Host Institution

Santiago, Chile

June 26 – August 4, 2023


Based in Santiago at the Universidad Diego Portales, this seminar explores the connections between Chilean art and politics since the military coup of 1973 against President Salvador Allende, focusing on responses to censorship and repression by visual artists, filmmakers, performers, writers, and collectives, and considers the complex negotiations of the later democratic transition, the contemporary Chilean art and literary scenes, the implementation of neoliberalism, the feminist turn, the rise of recent political movements and the creation of a new constitution. Local excursions include urban public spaces used by artists as well as public and private art collections, library archives, film institutes, galleries and local museums. Students will have the opportunity to attend international symposia and other events that will mark the 50th anniversary of the military coup.
