SOÑANDO (EN LA BOCA DE LA BESTIA) / DREAMING (IN THE MOUTH OF THE BEAST)

A public video installation and documentary film about seven children who died while in custody after being separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border as a result of the 2017 Trump administration US-Mexico border family separation policy. 

 

The artwork will be publicly and simultaneously installed in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington DC, San Ysidro (California), El Paso (Texas), San Salvador (El Salvador) and Guatemala City (Guatemala) for one calendar year beginning in 2022. The work will be accompanied by a web installation of the artwork with an online petition to the United Nations. The petition will ask that a named group of US members of Congress who either actively promoted the Trump family separation policy or failed to act against the policy be called to justice by the UN International Court of Justice in the Hague in order to bring criminal human rights charges against those individuals.
