The Momoprot was created in January 2020 to engage with the national protests that began in Chile in October 2019. It is a mobile protest module built using old paint buckets, a shopping cart, and an old bicycle. Equipped with a pirate FM radio station and a PA system, it works as a tool of collective rhythmic expression and transmission. Upcoming and pending is a construction manual to fully transform the Momoprot into an open-source design, available to everyone but fascists or their sympathizers.
Built as part of the Tsonami B.A.S.E. residency in Valparaíso, Chile.
