Focusing on the memory sites, we aim to reflect on their narratives and the possibilities of transmission to the generations that have not had a direct experience of those years. Faced with this problem, different memory sites have proposed various strategies and initiatives that invite critical reflection on the recent past from sensitive registers. Can art in the sites of memory contribute to the elaboration of critical memories that facilitate the approach of new generations to these traumatic pasts? With the intention of encouraging dialogue within the framework of the arduous processing of such difficult social situations, in this article we will approach work experiences from and through different artistic expressions in two memory sites of the City of Buenos Aires: the Posters Project from Parque de la Memoria ?Monumento a las Víctimas del Terrorismo de Estado (Memory Park - Monument to the Victims of State Terrorism) and the use of poetry in the guided visits to the Memory Site at "El Olimpo", former Clandestine Detention Center for Torture and Extermination.
