The project revolves around a collection of discussions around the life and death of Hugo Chávez, taking place in Wikipedia. It explores the many ways in which Chávez has been represented by the media, influenced by geo-political backgrounds and economical intentions, and its many interpretations.
Wikipedia’s contributions by international writers demonstrate that Chávez’s real identity is invisible to us, and that what we believe in has been socially constructed.
The image is a combination of digital illustrations of portraits of Chávez that contributors have been editing in Wikipedia, put together in an animated GIF.
