture and is Newton Trust Lecturer in Hispanic Studies in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge, Fellow of Trinity College and Affiliated Lecturer at the Centre of Latin American Studies.
