The Walls of Santiago: Social Revolution and Political Aesthetics in Contemporary Chile
Tuesday, November 28, 2023, 04:30pm

CLAS Presents: Terri Gordon-Zolov and  Eric Zolov

In the fall of 2019, Chile erupted into dramatic street protests and state violence, as civil disobedience against a subway fare hike transformed into a vast resistance movement against the political system.  The estallido social, as it came to be known, was accompanied by an estallido art√≠stico, one marked by a remarkable outpouring of creative energy: wall graphics and graffiti, performance art and protest songs, and feminist interventions. This talk, based on The Walls of Santiago: Social Revolution and Political Aesthetics in Contemporary Chile (Berghahn Books 2022), explores the relationship between aesthetics and politics, new visions of nationhood, and the battle over public space as the country struggles to chart a new constitutional future. 

Terri Gordon-Zolov is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at The New School in New York City.  Eric Zolov is Professor of Latin American History at Stony Brook University.  The authors were living in Chile in the fall of 2019 and witnessed the social uprising firsthand.  The Walls of Santiago is based on their photographs of street art as well as in-depth interviews with artists and collectives.
