Reflect on the role that photo montage has played in celebrating and criticising different forms of power
Tearing Up the Past focuses on conflict and artistic resistance in Latin America. Collage and photo montage are ways to express a political dispute or to combat those who attempt to cover up traumatic events.
These collages and photomontages are seen as critical responses to images that circulate in mass media, family albums and public archives.
They bring to light the hidden, the silenced and the invisible. In doing this they make a political stance on the images of history and the history of images.
In Tate Exchange, encounter a display of work by Argentine artists. This includes work by photographer Lucila Quieto, who will be leading a series of workshops.
