L’Osservatore Romano (‘The Roman Observer’) is the daily newspaper of the Vatican. It reports on world events from the point of view of the Catholic Church. For these works Ferrari took headlines from the Spanish language edition. He then added found images, many of which depict hell and punishment. Others show instruments of torture, the Argentine military and condom wrappers. Ferrari accused the Church of doing nothing to stop the murders and persecutions committed by Argentina’s military regime. These works compare this silence to the violence of its traditional belief in eternal punishment.

León Ferrari, [no title]  1976–7, enlarged version 2007

In 1976 a military dictatorship seized power in Argentina. Opponents of the regime were arrested. Others ‘disappeared’ – secretly murdered or imprisoned without any legal process. Ferrari collected newspaper articles about the unidentified bodies that appeared in Buenos Aires. He saw them as evidence of the acts of violence carried out by the government. He wanted to challenge people who claimed that they didn’t know what was happening. Eventually Ferrari had to leave the country for fear of persecution. He published his clippings in a book, and would distribute them as photocopies through the post.
