Rosenberg explores Latin American creative creation inquisitive about the potential of justice after the institution, upward thrust, and ebb of the human rights narrative round the flip of the final century. sooner than this, key literary and creative initiatives articulated Latin American modernity through trying to deal with and complement the state’s lack of ability to include and enact justice.

            Rosenberg argues that because the themes of emancipation, identification, and revolution not outline social issues, Latin American inventive creation is now located at some extent the place the common sense and prerequisites of marketization intersect with the concept of rights wherein topics outline themselves politically. Rosenberg grounds his learn in discussions of literature, movie, and visible paintings (novels of political refoundations, fictions of fact and reconciliation, visible arts in accordance with instances of disappearance, movies approximately police violence, creative collaborations with police forces, and judicial documentaries). In doing so, he presents a hugely unique exam of the paradoxical calls for on present creative works to supply either capital worth and foster human dignity.
