Chilenas – Drinnen und Draußen
Chilenas – Inside and outside
The catalogue for the nGbK exhibition of the same name at Kunstamt Kreuzberg presents 45 women artists from Chile who have addressed the theme of censorship and exile, and who live either in Chile or in various European countries, making works on paper, paintings, photographs, objects, videos, and installations. Research for the show began at the Chilean Cultural Center in Berlin, where a working group was formed to find out how women artists had processed a decade of military dictatorship in their works. The catalogue looks at the history of Chilean painting and the role of women, before focusing in on the issues of censorship and exile. Each of the artists—including Patricia Mora, Lotty Rosenfeld, Alma Martinoya, and Margarita Pellegrini—is presented on a double spread with a biography, text, and illustration, juxtaposing work made in Chile with that of exiled artists.
