Course description

The fragmentary and heterogeneous quality of the Caribbean corresponds to its inscrutable nature. It holds such mystery, diversity and movement that it seems to embody the marine world on land. Its historical and environmental avatars recreate colors, habits, rhythms, creations and ways of life. This natural continuity forms an inseparable network in which the pleasures, the customs and the violence all speak of the sea in which they are contained. There is beauty and enchantment, but also a power that is difficult to control. This course proposes to fly over some milestones of the Caribbean archipelago and its historical evolution that bursts like a wave in its literary, musical, urban, plastic, political and social forms. The history of the Americas is born and projected from here like a navel. As the cradle of miscegenation, the Caribbean receives and triggers signals that come and go from all points on the globe. This can be felt in personalities like the Cuban artist Wifredo Lam, the influence of salsa in New York, baseball, percussion, and the body. The Caribbean is the body and this course proposes to read it in the life and work of personalities such as Fina Garcia Marruz, Reinaldo Arenas, Felix Gonzalez Torres, Emira Rodriguez, Eugenio Espinoza, Paolo Gasparini, Amada Granado, Sonia Sanoja, Rita Indiana, Eduardo Lalo, Celia Cruz, Cheo Feliciano and Ruben Blades
