Five years ago, the North Dakota Museum of Art hosted a panel on art and human rights in order to commemorate their exhibit The Disappeared. We thought the recording was lost forever, but we found it, cleaned it up, and presenting it here.
The Disappeared is an exploration of victims of political violence in Latin America. It’s a chilling exhibit that got worldwide attention, including a review in The New York TimesT. The panel was an opportunity to explore the same themes with musicians and activists who know about violence first hand. My guests on the panel are pianist Sarah Cahill, Christian Correa, Father Jack Davis, and hip-hop musician and author, Emmanuel Jal.
Biographies of the panelists can be found here.
