“The story of a group of Milton Friedman’s disciples that, backed by a military dictatorship, turned Chile into the first and most extreme neoliberal country in the world. Unseen images and testimonies build this powerful documentary, that allows us to understand the historic process that transformed the Chilean people and Chile into the country that it is today; an image of success and discontent.”

It is a contested Space and it represents a contact zone, a space of unlearning, formulating identity constructs, norm-critical consciousness and critical thinking. Impossible Forms are those that erase and facilitate the process of transgressing the boundaries/borders between art, politics, practice, theory, the artist and the spectator. For 2019-2020, Museum of Impossible Forms operates under the curatorial theme of ‘The Atlas of Lost Beliefs (For Insurgents, Citizens and Untitled Bodies)’.
