This paper explores the works of art by Marcelo Pombo, Fernanda Laguna and Omar Schiliro, artists working in the Centro Cultural Rector Ricardo Rojas in Buenos Aires during the 1990’s. Their plastic operations, materials, contents and visual references are related to childhood as a political way of interfering with heteronormativity and normative fictions that regulate the artistic canon. Through these ideas, we will think of the images from the aesthetic and political rearrangements that provide queer temporalities.
