Leandro Manuel NUÑEZ [Argentina]


An interactive installation in which the faces of missing persons from Argentina’s military dictatorship era are projected onto confetti when it is thrown into the air by the viewer. Confetti is a symbol of the World Cup held in 1978. The work suggests that the soccer event was used as a means to conceal the state terrorism by the dictatorship born out of the military coup of 1976.
