La Memoria Futura – Las voces da las Abuelas
The Future Memory – The Voices of the Grandmothers

Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo (Argentina) | Luciana Mastromauro

»La Memoria Futura« makes the material of the biographical family archive of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo accessible with a site-specific performance and subsequent sound installation. After the premiere in Buenos Aires at Parque de la Memoria, the multidisciplinary team from Argentina and Germany now brings the work to Ballhaus Ost and the neighboring Cemetery Park.


Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo was founded in Argentina in 1977 by the mothers of those who disappeared during the last Argentine dictatorship. Their goal is and has been to locate all the disappeared children and return them to their rightful families. In 1999, the Abuelas founded the Biographical Family Archive for the grandchildren who had not yet found out who their mothers and fathers had been. Today, this material has become one of the largest oral archives in Latin America, consisting of documents (photographs, writings, letters) and more than 2200 interviews, 144 of which belong to the grandmothers who have left their testimony so that the transmission through generations is not interrupted.
