Abstract [es]

En este artículo no me propongo analizar rasgos concretos de la instalación audiovisual-multimedia Imagen de Caracas, sino tomarla como índice de algo posible o nuevo. Mi argumentación es que Imagen de Caracas puede interpretarse como una forma especulativa donde, por medio de la integración de formas plásticas y artísticas, la correspondencia entre arte y comunidad puede ser indicativa de una función emancipadora. Esta función no es aislada: el momento de su emergencia coincide con una serie de eventos artísticos tanto en Venezuela como en el resto de América Latina que persiguieron articulaciones entre lo estético y lo político. Enmarcado en este devenir, Imagen de Caracas se erige como espejo crítico de la ciudad de Caracas y su gente, y en esa reflexión de una ciudad que se mira a sí misma alojó, en su intento por mostrar desde adentro el afuera, el germen emancipatorio delos espacios y los espectadores.

Specular Caracas: emancipated spectatorsand spaces in the audiovisual installation Imagen de Caracas

In this article I want to go beyond the analysis of concrete features in the multimedia installation Imagen de Caracas. My aim is to take the installation as an index of something possible or new. My argument is that Imagen de Caracas can be interpreted as a speculative form in which, through the integration of plastic and artistic forms, the correspondence between art and community can be indicative of an emancipating function. This function is not isolated: the moment of its emergence coincides with a series of artistic events in both Venezuela and the rest of Latin America that pursue an articulation between aesthetics and politics. Framed in this context, Imagen de Caracas raises a critical mirror reflecting the city of Caracas and its people. In that reflection of a city that looks at itself, Imagen de Caracas attempts to show the emancipatory germ of spaces and spectators.
