BEAUDOIN DUQUETTE, Alexandre. Disarming the Stereotyped Border from the Contextual Art of a Colombian Woman in Quebec. Alteridades [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.56, pp.35-46. ISSN 2448-850X.

This paper explores the possibilities of disarming the Canadian migratory propaganda from the perspective of Constanza Camelo Suárez, a Colombian visual artist living in the province of Quebec. To this effect, a counterpoint between two discourses is created (one from the State and the other from an artist), in which the incompatibilities between them are analyzed. This counterpoint is about two concepts: a stereotyped border (fixed, immobile and closed; an obstacle to knowledge) and a dissonant border (flexible, mobile and open; a necessary step towards knowledge).

Keywords : mobilities; stereotypes; dissonance; diasporas; Canada; migration; multiculturalism.
