Beyond Rangoon

Here our dear friend Natalia Avendaño Muiño stands in front of her portrait, Natalia’s Letters, at the opening of, I Know Not These My Hands, at Fotografiska.
Two years ago, Natalia discovered a worn out pale green manila folder in her closet. It contained a forty-year old stack of letters, the correspondence between her Chilean father, Renato Leopold Avendaño Gutiérrez, and her Uruguayan mother, Gloria Nestar Jesusa Muiño Bentos.
In March of 1973, Renato, a member of the Tupamaros, was incarcerated at the outset of the Civic-Military Dictatorship of Uruguay. During the three years of his imprisonment, Gloria and Renato kept in touch through letters with moments of coded language. She, in her elegantly placed cursive, he, with a mangled typewriter. There are long passages in Renato’s letters where he is just looking at her, recounting her in every detail, following the passage of time in the new lines on her face. @coopergorfer #Iknownotthesemyhands #fotografiska #coopergorfer #uruguay #militarydictatorship #loveletters

Absolutely no filter. Not even a little. Leiden take a bow.

MOST RECENT

1970s Brazil was a dichotomy: a soccer superpower and "Country of the Future" run by a military dictatorship that severely repressed artists, intellectuals, and progressive activists. Under the thumb of extreme censorship, artists created some of Brazil’s most compelling musical/social/political movements and produced an incredible body of work before the digital age of mass consumption. The musicians of the Samba Society collective (which includes @banda_moforro and @oszagueiros) along with some very special guests, will defy genre boundaries and be in dialogue with current affairs and political movements. Don't miss "Brasil 70: Samba Soul Resistance" on August 4th at @fordtheatres. Buy tickets now! 📸 Evandro Teixeira (1968)

Maybe it takes 50 years of a #militarydictatorship before #freedomofthepress is celebrated by green man statue of famous journalist and a news and media museum.

This tree was carved by a political prisoner (Oscar Valdés) while he was kept in this prisoners camp during military dictatorship.

This is it, a glimpse of Mario Benedetti's career in one anthology, and being a poet of commitment throughout his life, it also serves as a nation's history. From early satire, to urgency of struggle (one poem dedicated to Raul Sendic), to years in exile, to seeking of post-authoritarian closure, ending in elderly introspection that is as biting as his early poems.
SLOWLY BUT SURELY
The future's coming slowly
slowly
but surely

right now it's hidden beyond
the surly clouds
and some still invisible
nimble heights
beyond the thunder's roar
and the spider's web

it's taking its time
like a determined flower
keeping track of the sun

perhaps that's why
daily life
prepares to greet it
settling exorbitant debts
opening new chapters in memory

but the future's
in no hurry
it's coming
slowly
finally bringing relief
bread for the hungry
battered angles
faithful swallows

slow
but not half-hearted

neither smug
nor a spoilsport
it's simply
coming
with its sharpened blade
and weighing scales
inquiring first
about our dreams
then our homelands
our latent memories
and our newborns

slowly
the future's coming
with its mondays and marches
its clenched fists and dark-ringed eyes and prjoects
slowly but swiftly
like a dim
still unnamed star

convalescent and slow
sheepish
proud
so very modest
that well-versed future we're shaping
we
and chance
but more and more we
less and less chance.

Former military dictator of Panama, Manuel Noriega has died. He was ousted by a U.S. invasion known as Operation Just Cause. Rest in Peace. Thoughts?
