María V San Martín



20.08.2019 to 23.08.2019

María Verónica is a New York-based artist working in printmaking, artists books, installation, sculpture, and performance art. 

A project in collaboration with the Association for Memory and Human Rights Colonia Dignidad, the lawyer Winfried Hempel and The National Archive of Chile.

Dignidad is an Art installation at The National Archive of Chile of the Chilean artist María Verónica San Martín based on secret telephone documents about Colonia Dignidad. Found in 2012 by the ex-colono and lawyer Winfried Hempel, the audios reveal for the first time to the public conversations between Paul Schäfer and other Nazi agents during 1978. Through sculpture, sound, performance, text, and a selection of historical archives, San Martín reveals a complex system of codes and transcontinental actions that culminated in crimes against minors and opponents of the Chilean civic-military dictatorship (1973-1990). 
The exhibition has been shown at Artists Space in NYC, The Center for Book Arts in NYC, ATA Gallery in San Francisco, it is currently up at Galeria Animal in Santiago-Chile, and will travel to the Print Center in Philadelphia and to the Museum Meermanno in The Hague, Netherlands on September 2019.
