Gay Ethos and Countercultural in Argentina's Artistic Field during the Transition to Democracy
I propose exploring relationships and transferences between homosexuality and the counterculture from a sociological perspective, beyond aspects related to LGBT politics, like: 1. A type of sociability derived from the homosexual “insular cosmos” which existed until approximately the mid-90s; 2. A selective homoerotic tradition, encouraged by national and international cultural models, in the face of the prevailing intellectual canon; 3. A morality constituted around the authority of the group itself. These dimensions favored a non-instrumental relationship with the lettered culture which was interwoven emotionally with personal life and which allowed actors with no significant cultural inheritance to become involved with the high culture practices of heterodox social actors.
