Abstract

[During the Argentine process called “Democratic Spring” (1983), a series of countercultural movements emerged in which we can recognize a common desire to dismantle the censorship fences installed by the authoritarianism of the previous military coup. In this context, a set of minority strategies carried out by young punks, prostitutes, sexual dissidents, and lumpen artists aimed to disrupt the imaginable order through the complicity of insurgent action against the demand for integrationist visibility and democratic consensus, guided by the energy of negative affects. This work asks about the ways in which these events can be historized, recognizing the disappointment, dizziness, hesitation, and precariousness of their political positions as structures of a brown queer common, recovering the epistemological potential of oral history as an impure decolonization methodology.]
