IN FOCUS: Brigadas Ramona Parra
VICTOR FIGUEROA introduces the street murals of Chilean activist group the Brigadas Ramona Parra.
This art form has become well known the world over thanks to the work of the solidarity campaigns organised wherever refugees from the 1973 coup landed.
Murals began in Chile as the simple painting of slogans on walls during the election campaigns of the 1960s, but the real development of the muralist style began after 1968, when the Communist Party decided to create the Brigada Ramona Parra (BRP).
Named after a young communist killed by police in the late 1940s, the brigadas were assigned the job of countering the right-wing domination of the media.
