EL SIGLO. MILITARIES BETRAY THE COUNTRY (2012)

one of a kind  /The New York Public Library

El Siglo. Militaries Betray the Country is an altered book that shows the date of September 11 at two different times of the political history of Chile. The first moment refers to the coup executed by Augusto Pinochet in 1973, and the second to what happened in the months of September 2010 when eleven miners were rescued after a landslide in the north of Chile. Both newspapers Embassy of Chile News and El Siglo. Militaries betray the Country, are design by Maria Verónica San Martin. The first one is a real newspaper and the second one is fictitious and was printed over the real newspaper and vellum paper with screen print.
