Puerta – La Perla

Puerta - La PerlaThis door is part of an exhibit on display at “La Perla,” the infamous torture and exterminatinon center, where more  2,000 people were detained and fewer than  300 survived. The rest remain “disappeared” to this day. The Memory Center that runs the space now commissioned 37 artists from all over the country to  work with doors from the actual  center that were used during the dictatorship, with the theme of entrances and exits.

The words read, “The mental structures that impede memory can be seen as a point of departure for the destruction of being.”
