COLLECTION / 1945-1989 / Latin America / Counterculture and urban guerrilla

150 documents.

The term counterculture was coined by the American historian Theodore Roszak in his work, dating from 1968, The Making of a Counterculture, which refers to the cultural norms, references, parameters and values contrary to those already established in a particular society.

Within the section titled ‘Latin America 1920–2000’, and under the heading ‘Counterculture’, Archivo Lafuente presents a small collection of documents dating from the period 1950–1985 and originating, essentially, from three countries: Argentina, Uruguay and Venezuela. The collection consists of books, magazines, posters, leaflets, photographs and printed matter that document thoughts, theories and activities related to radical leftist, anti-imperialist, national liberation, revolutionary and resistance movements, such as the Tupamaros in Uruguay.

This set of documents includes original posters such as ¡Tu quieres paz! Frente izquierda lista 1001; leaflets, such as various issues of Documentos y antecedentes (1968–1970) edited by the Movimiento de Liberación Nacional (Tupamaros); the photograph Panther’s Demonstration (1970), by United Press International; books, such as Tupamaros: la única vanguardia (Montevideo, 1969), by Carlos Núñez and Estrategia de la guerrilla urbana (Montevideo, 1969), by Abraham Guillén; as well as magazine issues, such as Arte y crítica (Buenos Aires), Contracultura (Buenos Aires, 1970–1971), Nadaísmo 70 (Bogotá, 1970), Pucuna (Quito, 1963–1965), El Matrero (Uruguay, 1971) and 26 M. Nada ni nadie trampeará nuestro destino (Montevideo, 1971).
