Chile from within: Book of documentary photography remembers bloody coup
The eBook contains a rich array of features.
LONDON.- September 11th, 2013, marks the 40th anniversary of the bloody coup led by Augusto Pinochet in 1973, overthrowing Chile’s democratically elected socialist President Salvador Allende. On this anniversary MAPP is publishing a digital translation of Chile from within, a book of documentary photography by Chilean photographers, originally edited with Susan Meiselas, including texts by Ariel Dorfman and Marco de la Parra (first published in paper form in 1991). The book chronicles the country’s regression into a place of fear, exile and visceral silence, beginning with the methodical torture and murder of Allende’s supporters. The Chilean photographers worked for underground newspapers and magazines, putting their lives on the line daily to record the brutality of the “Pinochet Years”. The ebook culminates with the plebiscite of 1988 which ultimately ended Pinochet’s dictatorship, with tributes to those affected by an era that resulted in the death of over 3,000 people and the torture of around 30,000.

The eBook contains a rich array of features, including:

• A detailed chronology of events in Chile between 1972 and1982.

• Texts and Poetry by Ariel Dorfman and Pablo Neruda.

• Declassified CIA documents regarding the coup.

• Archival material from the Memory and Human Rights Museum in Santiago, Chile.

• For the first time, a series of bilingual stories (Spanish and English) about the photographs.

• Spanish language audio and video content, including the last words of Salvador Allende and clips from the film “City of Photographers” by Sebastián Moreno.

• Behind the scenes conversations between artists such as Alejandro Hoppe, Marcelo Montecino, Alvaro Hoppe, Paz Errazuriz, Hector Lopez, Helen Hughes and Claudio Perez.

These images had to be taken by people who lived in Chile, from within, developed within the deafening din of an unending time... These images are confessional, suicidal; it hurt to take them. I will confront the pain, says the artist, I will dream what my people, what I myself do not dare to dream. In spite of themselves, these photographers took pictures, sometimes not knowing of what. Later in the darkroom, in the exhibition gallery, with the passage of time, they discovered what they had made. The photos will never stop developing. - Marco Antonio de la Parra
