“The appearance of iconic manga characters from Japan in contemporary art is at the center of the contribution by gastón j. muñoz j. (The University of Chile). He demonstrates how a recent painting by Marco Arias uses citations from the global manga bestseller Dragon Ball to comment on Chile’s post-dictatorial society, the affective necessities of children under increasingly neoliberalist conditions that affect family life, but moreso persisting and renewed homophobic and racial stereotypes. Manga, or more precisely, elements which evoke manga, are interpreted here as an interface; a subcultural code of alterity which allows the artist to subvert both naturalized media tropes and fundamental social issues.”
