El entre-nos de la cultura. Condiciones estructurales y producciones simbolicas en la escena cultural independiente de la ciudad de Buenos Aires (2008-2013)

My Master´s degree research deals with a segment of Buenos Aires´cultural life: the so-called "independent scene". This name refers to a densely-packed group of producers, artists and audiences, based around a couple of venues (cultural centres or clubs), located outside the established public-funded and the private, market-driven circuit of the arts and culture.

Born from the ashes of Cromañón, these venues are generally very small and they offer a wide, inter-disciplinary artistic agenda: drama, visual arts, live music, and so on. Furthemore, they always have a bar, and it´s from this activity that they get most of their income, since they are self-managed. Another reason why they can keep their doors open is because a lot of the producers work for little or no pay at all.

How are the structural conditions of this scene and the artistic and cultural productions that take place there related? Based on both quantitative and qualitative fieldwork, I examine the producers, the audiences and the artists of the independent scene in order ti grasp how it developed historically, where its potential lies and from which side, if that is the case, its limits will arrive.
