Scenes of Listening
The Representation of Voice in María Moreno’s Chronicles
María Moreno developed, between the mid-seventies and the beginning of the eighties of the 20th century, an innovative aesthetic-journalistic proposal that seeks to inscribe her own voice in commissioned writing: she appropriates the so-called Society Section, representing other people’s voices, particularly those of celebrities. Conceiving the interview as the art of conversation, she constructs what we call ‘listening scenes’, in which she becomes an insightful chronicler of orality levels, who makes a literary use of statements by interviewees and that forces celebrities to share their notoriety.
