Workshop run by María Virginia Jaua: Only poetry isn´t shit / the critical event within fiction

Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 January, from17.00 to 20.00

Thursday 30 January, from 17.00 to 19.00 At 19.30, public moment.

At consonni.


Is there a place for criticism in the cultural productions of our times? What happens when an immanent critique occurs in literature that is termed “fiction”? Are we beholding a writing-work change of paradigm or, on the contrary, witnessing a practice that is on the way out? Through these questions we will attempt to discover the critical event within certain literary productions categorised as “fiction”. The exploration begins with works by the authors Bolaño, Sergio Chejfec and Mario Bellatin.


Free workshop with prior registration until Monday 27 if you write to, until capacity is reached. More info here.
