Latest Past Events

Lecture: Colonized Temporalities, with Carmen Ibáñez Cueto

UL 105 - Hoerle Lecture Hall, The New School University Center 63 5th Ave, New York

Many historical accounts of the Spanish conquest of the Americas depict this as the clash of different cultures. Professor Ibáñez will further deepen this characterization by using as an entry point the matter of temporalities, looking specifically at the high Andean region of South America.

Dialogue: SKINS OF THE FUTURE

Online

A public conversation between young Argentine imagineers and relevant personalities from Colombia. An exchange of experiences, desires, illusions and fears that arose at the moment of capturing what the authors felt, lived, dreamed or feared on their imaginary journey to 2084, following an itinerary based on the "Skins" by the artist Hundertwasser.

Since 2006, we have hosted more than 150 events with over 6,000 attendees. This agenda has helped OLA become a recognized platform for the dissemination and discussion of Latin American ideas to an international audience in New York, as well as an active collaborator with universities and civil society organizations across the region.
