An endless search

A Cordovan artist began the search for his biological mother. We tell you the story of Darío Coronda, better known as “Kartu”. Shall we help him?

Stories of people

This is the search for  Darío Coronda , a Cordovan plastic artist who started a  path to truth . It was in 2010 that “Kartu”, as his friends tell him, learned from his cousin that the family that raised him was not his  biological family . He barely knew it, and with a lot of courage, he decided to face the search that would lead him to his roots.

 A journey to identities 

Dario is an  appropriate son  and, at the time, he saw the possibility that his case was  related to the dictatorship . That's why he decided to have his blood tests in La  Conadi  to see if he coincided with relatives of  disappeared persons . But it wasn't like that. His  DNA  didn't match any data from the Conadi blood bank. Taking a few further steps in his search, he came to the name  Graciela Carrizo  and the address of a pension. In addition, she came to know about her mother's profession - sex worker.

Kartu is a plastic artist, and not only uses his skills for the  reconstruction of his identity , but also for the search for many more: he collaborated with the  Mothers and  Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo  . Darío militates for identity and makes visible a struggle that is the reality of many Argentines. In this country, appropriation and trafficking in people is a fact. And the state must take over.
