This book is a retrospective volume on Latin American new media arts, arising from the Cities in Dialogue exhibition that was held in in FACT in conjunction with the University of Liverpool and the Liverpool Independents Biennial in 2014. There is also plenty of detail about the other events that were held during 2014 and into 2015, including workshops, artist talks, Twitter galleries and the Artist in Residence and his activities.

One chapter is dedicated to each artist and the works they presented at the exhibition: Brian Mackern from Uruguay, Bárbara Palomino from Chile, Marina Zerbarini from Argentina, and Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga from the US. There is also an extensive chapter about the exciting new residence artwork created by Artist in Residence Brian Mackern. Entitled This Too Shall Pass// Affective Cartographies, this work is based on footage obtained through a series of unplanned journeys along Liverpool’s urbanscape. The gathering of information and recording of sound and visual material during these journeys is then remixed in this artwork by different parameters (volume levels, transparencies, zooms, fragmentations, crossfadings, speeds of timelines, etc.) controlled by Liverpool’s “socio economic historic curve” of the last century.

In this book you can find out about all of these works, and other pieces by these artists. The book includes full colour images throughout, including exclusive images of works in progress, as well as excerpts of interviews with the artists. At the back of the book you can find links to online resources, including the art works themselves, audio interviews with the artists, image galleries, and more.

Claire Taylor is Professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Liverpool.
