Artes Gráficas Chilavert is a small print shop emblematic within Argentina’s phenomenon of worker-recuperated enterprises, or ERTs, because of its highly conflictive beginning as a coop and the subsequent militancy and social justice activism some of its workers have been involved with. Located in the economically challenged Buenos Aires barrio of Nueva Pompeya, Chilavert became an ERT in 2002, was expropriated permanently on behalf of its workers by the city of Buenos Aires in 2004, and has since opened up a thriving community cultural centre and adult bachillerato (high school equivalency) program within its workspace. Chilavert also houses the Univ. of Buenos Aires’s ERT Documentation Centre, used often by national and international researchers.
