DECEMBER 2: TORTURED BY FASHION!

TORTURED BY FASHION: Making Memory through Corporate Advertising

Ksenija Bilbija (Professor of Spanish at the University of Wisconsin-Madison) analyses torture imagery that appears in Diesel and Ripley advertising campaigns for jeans in Argentina (1998) and Chile (2006). This talk will offer a possible answer to the following question: what happens to a society when an image associated with the collective trauma, an image that was never recorded, a snapshot that was never taken, gets unknowingly and carelessly recreated with a purpose completely foreign to any commemorative function? 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2010:  4.15PM

Smith Campus Center, Room 208, Pomona College

Funding for this event is provided by the Latin American Studies program and the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Pomona College.
