Bolivarian Dreamwas developed by Chilean artist collective Hoffmann's House specifically for the South Project's Santiago programme in October 2006. The video compilation features a selection of 24 contemporary Latin American video artists who, in various ways, explore notions of collaboration and unification.
Bolivarian Dream takes as a reference point the utopic vision of Latin American political figure Simon Bolivar, whom aspired to foster a unified pan-America in the early 1820s. The curatorial aim was to show a broad selection of video art from the area, rather than a thematic compilation, and features work by Ivan Navarro (Chile), Pablo Helguera (Mexico), Douglas Rodrigo Rada (Bolivia), and Rolando Vargas (Colombia).
