ArticlesRos Gray (London) considers two art works made in recent years in Angola: the exhibition Lion & Ox, which featured art works by António Ole and Art Orienté objet, and the installation Icarus 13 by Kiluanji Kia Henda ("A Lingering Lusotopia: Thinking the Planetary from Angola"). María Amalia García writes about past disputes between Argentina and Brazil over hegemony in the region and proposes a new approach to Brazilian cultural intervention in Paraguay ("Hegemonies and Models of Cultural Modernization in South America: The Paraguay-Brazil Case"). Focusing on Artur Barrio, Jacques Coursil, and Damián Ortega, Fernanda Negrete discusses the plastic arts' non-dialectical engagement with materiality ("Chaos-monde and the Aesthetics of Depth in Artur Barrio, Jacques Coursil, and Damián Ortega").

In the Document section, we present a stenogram of an artists' meeting that took place in 1951 in Kishinev (as the capital of today's Republic of Moldova was called in those days). The text discloses some of the major issues and challenges faced by the members of this artist organization during the late Stalinist era.
