Outstanding conceptual artist Eugenio Dittborn (b. Chile, 1943) was part of the avant-garde art scene of the 1970's, he was making video-art in the 1980's and since has received multiple prices and recognitions including the National Prize of Art in 2005. Dittborn has experimented with different possibilities in his graphic and printed creations using non-traditional supports. His airmail paintings are bold and personal expressions of the ephemeron condition of art, the psychology of the observer and the topics that he can fit into one work. The present anthological edition comprises his airmail paintings, pieces that belong to the collections of the Tate Museum of London and the MOMA New York, and that have traveled between 1984 y 2008 all over the world inside envelopes (and exhibited in cities in the USA, Canada, Australia, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe). This edition includes interviews that have "allowed the author to discover and re-discover the enigmas of his own works"-P.  and 5 videos produced during the 1980's, and that belong to the early productions of Chilean art video: Lo que Vimos en la Cumbre de la Corona; 5 Bocetos Preparatorios para la Historia de la Música, La historia de la física, Satelitenis, and El Crusoe. The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition held in MAVI where some large format pieces were exhibited for the first time in Chile.
