Example text

The topic is less than secondary, it was tertiary for all the different governments we had here. I have not seen even a minimal effort in developing an interest in these cultures, and finding a way to promote research on this topic. To the contrary, here one always looked to Europe, or in recent years, to the United States—regarding culture, mainly to Europe. In my primary and secondary school studies they only mentioned the Inca. We studied the Romans, the Egyptians, and everything about European culture—much more than we learned about the culture of our America (nuestra América).

Schneider, Appropriation as Practice © Arnd Schneider 2006 20 APPROPRIATION AS PRACTICE cross-cultural communication in a global world. Specifically, the discussion is of relevance to contemporary art practices that involve the appropriation of ideas, symbols, and artefacts from other cultures. In the Argentine context, which will occupy us in the following empirical chapters of this book, appropriation is a strategy of identity construction. Said otherwise, through the incorporation of new elements, inspired by indigenous cultures, artists change their own identity.

I first discuss definitions of appropriation, and then explore its role in relation to theories of culture change and globalization. I then advocate a new meaning of appropriation as hermeneutic practice, and finally discuss it in relation to globalization and hybridization in Latin America. This chapter advocates a reconceptualization of appropriation in order to provide a better understanding of global art practices. In the first instance, I suggest we have to consider the relation of appropriation to cultural change.
