his paper proposes a study route to track some of the epicenters of video art in Latin America, attempting a heterogeneous approach to bound different temporalities and geographies, which in that epoch meant new paradigms for the visual production of the continent. This historical review is developed through countries as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, México, y Colombia, where the particular political, cultural and social symptoms allowed the conformation of paths to be walked by video art. Finally, I propose a decanting of the processes developed from the 60's to the 90's, through three works by Colombian artists (José Alejandro Restrepo, Wilson Díaz, and Óscar Muñoz). The paper is assumed as a memory exercise towards an evanescent history just as its own materiality, and still under construction.
