HENAO, Simón. The river and its dispossessions. Aesthetic perspectives of dispossession in Colombia. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp.167-188. ISSN 1852-9615.

This paper seeks to deepen the study of narratives of dispossession in Colombia understood as narratives that shape a category linked to the will to write the dispossession, to expose its modulations, show its variations and reveal the vicissitudes of victims and victimizers through writing whether fiction, testimony or chronicle, as well as through film, dramaturgy and plastic arts. Using concepts such as community, dispossession and testimony, will be questioned works by Teatro La Candelaria, Patricia Nieto, Clemencia Echeverri and Juan Manuel Echavarría, pieces and works with diverse languages linked to the river as a disappearing technology that pose different positions against the dispossession and mechanisms of its representation.

Keywords : Colombian literature; Colombian art; XXI century; Disappearance; Dispossession.
