Conference on the publication of RUPTURA journal (1982)

In 1982, CADA published the journal RUPTURA, printing 200 copies. This video footage shows a discussion around the journal in a meeting of artists.In part 1, the discussion centers on the inclusion in the journal of an interview with visual artist Ernesto Muñoz. The inclusion of this interview generated a heated polemic because this artist was rejected by the liberal/leftist political milieu in which CADA participated. The interview was considered a wrong move. CADA members Raúl Zurita and Diamela Eltit defend and explain CADA's decision to publish the interview.In part 2, they discuss the homage that the journal decided to pay to Colectivo Mural Brigada Ramona Parra, which devoted itself to the production of murals. They also discuss the status of CADA's artistic practice, which was frequently not considered as 'artistic'. Finally, they talk about the relationship of art and politics in the work of both CADA and Ramona Parra.
