Julio Le Parc (1928) was born in the Province of Mendoza, in Argentina, and graduated in Buenos Aires. In 1955, he participated in the student movement that took over the country’s fine arts schools, and in 1958, Le Parc traveled to Paris on a scholarship. While there, between 1960 and 1968, he became part of the GRAV, Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel [Experimental Visual Arts Research Group], which, in turn, participated in the Nouvelle Tendence [New Tendency] international movement. He later continued his visual research and production within the kinetic art movement. On many occasions, his positions on various issues from the point of view of a Latin American artist were accounted for. This is a document written in October 1975, by Julio Le Parc, Alejandro Marcos, Gontran Netto Guanaes, José Balmes, Guillermo Nuñez, Vittorio Basaglia, Davide Boriani, Vincenzo Eulisse, Romano Perusini, Joop Van Meel, and José Gamarra, who met at the central pavilion of the Venice Biennial. This source has been chosen because it documents the artists’ concern regarding the advances of Fascism under the dictatorship of Generalissimo Francisco Franco (1939–75) in Spain and of the Chilean Augusto Pinochet, who overthrew Salvador Allende in a coup d’état on September 11, 1973.
