Opening Saturday, January 8th, from 11AM - 1PM
Ahead of the exhibition Remaking the Exceptional: Tea, Torture, and Reparations | Chicago to Guantánamo opening to the public on March 10, 2022, DePaul Art Museum hosts an online panel conversation which will observe 20 years of Guantánamo as an extra-legal prison and the 7 years since the passage of the Jon Burge reparations ordinance, the first and only of its kind in the United States. Panelists included are Aislinn Pulley (Chicago Torture Justice Center), Kilroy Watkins (Chicago Torture Survivor), Mansoor Adayfi (Guantánamo Torture Survivor and author of Don’t Forget Us Here), and moderated by Joey L. Mogul (People’s Law Office). Curators and artists of the exhibition Aaron Hughes and Amber Ginsburg will introduce this panel, a speculative reparations bill as an advocacy tool in anticipation of U.S. recognition of harm, and a fund for Guantánamo survivors.
Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with DePaul’s Law Library. This program is generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
