El 8 de marzo de 2023, lanzaremos un documental que presenta un registro del Festival de Arte Decolonial y Antirracista de CARLA, que se llevó a cabo en el Contact Theatre de Manchester en abril de 2022 y que presentó en persona a muchos de los artistas que han trabajado con CARLA durante los últimos 3 años.
On 8 March 2023, we will launch a documentary that presents a record of CARLA’s public Festival of Decolonial and Anti-Racist Art, which was held in Manchester’s Contact Theatre in April 2022 and which featured in person many of the artists who have worked with CARLA over the last 3 years.
After the success of the Festival of Latin American Anti-Racist and Decolonial Art held as part of the CARLA project, a series of events have been organised by our collaborators in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia to promote CARLA’s online exhibition and showcase the work of our artistic partners.

On Saturday 23 April 2022, we held a Festival of Latin American Anti-Racist and Decolonial Art at the Contact Theatre. The event launched a major online exhibition that has emerged from the CARLA project and also showcased the work of some of the Latin American artists with whom we have been collaborating over the past two years, who are creators of colour at the forefront of antiracist struggles in their countries.
CARLA has just published a new audio podcast (with English subtitles), in which the members of the Indigenous hip hop group, Eskina Qom, from Argentina, talk about their music and experiences and anti-Indigenous racism.
The myth of a white Argentina is as powerful and persistent as it is false. However, also powerful and long-standing are the challenges to this common-sense understanding.
Reflexionamos sobre la dificultad de discutir el racismo en Argentina, y revisamos las múltiples experiencias desde las que les artistas entrevistades aquí despliegan prácticas antirracistas.
Collaborative work between the film producer and director Guido Simonetti and the actor director Fabián Benitez, who coordinates the collective “Actores de Villa,” generates some unusual images, for example in the short film, Acoua (2019). The film describes a job interview where racialized class differences are embodied in the work of the actors and with camera-work that captures minimal interactions that I analyze as “microaggressions”.
El trabajo en conjunto entre el productor y realizador cinematográfico Guido Simonetti y el director de actores Fabián Benitez, quien coordina el colectivo “Actores de Villa,” es generador de imágenes poco usuales, que se materializan en el corto Acoua (2019). El film describe una entrevista laboral en donde las diferencias racializadas de clase se corporizan a partir del trabajo de los actores y una cámara que capta interacciones mínimas que analizo como “microagresiones”.
