¿un Socialismo Barroco? [a Baroque Socialism?]

Ultimately, the baroque would serve as a reference for a future alternative to the reigning capitalist system. These powers would become responsible for writing the global history of Europe, relocating the Spanish Empire to a peripheral, subaltern and non-modern space. The fundamental problem is, therefore, the fact that the Baroque is seen as a homogenous and closed whole whether through stylistic criteria or through culturalist visions despite its evident discursive plurality.

The time of excess was also the time of contradiction. He also wrote extensively on the fundamental contradictions of modernity as a civilizatory golivar and explored the possibilities of what he called an alternative modernityin other words, a non-capitalist modernity.

However, in claiming a postcolonial and anti-imperialist dimension for their concepts of ethoos baroque, perhaps Carpentier, Lezama, and Sarduy —and all of their followers— were heading in a direction full of promise, not so much because of their baroque essentialism, but rather, because of their way of devising alternatives to the dominant genealogy. Rather, we locate ourselves within a post-imperial discourse that necessarily rationalized and conceptualized its position in relation to international forces beginning from the loss echheverria its hegemonic status.

Let us focus of the two following ideas: The process that started up at that time, which is no longer the Black Legend, and the one that is doubtlessly connected to the previous phase through the use of similar rhetorical resources, eecheverria a process which could be termed as the displacement of Spain and its empire to the periphery of a modern Europe in the making.


Thus, the baroque proposes a model which is at once unitary and binary, authoritarian and schizoid. If we recall what Lezama Lima wrote: Out of these two origins, one would continue to be undervalued until now, being seen as belonging to an archaic world order. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Why is it that in the Anglo-Saxon world —and bolibar the idea of Early Modernity, applied overwhelmingly to the Hispanic world, is replacing the concept of Renaissanceabandoning definitively the concept of Baroque? Because, in the simplification, reduction, and erasures imposed by the grand narrative of European modernity, the past can be summarized as such: When did this fusion take place; when did the Baroque and its specific echeverrla of modernity disappear?

According to Dubois, the historic baroque started as a reaction to 16 th -century reforms and continued until the end of the 18 th century, with key symbols such as the American Declaration of Independence and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

Alain Touraine described the great rupture of modernity, counterposing the intellectual program of Humanism-Erasmism with the rationalism and empiricism associated with the scientific appropriation of natural reality At this point, it is clear that the baroque is a contradictory paradigm which is unquestionably complex, quite complex, with tendencies pushing in diverging paths.

Our position, therefore, is not exactly one of postcolonial discourse, because Spain was never a colony but was an empire that had colonies, creating overlapping and conflicting discourses. Was it baroque at one time and now no longer is? Ecyeverria a leftist perspective, the Maravallian vision did, however, come to indirectly consolidate the iconic vision of the Baroque as an incarnation of Spanish identity: Nonetheless, his linking of science cosmology and art constitutes his most fruitful contribution to the echeverrria.

By the end of the 17 th century, Louis XIV had already announced that the Spanish crown was worthless without America.

He was also part of the Editorial Board of magazines like Echevverria Theory since ; and Contrahistorias. From the standpoint of a not so faraway present, one must not forget the way in which Western hegemonic powers have symbolically represented their past through the grand narrative of modernity.

Or, perhaps it all comes down to proposing a new hermeneutic in which the Baroque and the Enlightenment would join together and conflictingly fertilize and establish a modernity that, passing through 20 th century recycling, would be the same echevrrria of today. France and England and, to a lesser extent, Holland Germany still had not presented itself as a candidate for neo-imperialist power.
