Maoist terrorist organization Sendero Luminoso used to terrorize Peru in the 1980s. Sendero Luminoso occupied the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, in Lima, with the goal of subverting the existing national order. The Pavilion exhibits what’s left of billboards that artist Herbert Rodriguez (b. 1957) designed for the university in those years as a counterpoint to Sendero Luminoso’s murals. By confronting them on the same terrain, Rodriguez’s collages became the expression of a rival movement, that while refusing explicit political connotations, it fought peacefully to contrast the escalation of violence.
