The Art of Edilberto Jiménez and the Chungui Testimonies
This section critically examines the work of artist-anthropologist Edilberto Jiménez, his drawings and retablos that portray the horrors experienced in the Ayacucho district of Chungui. By centering analysis of the conflict in the Andes and within an Andean cultural framework, these works challenge the terms of the dominant transitional justice process and highlight the victim-survivors’ stakes in post-conflict labors. They rely on and transmit Andean forms of knowledge and knowledge-creation and contain symbols and references not readily understandable to the non-Andean public, while still attempting to communicate with that public. Challenging dominant concepts of citizenship and belonging, reconciliation and healing, center and periphery, Jiménez privileges an Andean world vision, while acknowledging and strategically deploying certain key Western concepts (democracy, justice, and human rights), with an Andean twist.
