Memories of Resistance: A Digital Archive of Chile’s Graphic Resistance

From 1977 to the present, the Tallersol Cultural Centre’s graphic arts workshop created a rich collection of posters and printed works in support of the resistance movement in Chile against the local dictatorship. This project aims to document these cultural materials.

The Tallersol Cultural Centre in Chile, in collaboration with the University of Liverpool, will catalogue their graphic design archive of posters, bulletins, postcards, leaflets, and pamphlets for human-rights, political, social and cultural organizations. The center was created in 1977 by a collective of artists, cultural activists, and political opponents to military repression. The archive itself represents the artistic resistance movement that took place throughout the late 20th century.
