Abstract

in Chile, historical memory processes have been linked to public art practices and to making cities from their origins to today, distinguishing three main forms, each directly linked to the historical, political and social processes that the country has experienced. At the beginning of this year, we can see the statue commemorative, which constructs the moral and historical ideals of this new republic in favour of its prosperous unlethal in bronze. Republican idealisations that generate primary historical memories of European, political and aesthetically guidelines. Secondly and almost a century later, we can recognise the clear and strong influence that Mexican muralism had, as a new form of public art where the still pedagogical look was placed on the continent and its people, conveying a popular memory with the diffusion of Latin American and local ideals. Finally, with a third form of remembrance directly linked to the concept of ‘symbolic reparation’ specific to the democratic governments existing after the military dictatorship, which use public space as one of the media for the development of post-memory. Carried out through the development of the memorial monument in the urban fabric, with these projects providing the community with tangible and tangible milestones that symbolise this new democratic, equal and human rights-based society.
