This dissertation presents as analysis corpus the works published in 2009 by the Argentinian authors Sergio Bizzio, Realidad, and Carlos Busqued, Bajo este sol tremendo. The aim of this study is to make a critical reading of how television and certain television formats (the reality show and documentary) have structure and plot conformed by these literary narratives. In those works, archives are assembled up and taken to pieces, opened and articulated, among military official photographs and spectacular banal confessions, involving, in the narrators work, an ethical and aesthetic, critical and creative commitment, in sharing a story full of details (although full of loopholes) with the reader/viewer. On account of a metonymic role between the visible and non-visible, the exploitation and the camouflage, the image of violence and the violent image, any similarity with historical facts, real images and fictional materials or characters is not a simple coincidence, it is a central matter of some contemporary Latin American art practices, such as Bizzio and Busqued.
