I cannot go into the details of her analysis. The industrial analogy is not intended to be frivolous. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood. In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids.
How do we analyse those phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture? As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups. Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the narrative is equally important.
The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women.
Let me mention one example of an analysis into which gender might have appropriately been introduced. Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cultural innovation’.
Francis Barkeretal Canclimi, Essex, vol. Perhaps the central theme of cultural policies today is how to build societies with democratic projects shared by everybody without making everyone the same, societies in which dispersal is transformed into diversity and the inequalities between classes, ethnic and other groups are reduced to differences’.
This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity.
What then is the stake in ‘hybridity’?

The trouble with the old term mestizaje cultuars that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. Jean Franco Publicado en: Hybridity-as-difference is too indiscriminate to ac-count for both the vernaculars of global culture and the anomalies that canclinni cause dissent within the happy family.
But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private. Not only are indigenous groups made to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ but they are also represented as traditional.

The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the reproduction of a market scene that is just behind the Sun Stone. Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: What is distinctive about Latin America now.
This representation culturad the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’. One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, apparently tending an open fire.
Beside her are two baskets filled with what looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear. Introducing gender into a discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise. Gender is not a woman’s problem but an essential category of analysis.
The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the title seems awkward. In Latin America, the staging of difference is perfectly compatible with integration into the global system.
And not only must he make notes hibridax he must also make sense: Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection. Let me simply quote the sentence that concludes her discussion of this statue: When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Woman and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally private life which feminists have made a matter of public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.
How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question? The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book.

This is evident from a photograph of the interior of the ethnology room of the Museum which shows a group of life-size figures representing an indigenous family But it is only the latter that undo the power of the centre.
Finally the big question: The subjectivities constituted in this new world order are gendered and mobile. His Culturas populares en el capitalismo cultruas a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not as survivals or degenerate remnants of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations to the market, to national culture and to local history.
The archaeological exhibition is on the ground floor and represents the past.
How do we study modernity? On the second gibridas the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by life size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous.
The book found a way out of the false dichotomies of tradition or modernity, artisan culturws or art. While there is nothing particularly startling in this observation, gendering is surely significant in this representation since it is the family that can best demonstrate the official view of the unchanging continuity of private life between the remote past and the present.
Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study points out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the exhibition of animals to that of hjbridas humans.
