An informative introduction to the Steampunk culture in Latin America.

Presented by Captain Quaestor

A fascinating dialogue regarding Steampunk in Latin American countries. In Spanish-speaking countries, such as Mexico, Argentina, or Chile, the subgenre has become very popular, and there are great writers and artists who have enriched it with their literary and artistic contributions. Latin American steampunks have a unique take on 19th century aesthetics and vision that’s rooted in Hispanic culture, and a time in which many of the Spanish colonies were rebelling against the Spanish Empire and seeking their independence.
