The Chilean Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale brings together works by outstanding Chilean artists Paz Errázuriz and Lotty Rosenfeld.Both artists are recognized for their intense labor since the eighties during the dictatorship period, in which they were noted for their active political work and constant criticism through different artistic expressions.Their work contain critical thoughts about domination, subordination and genre categorizations, as well as an analysis of the historical development of Chile,from dictatorship period to what has been termed post-transition. Paz Errázuriz has addressed many social issues, mainly through photographs in black and white, while Lotty Rosenfeld has been characterized by developing interventions in public space as part of the Group CADA (Collective Actions of Art) whose production is associated in Chile to the movement called “escena de avanzada”.This book/ catalogue contains an extensive essay by Nelly Richard, editor in charge, and two suggestive analysis by Diamela Eltit and Andrea Giunta, both deeply knowledgeable of the Latin American art scene
