The book addresses the nature and functioning of the representation of the body in the contemporary, from the perspective of the history of art, photography, fashion, iconography, semiotics and gender studies. Around the material-symbolic constitution of the body in the visual production of Leandro Allochis, six unpublished essays by researchers from Argentina, Spain and the United States provide keys for the reading of the body in the contemporary scene and its particular artistic materializations, through the use of of aesthetic repertoires of the artistic tradition, the popular imaginary and the mass visual culture. Images and texts that account for the shifts, deconstructions and modeling of current physicality, the first trace and metaphor of our time. Guest writers: Rodrigo Alonso, Paula Croci, Julio Sánchez and Ángel Navarro of Argentina, along with John Pultz (U.S.A.) and Francisco Zurian (Spain).
