El Cerebro (The Brain) is the first translation into Spanish of “Le Cerveau”, a book by Deisler originally published in France in 1975 by Nouvelles éditions polaires, the poet Julien Blaine’s publishing house. While its publication was postponed due to the coup d’état in Chile, the story in “El Cerebro” fuses the consequences of the artist’s imprisonment by the military dictatorship and his subsequent exile in Europe. The pages in this book contain assorted visual poems in which the author reflects on “the image of consumption” through particular visions that repeatedly appear over the silhouette of a human head. Later, as national events unfold, the work has a more condemnatory tone for the crimes of the dictatorship and manifests a defeated spirit due to the end of the project of Unidad Popular. Nevertheless, despite the wound inflicted on a generation, the work closes with a message of hope for the future. LIMITED EDITION OF 500.
