Imágenes que resisten
Andrea Soto Calderón


This book analyzes one of the most relevant critical categories for examining power relations: genealogy. Considered a knowledge of minutiae, of recovery of memories, of processes, of conflicts, of particularities not so much erased as neglected. The question that opens here is what could be a genealogy through the image? What are its powers? What possibilities does it enable?
