Arpilleras, images created by stitching colorful fabric scraps onto a burlap backing, came to international attention during the violent period of military dictatorship in Chile (1973-1990), under the regime of General Augusto Pinochet. Created by mostly working class women, these works commemorate family members "disappeared" by the military and security forces, and depict the difficulties of everyday life under martial law. This talk will explore the history of arpilleras, their political importance, and how they act as a tool for social change.
