The subjective, the collective, the autobiographical. Audiovisuals in Chile during the dictatorship

Isabel García

November 4 - 5, 2011 - 7:30 p.m. /
Sabatini Building, Auditorium

The subversive practices taking place in an artistic scene fractured by the repression and censorship of Pinochet's military dictatorship use the newly-arrived video camera, with its singular ability to record and document reality, as a medium that permits the mimesis of international practices, albeit contorted into new aesthetic and symbolic forms.

The reactivation of the collective memory in works that multiply and spread through the social body, television programs other than the official, censored ones, co-exist and are tautened in Santiago's artistic circles, with audiovisuals serving as a medium of circulation, experimentation and reflection during the 1970s and 1980s in Chile.

The video-essay reflects autobiography, identity and collective memory with traces of orality – in the correspondence on audio tapes between friends and family living in exile, thus providing new narrative and audiovisual possibilities for collaboration between artists.
