Title
La (est)ética del hambre en el Período Especial
Author
Abstract
During the last two decades, a number of authors and filmmakers, residing in or outside Cuba, have made reference to the context of the Special Period in their artistic creations. This essay wants to propose a reflection on the representation modalities of hunger, its exploration, and even, exploitation. The analysis of a corpus of films and novels related to the Special Period proposes four «strategies» each one further away from the referential world marked by scarcity: stereotype; contrast; pushing into the background; metonymy (meaning displacement). The analysis reveals that these different «strategies» work towards specific purposes in the field of ethics, aesthetics, and poetics of these artistic expressions.
