Punto de Vista


Punto de Vista was an Argentine literary journal founded in 1978 during the height of the military regime headed by General Jorge Videla. Taking advantage of the slight lessening of censorship after Argentina's 1978 FIFA World Cup soccer victory, the journal, whose contributors were pseudonymous, focused on art and politics, stressing culture over ideology both because it was safer to do so under the extant political conditions, and because its editors were becoming disillusioned with orthodox Marxism.
