i made this series of pictures at universidad arcis where i completed my BA studies. for the past year (or more) the university has been in a major financial crisis. it was all over the news because the academics and other employees where not being paid for over six months due to internal financial problems. universidad arcis was founded in 1982 during the military regime with a strong focus on social and political issues striving in its students the ability to think critically. this university has by no doubt outstanding teachers at least on the area of art but because of its poor management of money and other issues its future is uncertain. you can see the frustration of the students embodied in the deterioration and disrepair of the house of studies. in chile the education is not free and most of the students have to get into debt for big amounts of money to be able to study.
