January 25, 2016 1) What connects these very different ways of art? Do they all belong in one category? -Do images of authority belong with images of resistance? -Why do paintings of such different ideas belong together? -Is there a logical thread that binds them together? -Should different types of art be separated into different categories i.e., conceptual art, paintings, and performance art? -Link: all made by Latino artists 2) What do we mean when we say Latino? -Latino is a very broad term -includes Hispanic, Portuguese, Caribbean, Haitian, Dominican Republic -Spanish, French, Portuguese speaking -Chicano - variation on being a Mexican-American -political identity associated with resistance -associated with Civil Rights movement and being an activist -Hispanic - term of official forms in U.S. -racially most identified with Spain, used to describe the most in power -lost this meaning when Anglos took over -Latino is a term mostly used in the U.S. -sense of solidarity to many distinct groups -wide range of races, cultures, political views, etc. January 29, 2016 Immigration -Americans view immigration as a crisis because: -fear that immigrants are taking jobs -question of legality -fear of their “criminality” -Why are Latinos in the USA? -old Spanish territories are part of current United States -areas in Southwest: Texas, California, New Mexico, etc. -Florida -image of accusatory Aztec warrior -artist takes familiar American image in Uncle Sam and warps it -statement of “Who’s the illegal alien PILGRIM?” points out that all American citizens have been immigrants or are descendants of immigrants -Juan Gonzalez - Harvest of Empire -immigration occurs because: -at time it is encouraged by U.S. and immigrants are used as resources -ex. during wartime -U.S. intervention and occupation of other nations destabilizes political field and economy - produces immigration due to terror caused by unrest -U.S. colonization -U.S. so called immigration crisis is self-inflicted -example: NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) -agreement banned tariffs in order to promote free trade -could move business easily, but not people -ended up resulting in a destabilization of the Mexican economy which led to immigration -underlying assumptions: -Americans do not understand their own relationship with Latin America -leads to a lot of fear -solutions: -U.S. needs to take more responsibility/accountability for hand in problems they cause that lead to immigration surges -need to start looking at immigrants as humans and not dehumanize them -people need to get educated -Samuel Huntington - Who Are We? -fear argument -invested in idea of a distinct American identity -basically equal to the Anglo-Protestant identity -immigrants do not make an effort to assimilate -fears 2 separate cultures within 1 country -to become part of the United States need to follow Anglo-Protestant American “Creed” to keep our identity -immigrants need to have patriotism/sacrifice -need to speak English -play by rules of people in power -need to assimilate -Mexican immigration problem -huge border proximity -no true assimilation -vey back and forth between two countries, maintain strong ties to family/ origin/culture -Mexican doesn’t fit into American identity due to sheer size of immigration influx -can lead to them becoming a dominant group in some areas -underlying assumptions: -negative connotation with non-Anglo Protestant culture -problem with bi-lingual people -maintain Mexican culture which means they cannot be American -cannot have appreciation/love for both at once -power and resistance will always be hand in hand -power structure: push to assimilate Latinos -resistance: Chicano art, against assimilation
