Sites such as Clandestine Detention Centers and other places of historical importance during the last dictatorship are surveyed by the Topography of Memory program. With the information and materials gathered and systematized, it develops documentary records such as reconstructions of buildings through drawings, volumetric representations, models and animations.
From mid-2000 different tools developed were incorporated into the process of prosecuting the crimes of the dictatorship. At the request of various oral courts or investigative judges in different parts of the country we produce three types of tools: Audiovisual Judiciary Registries, Comprehensive Architectural Representations and Audiovisual Representations of the Territory.
In addition, professionals working in this area act as expert witnesses in trials. In this role, they coordinate actions towards the exposure and visibility of these buildings structures for identification and supervise the work of geologists, geophysicists and archaeologists for further processing photographic and architectural documentation.
Topography of Memory also promotes debates and participates in the development of creative and expressive proposals that make “visible” these sites used by repression. It identifies and targets, along with local partners, Clandestine Detention Centers in Argentine territory and contributes to the recovery processes of these places to become memory sites. It also accompanies tribute initiatives.
