BOTERO AT BERKELEY: Figures in Light and Shadow


Colombian journalist and CLAS Senior Scholar Daniel Coronell interviews Fernando Botero.

The news was wonderful for both Fernando Botero and the Center for Latin American Studies. For the artist because for the first time a U.S. public institution was exhibiting his series on torture at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and for the Center, because the exhibition was the best possible occasion to invite reflection on human rights and the war in Iraq.
