Synopsis

This article reflects on the creation of the Colectivo de Acciones de Arte (C.A.D.A.) [Art Action Collective] 20 years earlier, the political and social conditions at that time and the prevailing conditions today. The text also refers to other artists of the period, including Luz Donoso, Carlos Leppe, Eugenio Dittborn, and Francisco Brugnoli.

Annotations

The Revista de Crítica Cultural [Cultural Criticism Review] creates a file dedicated to 20 years of C.A.D.A., with writings by Nelly Richard, Diamela Eltit and Fernando Balcells.

The writer, Diamela Eltit, was a member of C.A.D.A. Along with the visual artists Juan Castillo and Lotty Rosenfeld, the sociologist Fernando Balcells and the poet, Raúl Zurita, the group carried out mass actions to denounce the sociopolitical conditions that prevailed in Chile from 1979 to 1985.
