Chile: Impressions of a Dictatorship
Finissage: Impressions of a Dictatorship by José Giribas
and
Chile Ayer-Hoy by Federico Zukerfeld and Loreto Garín Guzmán, and a conversation with the Argentinian and Chilean artists.

The graphic installation by the Argentinian-Chilean artist couple Federico Zukerfeld and Loreto Garín Guzmán from the group Etcetera is based on the fascist propaganda book "Chile Yesterday Today", which was published in 1975 under the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. The two artists will speak about their work and their artistic self-concept, particularly with regard to the philosophy of their artistic interventions. As coordinators of the group Etcetera, they have worked closely with the Argentinian human rights organization H.I.J.O.S. and developed the so-called “escraches” – acts of public denunciation as a form of social justice, which should not be left to the judiciary.
