Guernica in Munich

April 26 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A lecture by ANDREA GIUNTA, Tinker Professor at the Institute of Latin American Studies at Columbia University (Spring 2017)
and a conversation with
ANDREAS HUYSSEN, Villard Professor of German and Comparative Literature at Columbia University.
5:00 PM: Room 612 Schermerhorn Hall
7:00 PM: Schermerhorn Lounge, 8th Floor
In 1955, an anthological exhibition by Pablo Picasso was presented at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, which included Guernica, a painting linked to the German intervention in the Spanish Civil War. The Haus der Kunst had been built by orders of Hitler as the House of the German Culture. In this venue, the painting, the history of Picasso, the postwar and the Cold War entered an intense collision. To what extent can images repair or ignite history? In this lecture Professor Andrea Giunta will present the advances of her research on this exhibition and test some answers to a question that pursues the history of all the images, but even more so, a work that condenses to the violence of twentieth century.

An Archaeology of the Political: Regimes of Power from the Seventeenth Century to the Present

May 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Institute of Latin American Studies invites you to its talk titled An Archaeology of the Political: Regimes of Power from the Seventeenth Century to the Present about the book with the same title, authored by Elías José Palti .
The discussion will include Elías José Palti, Federico Finchelstein, Martin Burke and Claudio Lomnitz, Director of the Center for Mexican Studies at Columbia University.
In the past few decades, much political-philosophical reflection has been dedicated to the realm of “the political.” Many of the key figures in contemporary political theory—Jacques Rancière, Alain Badiou, Reinhart Koselleck, Giorgio Agamben, Ernesto Laclau, and Slavoj Žižek, among others—have dedicated themselves to explaining power relations, but in many cases they take the concept of the political for granted, as if it were a given, an eternal essence.
In An Archaeology of the Political, Elías José Paltiargues that the dimension of reality known as the political is not a natural, transhistorical entity. Instead, he claims that the horizon of the political arose in the context of a series of changes that affirmed the power of absolute monarchies in seventeenth-century Europe and was successively reconfigured from this period up to the present. Palti traces this series of redefinitions accompanying alterations in regimes of power, thus describing a genealogy of the concept of the political. Perhaps most important, An Archaeology of the Political brings to theoretical discussions a sound historical perspective, illuminating the complex influences of both theology and secularization on our understanding of the political in the contemporary world.
