The Third Gaze. Representation and Performance.

Abstract in spanish

Departing from an historical analysis of the relationship between anthropology and art, via their mutual connection to the photographic image, the author establishes the need to conceive cultural representation as a performative exercise of cultural inter-action. She conceives contemporary visual anthropology as a very wide field, open to aesthetic experimentation; a new form of approximating social research through an interdisciplinary perspective, that relates to the new theories of complexity by conceiving the embodiment of knowledge as a process, an exercise of creative experimentation in constant transformation.

Keywords: anthropology,art,representation,image.
