TPL & the Institute for Creative Exchange, Americas Present: Mario Bellatin and the Writing of Constant Mutation
Building on the international success of his novel Salón de Belleza, Mario Bellatin’s work has won numerous awards and has been widely translated. His work is difficult to classify. It responds to ceaseless change, to a search that goes from the establishment of a metaphor for human catastrophes – AIDS, violence, fanaticism, the errors of medical science – to the appropriation of diverse literary traditions and ultimately to his own personal transformation. His vision of art exceeds the limits of the page, generating complete works of literature.
Multi-award-winning Mexican author, Mario Bellatin shares with Salvador Alanis (Executive Director of International Creative Exchange Americas) his beginnings as a writer, his stance towards literary and artistic creation, and the journey that has led him to be one of the most admired and discussed figures of literature in the world.
