This paper discusses the visuality processes in Latin America since the I called «decolonial turn» approach. It analyzes the structural relationship between visual practices and global power arising in the context of the modern world system. It seeks to study the relationship between visual technologies, discourses and practices and the analytics of the coloniality of power, knowledge and being. It addresses the different types of hierarchies produced through a visual dispositive in the context of the international division of technology labor, the racialization of the population, and the global economy of images.

Keywords : Visuality; Cinema; Arts; Coloniality; Geopolitics.
