The night of 14 November 2019, during the Latin Grammy’s red carpet, Chilean singer Mon Laferte stopped walking, faced the photographers and silently uncovered her chest. While millions of Chileans marched in the streets of her country in the biggest social uprising since the return of democracy, Laferte decided it was time to show her discontent with the police brutality happening back home and showed a message written in Spanish on her chest: “In Chile they torture, rape and kill”.
A few hours later – and after having won best alternative album for Norma – she posted the red-carpet image along with the text “My free body for a free country”. By now, her picture and message were all over the social media and made the headlines of all major news outlets around the world (The Guardian 2019, Billboard 2019).
This paper attempts to outline a qualitative content analysis of the extent Mon Laferte’s appearance in the Grammy’s red-carpet helped visualise the social uprising taken place in Chile at a global scale.Assignment-3-Textualcritical-analysis-CORREGIDO
