From Argentina to Cambodia, Picturing the Disappeared

In this week’s issue, Francisco Goldman writes about the forced disappearance of as many as thirty thousand people by the military junta that ruled Argentina between 1976 and 1983. Artists from across South America have created powerful bodies of work that reflect on these atrocities, which happened throughout the Southern Cone during this era of military dictatorship: citizens were kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by the thousands by their own militaries, and their families were left with no knowledge of their fates.
