The dreams of the spider woman was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name held at the Jean-Louis Larivière Foundation of Latin American photography, inaugurated on November 15 of photographs held in the collection o Jean-Louis Larivière. The exhibition ran until March 15, 2023. The catalogue opens with a foreword by Argentine writer Alan Pauls: his multi-faceted analysis recalls that well before it inspired the name of this exhibition, Manuel Puig’s fictional work The kiss of the spider woman was a seminal novel of the 70s. Its long shadow arches over the powerful images in the photographs, for the central themes of both book and exhibition turn on political violence, the role of women in society, and sexual identity, issues that left an indelible mark on the period running from the ‘60s to the ‘80s throughout the region.
