The emergence of arts/literary group El Techo de la Ballena and their quest to establish an avant-garde in Venezuela during the 1960s, marked a rebellious desire to break out of the “asphyxsiating” cultural milieu that surrounded them and replace it with a new praxis. This study approaches key texts by El Techo to identify a logic of inversion deployed in the battle they staged and the implications of such an approach.

Once I get this up and running properly, I’ll post the chapters from this project.
