Pablo Guarin Robledo

Graduate Student


Pablo Guarín Robledo is a doctoral student in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. He holds both a B.A. and a M.A. in literature from Universidad de los Andes, Colombia. His research has mainly focused on the representation of structural and systemic violence, and on the treatment of forced disappearance in novels, photography, and cinema in contemporary Colombia. His master's thesis, dedicated to the concept of non-corpse and forced disappearance as a viral phenomenon in the narrative of Pablo Montoya and the photographic work of Jesús Abad Colorado, has been presented and discussed in different spaces, including Museo de Arte Miguel Urrutia (MAMU) in Bogota. He has also published peer-reviewed articles on Colombian literature and cinema. 

Pablo's interests in contemporary Latin American imag(inari)es around obscenity, censorship, disappearance, and spectacular violence are traversed by memory studies, film studies, new materialisms, and visual thought, as well as curatorial practice. He was part of the Galería Casas Riegner curatorial team and collaborates on a regular basis with Policroma Arte Contemporáneo as invited curator.
