LONGONI, Ana. Is Tucumán still burning?.Translated byMarta Ines Merajver. Sociedad (B. Aires) [online]. 2006, vol.1Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0327-7712.
Over the last few years, the collective, artistic-and-political performance "Tucumán Arde", carried out by avant-garde artists from Rosario and Buenos Aires in late 1968, has become the most frequently revisited work in Argentinean art. It has also given rise to countless pieces of writing from the pen of historians, curators, art critics and political activists. On the face of such renewed interest, this paper poses a question about the ways in which Tucumán Arde is read by the activists-artists that opted for street actions in the last decade, and what has remained from the original experience in present artistic-and-political practices.
