    Children of the Mapocho: Street Children in Chile.”

    Despite the guarantees stemming from the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, children of different social classes in Chile are accorded differential protection by the State and society. This presentation uses two cases of police violence in Santiago de Chile in 2001 – a political protest demonstration by high-school students and a raid on a makeshift shelter used by street children accused of kidnapping – to highlight these discrepancies. Both cases received wide media attention, however, the representations of the children involved were not the same. Whereas the students received the support of the media and the public for their political action, the street children were portrayed as criminals. The differences suggest that perceived social status determined the value assigned by society to the two categories of children and consequently the rights and protections they enjoy. In the process, the street children are being turned into second-class citizens.


    Refreshments will be provided.

    How a Cerebral Hemorrhage Altered My Art – A Lecture by Katherine Sherwood

    Berkeley-based artist Katherine Sherwood talks about the ways in which art, medicine, and disability intersect in her mixed-media paintings. Her works juxtapose abstract medical images, such as cerebral angiograms of the artist’s brain, with fluid renderings of ancient patterns, thereby exploring and revealing the strange nature of our time and current visual culture.

    This lecture is co-sponsored by the de Saisset Museum and the Department of Art and Art History.
