Chilean Protest Murals

Public art has a long tradition of serving groups and individuals seeking to offer artistic protest and dissent. During the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet in Chile, hundreds of protest murals were created. Photographer Andres Romero Spethman worked alongside muralist brigades representing political parties such as the Partido Socialista and the Izquierda Cristiana. This digital archive from Harvard University brings together images of these murals, which were created in and around Santiago between 1983 and 1990. Some of the common images here include the Moneda Palace in flames, the deposed president Salvador Allende, and the martyred musician Victor Jara.
