During the first term of the government of the Frente Amplio in Uruguay.
Professor Achugar was appointed Director Nacional de Cultura, supervising
in that capacity a series of reforms and initiatives in the organization
of museums, education in art and literature, and the media. He will
speak from and about that experience--what it means to deal with culture
from the perspective of a state project of the left -- in his lecture,
whose title suggests at the same time the question of a politics of
culture and cultural policy.
