Seen in Corrientes

As with all three actual cities that I have been in so far, there is loads of art – traditional and contemporary and formal and informal – all around. Statues and graffiti and murals and busts abound in Corrientes. I really should take better notes.

1970s Dirty War; Videla: “Isn’t the World Cup great?” Woman: “Excuse me, but you didn’t happen to see my son?” Look up “Las Madresde la Plaza de Mayo”

On one of the pillars of the bridge to Resistencia. Stared at this for a while. Corrientes is so far one of the few places where I’ve seen “aborigines” as they are called here represented extensively in both traditional and non-traditional artforms
