Cartographies of Memory: Images and Politics

Individual stories articulate collective realities, taking the private photographic and audiovisual archives belonging to the families of militants in the Movimiento político-militar (M19) and of two political movements (A Luchar and Unión Patriótica) and other social movements based in different parts of Colombia. These family members are part of the Movement of Sons and Daughters for Memory and Against Impunity.


Manuel Chacón began his academic studies in Sociology at the Universidad de la Habana before returning to Colombia to devote his energies to cultural activism. In addition, through his music, Manuel Chacón has worked with young people in different organizations.

Sandy Morales received her professional training in Social Sciences. The field of Political Science has allowed her to locate the coordinates of power in which reality is constructed.
