Abstract

GONZALEZ CARRASCO, Diego Andrés  and  CARRASCO, Ana María. MEMORY AND IDENTITY. THE AIMARA TEXTILE TRADITION IN NORTHERN CHILE AND THE BUILT SPACE. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2020, n.63, pp.91-100. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812020000300091.

This article exposes the textile craftwork as memory and identity that Aymara people endured after the migration to coastal cities in northern Chile and manifesting itself in the urban housing's built spaces. Through descriptions of the techniques and tools involved in the textile process and pointing out how it is inserted in the migratory process experienced by the Aymara families in their installation in the city of Arica, we seek to contextualize and explain through a case study, their built presence in urban Aymara homes, as well as the relevance of this activity in the process of creating a sense of belonging to the urban space of Aymara artisan women.

Keywords : Aimara; Textile Tradition; Housing; Heritage; Arica.
