Abstract:

Contemporary Honduran artwork often incorporates dissident discursive elements. They refer to the unjust social conditions suffered by many Hondurans today and seek to engage the critical subjectivity of viewers through their open-ended configuration. Artists seek the active participation of spectators in the elaboration of meaning, so that the sense given to recent events in Honduran history by dominant institutions can be contested on a popular basis. This trend in contemporary Honduran art desires to generate, through a dialectical counter-positioning of the self-contradictory discourses of the state and its clients with the sober reality known to the sixty-five per cent of Hondurans who live beneath the poverty line, a new sensibility that would resist and lead beyond the false forms presently representing the nation's reality.
