Abstract / Description of output

[Bilingual edition] The book compiles ten essays by Nicaraguan artist, writer and editor Raúl Quintanilla Armijo written between 1985 and 2002. Quintanilla has been one of the most active critical voices in Nicaragua and Central America since the 1980s. This book, published in bilingual format (Spanish and English), seeks to underline the importance of its hybrid production that has shifted between artistic production, publishing publications and the generation of independent spaces. In the midst of all that, his writing has remained his favorite critical vehicle: an insolent, corrosive writing that makes no concessions, which has managed to disturb the dream of artists, writers, politicians and cultural managers of the established art circuit.
