Late book culture in Argentina by Craig Epplin( )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern literary culture depended on the medium of the print book. Today, with the advent of digital technologies, it is far from apparent that print is, or should be, the vehicle of choice for contemporary writers. Print has been placed in relief, as the book becomes a site of experimentation with new platforms for writing. Among Latin American countries, none has been as crucial player in the world of print as Argentina. Argentine presses were the channel for many of the great modern literary experiments in Latin America. As such, it comes as no surprise that today, when those same presses have been gobbled up by transnational media conglomerates and digital technologies abound, Argentine writers would be attentive to the shifting media of literature. Late Book Culture in Argentina chronicles that shift. Epplin offers readings of some of the most innovative Argentine writers and collective projects of recent years: Osvaldo Lamborghini, César Aira, the cardboard publishing house Eloísa Cartonera, the poetry project Estación Pringles, Sergio Chejfec, and Pablo Katchadjian. This corpus provides a lens through which to understand the numerous experiments with literary formats in Argentina today. These experiments take on a number of forms--digital, artisanal, and collective--and they provide the ferment for some of Argentina's most audacious contemporary literature. As such they deserve critical attention and theoretical examination"--
Mario Bellatin : el giro hacia el procedimiento y la literatura como proyecto by Andrea Cote( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies the work of Latin-American writer Mario Bellatin as a paradigmatic example of a tendency in contemporary literature that I called the procedural turn. This notion comprehends a manifestation in the art of the last three decades where artists exhibit the creative process as an artistic product in itself while engaging in the design of alternative practices that challenge the limits between artistic fields and disciplines. Through the analysis of a corpus of selected books and performances by Mario Bellatin, I explore the procedural turn that manifests in his work; particularly through the poetics of literature as a project, where individual books are seen as unfinished manifestations of a wider performance. I study his works vis-a-vis other contemporary Latin American writers and representatives of twentieth century European avant-garde. I establish a dialogue between Bellatin's proposal and an artistic tradition that critically approaches material culture of literary products as well as notions of authorship and artistic community. I finally argue that Bellatin's poetic of procedures involves, ultimately, a notion of literary language as a generator not of discourses but of experiences
