Abstract: Dentro del horizonte teórico-político de las visibilidades LGBT entendidas como articulaciones complejas entre dos campos socio-semióticos – el de los discursos sociales y el campo visual del cine argentino – este trabajo se concentra en analizar el segundo de ellos a partir de un corpus de filmes de contenido LGBT producidos entre 1960 y 1991. El artículo parte de una discusión sobre la significancia del estudio de los regímenes de visibilidad –en tanto que perspectiva de análisis privilegiada en diálogo con el enfoque semiótico– en los estudios visuales sobre sexualidades, para luego analizar las performatividades queer como prácticas ambivalentes de espacialización y visibilización de las identidades LGBT en dos períodos del cine argentino: los años ’60 y ‘70, y la post-dictadura. Within the theoretical-political horizon of LGBT visibilities understood as complex articulations between two socio-semiotic fields – namely, that of social discourse and the visual-discursive field of Argentine cinema – this paper focuses on the latter through an analysis of a corpus of films with explicit LGBT content, produced between 1960 and 1991. Firstly, it discusses the significance, in the area of Visual Studies, of studying regimes of sight as a privileged analytic perspective in complementary dialogue with the semiotic approach. Then, it analyses queer performativities in two periods of Argentine cinema – the sixties and seventies, and the post-dictatorship – as ambivalent practices of spatialization and of rendering visible LGBT identities.
