Transmigraciones y desaparición del trabajo en dos novelas latinoamericanas recientes
This essay questions two novels - Leñador o las ruinas continentales (2013) from the north American-Argentinian and Chilean writer Mike Wilson and La transmigración de los cuerpos (2013) from the Mexican Yuri Herrera – that explore border or almost erased areas of the work in the contemporary societies, what we could call its last occurrence grade (or fading), as well as the mutations those changes push on the social, economic and vital imagination field. On one hand, the work resources appear as a service, a paradigm of the new millennium in terms of production of immateriality/production of meanings. On the other hand, those narrations also tell about the handicraft work and the gaze as escape ways from the systematic colonization of the individual experience. Moreover, both novels reconsiders and tests the artistic work logics in current times.
