The Victimes of Guantanamo Bay (Memorial)
41.34 x 283.46 inches
The Victimes of Guantanamo Bay (Memorial) is a set of steel plates dedicated to the prisoners at the American base in Guantanamo, Cuba. The form of the work is based on that of the monument to the victims of the 9/11 attacks; but the names engraved on the plates in alphabetical order are those of the 759 people who were (or still are) detained at Guantanamo. Following the recourse made by Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act, the American Department of Defense was required to publish a full list of the prisoners.
