She arrived at Proyecto´ace to carry out a micro-residence where he returned to focus on his Dignidad project. Working from photographs of the installation of said project and of the telephone documents, Dignidad will receive an artist’s book format.

Dignidad is 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).

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located.
