During the 20th Century, Communist Parties in Latin America positioned themselves at the intersection between the political and the cultural spheres. At that crossing, many intellectuals and artists found a sense of purpose. This intellectual biography of the Argentine Hector Agosti covers these politicized spaces for cultural actors. A political prisoner in the 1930s, fresh out of jail he published his first book and subsequently took stances on the debates on socialist realism, art, and the role of intellectuals. Author of several books and promoter of many cultural undertakings, throughout his life Agosti cultivated the ties between intellectual work and political activism.
