Synopsis

The article focuses on the question of prose and narrative. The author states that there are no engimas in the Madí narrative, neither does it evoke daily life with its tribulation and sentimentality, but instead evokes enduring allusions that undertake paths of transformation leading directly to reality.

Annotations

 

The magazine Arte Madí Universal [Universal Madí Art] was published from 1947 until June 1954. Gyula Kosice (1924–2016) served as editor; its colloborators included: Rhod Rothfuss, Diyi Laañ, H.-J. Koellreutter, Masami Kuni, Valdo Wellington, Alberto Sartorio, Alberto Hidalgo, and M.G. de la Fuene, among others. The first issue included the Manifiesto de la Escuela [School Manifesto].

Diyi Laañ was born in Buenos Aires in 1927 and died in the same city in 2007. In 1946 she joined the Madí Movement, and her works were shown in numerous retrospective exhibitions. At the same time, she also contributed poetry, stories, and illustrations to the magazine Arte Madí Universal.

This article by Diyi Laañ has been selected because it documents the interest [that existed] in developing the tenets of Madí art through all disciplines; in this case establishing the bases for a prose and narrative devoid of enigmas and the evocation of suffering.
