Hear presentations and a panel discussion exploring how art, life and politics merged around the 1973 coup d’etat in Chile

This panel discussion is organised in conjunction with a new display at Tate Modern. The display considers how art, life and politics merged around the 1973 coup d’etat in Chile, and the ways in which art has been used as a form of protest. The panelists include artists, scholars and other cultural figures who will discuss this pivotal period and its influence on art and culture, drawing on histories of transnational solidarity networks that were formed around the world. These include the Arts Festival for Democracy in Chile at the Royal College of Art in 1974.

The panel discussion will be followed by a screening of a chapter from Patricio Guzmán’s seminal film The Battle of Chile, chronicling the events of the military takeover in 1973.
