Resumen

MENARD, André. Modesty and Representation: Mapuche Race, Nakedness and Disguise. Aisthesis [online]. 2009, n.46, pp.15-38. ISSN 0718-7181.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812009000200002.

The following article presents a study of the functions that the notions of body, sexuality and modesty, in the representation of the Mapuche «race», has had especially since the beginning of the twentieth century. The article will, first, explore the connections between contemporary pornography and ethnographic photography. Secondly, it will extend into the places that modesty and sexuality occupy in the debates about the «true character of the Araucanian race». Finally, it will treat the relation between nakedness, costume and disguise and their relation with the question of «truth» in an ethnographical or photographic representation of race.

Palabras clave : race; modesty; mapuche; body; representation.
