Ernesto Cardenal: utopía crítica, indigenismo y bienes culturales en la experiencia de Solentiname

Leonel Delgado Aburto
Universidad de Chile
ldelgadoa@u.uchile.cl

A partir de una lectura de Las ínsulas extrañas, segundo tomo de las memorias de Ernesto Cardenal, este ponencia destaca la importancia de la producción cultural, sobre todo la pintura naíf, en la experiencia de Solentiname, comunidad contemplativa dirigida por Cardenal en Nicaragua durante los años 1960´s-1970s. Un planteamiento básico es que Solentiname se constituye como contrainstitución, es decir, que opera desplazando una idea tradicional de comunidad mística. Además, destaco que la circulación de bienes culturales al ser tan fundamental para la existencia de la comunidad, adelanta un concepción de cultura como recurso que influyó en el proyecto cultural de la revolución sandinista. Subrayo también la importancia que tuvo para la constitución de la comunidad el indigenismo, que ofrece la idealización de una comunidad, sujeto y espiritualidad alternativos. Propongo, por último, que la pintura naíf es un producto transcultural que indica una alianza de clases y en torno al cual se elaboran nuevos posiciones de sujeto.

23rd Latin American Social and Public Policy (LASPP) Conference
March 29 - 30, 2019

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at the University of Pittsburgh welcomes faculty and students to the 23rd Latin American Social and Public Policy (LASPP) Conference. At the conference, researchers can present their scholarly work related to social and public policy in Latin America.
Our team is focused on assuring a high-quality and open environment for the exchange of ideas and the improvement of works in progress. Following the multidisciplinary tradition of CLAS, we are interested in facilitating dialogue across disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and methodologies. In that spirit, we encourage the organization of panels around problems, rather than disciplines, and welcome submissions from the social sciences, arts, humanities, and cultural studies.
