Performance ‘Dignidad’

As part of the opening of the exhibition ‘Dignidad’. Artists’ books by María Verónica San Martín in Museum Meermanno, the KABK hosts the performance ‘Dignidad’ followed by a discussion on Friday 20 September 2019.

The work of the multidisciplinary Chilean (book) artist María Verónica San Martín shows a passionate involvement with the recent political past of her native country Chile. The years of the dictatorship of Pinochet (1973-1990) and its long lasting effects on present day society play a prominent role in her work.
