Alcides Arguedas (1879-1946)
Alcides Arguedas was born in La Paz. Arguedas remains as one of the most challenging and interesting thinkers that Latin America produced. His Pueblo enfermo, originally published in 1909, is perhaps the first attempt to produce a conceptual analysis of colonialism from a non-political perspective.
Robert Fogaretta (1927-1979)
Musician, poet and plastic artist, Fogaretta remains unknown to the great majority of critics and readers as his works were unpublished during his life time. The sense of diaspora, multilinguism and travel, developed through his works, place him at the avant garde of the authors who considered the notion of periphery as central to any artictic work.
