This chapter describes José Carlos Mariátegui's reflections on art and culture and relates them to a broader critique of conservative and bourgeois values in postcolonial Peru. It vividly addresses the complexity of Mariátegui's critical discourse. Some observations on certain historicocultural conditionings of the processes of intertextuality present in Mariátegui's work are discussed in this chapter. It shows that myth plays a key role in his critique of bourgeois rationalism and how it is the basis of his counterhegemonic project. He sketches out a link between myth and popular culture.

Keywords:   art, popular culture, José Carlos Mariátegui, postcolonial Peru, bourgeois rationalism, counterhegemony
