Torture as the Negation of the Other

Panel Discussion

March 15, 2012

Event Description

Chile’s Museum of Memory will display paintings and drawings from Fernando Botero’s Abu Ghraib series between March 15 and June 24, 2012. The Center for Latin American Studies was a key facilitator of the exhibit, and is pleased to announce that the panel discussion inaugurating the exhibit will be made available on our website. The panel features Chilean notables and Berkeley faculty who will discuss Botero’s work in the context of the history of human rights in Chile specifically, and in Latin America and the broader world more generally.
