‘2415017’ was the office phone number of Alfonso Reyes Echandía, the president of the Supreme Court of Colombia in 1985. With it he attends the radio journalists on the afternoon of November 6. On the radio archive we could listen the dramatic call that he made, praying for a ceasefire that was never be listened by the authorities. After his declarations on the radio stations, the Colombian government forces the press to stop the broadcasting. Instead of this, they were forced to broadcast a soccer game. This project tries to reactivate the phone lines of the antique ‘Justice Palace’ by an 80’s public telephone located on public space. The device get constant callings of people that where inside the building, between the 6 and 7 of November of 1985.
