Key pieces of the archival research undertaken for the pavilion proposal are presented in the form of three simultaneous videos with distinct temporalities and movement. The first one reproduces press cuttings, both from official and opposition press, making visible the inconsistencies and cracks in the story of the 1979 event. The second screen broadcasts the official version in two video reportages of the event broadcasted by the National TV station (TVN) in 1979, capturing both authorities’ and attendants’ impressions. The third video is devoted to the list of names included in the booklet, an insistence in lists and inventories that is a trademark of the modern state. Names, shantytowns, communes, accesses circulate on the screen until the goal of 37,000 new proprietors is achieved.

Three short films build close-ups that articulate the social history of the event with the city today. These focus on the personal narratives of the inhabitants of three emblematic shantytowns that were present at the event in the stadium: La Pincoya, La Bandera and Villa Francia.
Images of the propietaires’ houses, and their voices are interweaved by first-person narrations. What in the centre piece of STADIUM is a fragment with an abstract urban layout in the STADIUM piece, is rendered figurative and specific through the story.
An audiovisual description of a ‘point’ in the map of the city today, that navigates the distance between stadium and shantytowns, the city at the time of the event and current Santiago.
