"The authentic image of the Nation: the Argentine Republic at the Ibero-American Exhibition in Seville (1929) and at the International Exhibition in Paris (1937)"
This project aims to study the characteristics of the “representation” of the Argentine Republic in two international events: the Ibero-American Exposition in Seville (1929) and the International Exposition in Paris (1937). While Martín Noel, the architect that designed the Argentine Pavillion, wrote that the Ibero-American Exposition in Seville confirmed “the noble Hispanic lineage of America,” the news about the Argentine participation in Paris in 1937 aimed to describe the “conquering flame of space” of the allegedly thriving Argentine nation. I will analyze the characteristics of these national representations, their links with other nationalist discourses of the period, and the participation of several social agents in their formation. What images were chosen to function as the “authentic” representation of the nation? What differences can be found between the Argentine representation in Spain and the French capital? What cultural agents intervened in these configurations? What objects circulated, and how were they read in foreign lands?
