Conference and Closing of the Tribute to Carlos Fuentes, with Julio Ortega
Organized by the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago in collaboration with Consulate G. of Mexico, Contratiempo, Loyola University, DePaul University, University of Chicago and the UNAM
Physical borders, as well as mental and metaphorical barriers, abound in Carlos Fuentes' work as much as in his intellectual biography. His work is an Art of breaking borders, but also a critique of the proliferation of new limits and, not infrequently, a celebration of the undoing of frontiers. Fuentes writes that the border between the US and Mexico is "a scar." But it is also a crossroads, a painful place, and a shared destiny. Fuentes' work offers a border-crossing map, open and creative, where literature is the permanent construction of an open space in language and dialogue.
