Katia Arfara

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interweaving first-person narratives, archives, autobiography, film, and live music, Lola Arias shifts her audience's attention towards the nature of memory, revealing the inadequacy of binaries such as fact and fiction, truth and imagination. Arias's major works explore the construction of collective and personal memory in relation to the economic, social, cultural, and psychological influences of the military dictatorships on contemporary Argentinian and Chilean societies.
