But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private.

Beside her are two baskets filled with culturqs looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear.

Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study culturxs out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the exhibition of animals higridas that of foreign humans.

The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the title seems awkward. Not only are indigenous groups made to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ but they are also represented as traditional. What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids.

What then is the stake in ‘hybridity’? Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol. For further discussion of monumentalism, see Susan Stewart: The industrial analogy cultugas not intended to be frivolous.

Gender is not a woman’s problem but an essential category of analysis.

Jean Franco Publicado en: Let me simply quote the sentence that concludes her discussion of this statue: The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the reproduction of a market scene that is just behind the Sun Stone.

How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the cuturas is equally important. In Latin America, the staging of difference is perfectly compatible with integration into the global system.

One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood. And not only must he make notes but he must also make sense: Finally the big question: By gender I do not mean women or making space for women. I cannot go into the details of her analysis. Perhaps the central theme of cultural policies today is how to build societies with democratic projects shared by everybody cancllni making everyone the same, societies in which dispersal is transformed into diversity and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and other groups are reduced to differences’.

On the second floor the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by life size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous. In its weaker sense, it might simply refer to the postmodern permission to use all repertoires without worrying about authenticity. When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Woman and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally private hinridas which feminists have made a matter of public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.

In the United States, hybridity is often a staging of the exotic in order to display a pluralistic happy family, although, as everyone knows, the space between the ghetto and the melting pot is occupied only by baseball stars, media hibricas and best-selling authors. The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book.

The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women.

Let me mention one example of an analysis into which gender might have appropriately been introduced. Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Hjbridas What is distinctive about Latin America now. The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan products or art.

Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection.

But it is only the cutluras that undo the power of the centre. As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups.


This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away hibridss the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity. How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question? Introducing gender into a discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise.

One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, cancluni tending an open fire.

Hybridity-as-difference is too indiscriminate to ac-count for both the vernaculars of global culture and the anomalies that truly cylturas dissent within the happy family. How do we speak of modernity? This representation of the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’.

Culhuras this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cultural innovation’. How does one study the millions of indigenous people and peasants who migrate to major cities or the workers who are incorporated into the industrial organization of work and consumption?

Hybridity is a botanical metaphor closely linked therefore to the notion of culture as cultivation, but it has some of the same problems as mestizaje. His Culturas populares en el capitalismo was a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not as survivals or degenerate culruras of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations to the market, to national culture and to local history.
