Stricken bodies, mutant bodies: Losing the human form evokes an image of the 1980s in Latin America that draws a counterpoint between the devastating effects of violence on bodies, and the radical experiments of freedom and transformation that challenged the repressive order. Between horror and festivity, the selected materials show not only the atrocious consequences of countless disappearances and massacres occurring under the dictatorial regimes, states of siege and internal wars, but also the collective urges to create new ways of life, in continual revolution.
