BARRETTO, Margarita  and  BIALOGORSKI, Mirta. Artesanas migrantes, saberes ancestrales y una experiencia en el Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández (MAP). Cuad. Cent. Estud. Diseñ. Comun., Ensayos [online]. 2022, n.111, pp.175-189.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 1853-3523.

Grounded on a project developed at José Hernández Museum of Popular Art (GCBA) with women textile artisans from Argentina and Paraguay, this article deliberates about folk art, ancestral knowledge, memory, migration, identity and cultural hybridization, concerning their experiences as migrant weavers in Buenos Aires city. The aforementioned concepts are defined, reference is made to some respondents life history and to the meaning they give to the act of weaving. In terms of their products as well as the way they are made and also the attachment to their homeland to which they often return, they are carriers of traditional knowledge, as well as a hybrid culture. Entering and leaving modernity, they integrate into the city through abilities they inherited from their elder folks. Being in two worlds reconfigures their identities and gives a cultural imprint to their creations.
