Resumen

MENARD, André. THE BECOMING-IMAGE OFINDIAN PEOPLE. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.50, pp.133-140. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000200010.

Based on Alais Riegl's work devoted to the "modern cult of monuments", wepropose an analysis of the current status of the indi-genouspeople in the international field, interpreting it as thepassage from a becoming-monument endowed with "history-value", to a becoming-monument endowed with "age-value". In other words, we posit that the indigenous subject acquires the value of representing the exotic vulnerability of cultural diversity. Within this frame, indigenous people seems to function like what Hans Belting or Maurice Blanchot have conceptualized through the notion of "image", that is what remains of a person or an object once it has been withdrawn from life (or from shelf life in the case of a tool) by death, damage or museum operation. After applying to this becoming-image of the indigenous people a reading based on Freud and Marx's theories on fetish, we conclude proposing a perspective that releases those images from their representational function as signifiers of a specific time or a specific culture, by stressing their heterochronic and political strength.

Palabras clave : Indigenous peoples; monument; age-value; fetish; heterochrony.
