Main Article Content
This article presents the visual narrative constructed by Chilean visual artist María Verónica San Martín (1981) in order to address the processes of detention, torture, extermination and disappearance of persons during the military dictatorship in Chile (1973-1990) in an interesting effort to generate an image of a historic episode of unimaginable cruelty (Didi-Huberman, 2004). From an intimate perspective, the artist builds a visual language based on the horror experienced during that period, establishing an analogy between the production, the techniques and formats of the works, and the processes lived in the country due to the military repression.
