A Chilean mural has recently been uncovered in the Leeds University Union (LUU) building.

Created in 1976, the mural is the work of a group of Chilean refugees who came to Leeds to flee the dictatorship of the Pinochet regime. It was originally painted on a student common room wall, and later hidden behind a temporary kitchen.

In partnership with LUU, members of the Chilean community in Yorkshire, MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies students from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies are organizing an exhibition this term to recall the mural and its past.

The exhibition is part of a wider project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund which will oversee the restoration of the mural, and will be accompanied by a series of events.

The students’ exhibition will feature the real voices of Chileans who experienced first hand the military dictatorship at the time of the mural’s creation.

As part of the project, the students are also looking for anyone who remembers the mural in its earlier days, before it was covered up, to share their story.

Ana’s husband was taken by security forces and became one of the disappeared; she lives a life between reality and fantasy which he inhabits with her. Pedro was arrested in 1973 and taken to a concentration camp in the north of Chile; his journey to retrace his past and face his demons takes him back to the place, where he was incarcerated. Miguel came as a young boy with his parents; he reconnects with his roots as an adult and questions his identity as he struggles between his adopted country and the place of his birth. This is a powerful representation of a deeply moving story that takes you on a journey of struggle, hope, fear and determination, highlighting critical moments that changed a nation.

Written by Francisco Carrasco; this new theatre piece incorporates theatre, storytelling, live music, movement and multi-media as well as songs from the Chilean popular song movement of the time.
