Fredi Casco

Born in 1967 in Paraguay
Lives and works in Asunción, Paraguay

In his work, he deals with the communications media, technical reproduc(t)ibility, popular and native culture, religiosity, and psychoanalysis. He holds a revisionist stance vis-á -vis the narrative of tradition and power present in different local, popular and religious, visual and iconographic, displays. Through subtle transgressions and a great deal of irony, he examines the apparent transparency and neutrality of different media such as television and photography. His work constantly explores the limits between the so-called high culture and popular culture, and the tensions between official history and its “minor” documents. Casco reveals the imaginaries and cultural consumption of contexts shaped by post-colonial conditions, as is the case with Paraguay.
