The footsteps of poet Raúl Zurita were tracked, compiled and digitalized by Carolina Zúñiga and Carolina Gainza, academics from the UDP Communication and Letters Faculty. They were searching for the trail Zurita’s life has left on public access archives. Birth and death records of relatives. Annotations and grades on school books. The blueprint of his house on the building department of the municipality. A book’s registry on the Intellectual Property Rights Office. And more.
Proyecto Raúl Zurita: documentos públicos de la vida privada exhibits photos, paper clippings and documents obtained from 15 state and educational archives. The exhibition also includes QR codes and screens to access interviews. This exhibition is the fruit of a multimedia investigation that also includes a website: documentospublicos.cl.
