Chile project | Carlos Soto Román
Chile Project is a publication composed by a black envelope containing loose sheets with intervened reproductions of documents declassified by the CIA during the year 2000 in relation to the US intervention in support of Pinochet’s coup d’état.
The author in this case does not try to unveil what has been crossed out, he intensifies or exacerbates that censorship instead and therefore makes the level of silencing impliedby this declassification more obvious and absurd, exposing the machinery of the bureaucratic and impersonal language behind this terrible historical facts.
