Summary note:
This book studies the period of the Chilean political graphic art (posters, public art). The author inquires into the unexplored area between the "golden age" of the political poster during the Popular Unity and the poster produced after the 1973 coup d'état in exile. And it does so by taking the experience of two graphic collectives that until now had been left in darkness: the Association of Young Plastics APJ (1979-1987) and Tallersol (1977). In this sense, this book does more than fill a void, for "filling" already announces a fiction of totality; As we know, a field of knowledge is never completely saturated: there is always emptiness and there is full, and such dynamics is what produces possibility and future. This is well known by Nicole Cristi and Javiera Manzi, the authors of this book, who have the audacity to construct with rigor and passion a story that places and restores the artistic-political itinerary of two essential collectives of graphic action of the dictatorial period, In turn, are the tip of a much wider skein of coordinations, groupings and experiences still very little explored by historiography and local criticism. A plot of which the posters shown here - almost for the first time - are a historical and technical mark. So, this book does not come to fill, but to reopen the discussion about graph and politics, a book that also has the generosity to leave offered multiple edges to explore on the field of cultural resistance to the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
