About the Museum
The Museum of Memory and Human Rights seeks to draw attention to human rights violations committed by the Chilean state between 1973 and 1990. Its mission is to allow dignity for victims and their families, stimulate reflection and debate and to promote respect and tolerance in order that these events never happen again.
Through objects, documents and archives presented in different settings and formats, as well as a innovative sight and sound presentation, it is possible to learn part of this history: the military coup, the repression that took place in the following years, the resistance movement, exile, international solidarity, reparation policies.
The Museum of Memory and Human Rights is a dynamic and interactive space that rescues Chile’s recent history and recovers truth, which grows and reflects itself in a culture of respect for the dignity of individuals. This itinerant version of the Chilean Memory Museum and Human Rights offers Montreal-based visitors a taste of the larger exhibition and insight into recent Chilean history, as well as bridge this history with the 8,000 members of the Chilean community here in Québec.
Supported by the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Chile, the Chilean Government, the Chilean Community of Montreal and part of a collaborative FQRSC- funded Interdisciplinary Curatorial Research Initiative: Thinking through exhibition research and praxis: New methodologies for public cultural dialogue and engagement and the LatinArte Festival http://www.latinarte.ca/
