PITMAN, Thea. Tactical and Tactile Resistance at the Intersection of New Media and Indigenous Textile Arts. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.45, pp.43-63. ISSN 2077-3323.

This article focuses on creative work conducted at the intersection of textile art and new media art in Latin America. In particular, given that Indigenous textile arts often form a source of inspiration for projects led by non-Indigenous artists, it seeks to examine how such projects may be said to work in support of Indigenous resistance, contrasting a tactical resistant modality with a more “tactile” approach. It first offers an overview of Latin American art in this field, before focusing on the work of Mexican artist Amor Muñoz and Bolivian artist aruma (Sandra de Berduccy).

Keywords : Textile art; new media art; activism; Indigenous communities; Bolivia; Mexico.
