The nineties in Argentina. Ideology and subjectivity in the Menemist society

By Mgter. Mariana Gómez


In this work a reading of the Argentinean period is presented denominated "menemismo" from two axes: the ideology concept, starting from the contributions of Voloshinov, Althusser and Zizek and from the lacanian notion of "enjoyment". A style where the law absence, as consequence of the trasgresión of government's system, a society that doesn't find a significant anchorage easily takes place. At the same time, it is analyzed how this produces a society that doesn't find a significant to give cohesion to its symbolical and identified universe, ending to organize at themselves around of consume objets. From this place it is thinks about the consumption objects as objects fetishes starting from the categories Marxist and Freudian and concludes in that the corruption like means to exercise the government should not only be seen as an ethical topic but also, as an institutional and ideological topic
