Letters of Friendship, Cartas de Amistad- Espacios revelados, Curated by Maria José Cifuentes
At the beginning of the 1970s there was a program of international mail called “Letters of Friendship.” The idea of the program was to promote peace and friendship between the children of the so-called “Socialist Block.” In this context, Ramos, of Chilean nationality, and Kamarov, Soviet, exchanged letters between 1970 and 1973, when they were 12 and 11 years old, respectively.
The work will again be featured, this time exhibiting the letters in Juan Ramos’ childhood room of the beginning of the 1970s in Yungay District.
The room will function as a sound, historical, fictional and intimate space in which the public may plunge into the fantastic story of the world at the time of the Cold War seen through the imagination of children.
