Los Desaparecidos The Disappeared

Los Desaparecidos   The Disappeared
"To disappear" was newly defined during the twentieth century military dictatorships in Latin America. "Disappear" evolved into a transitive verb describing those considered threats to the State who were kidnapped, tortured, and killed by their own military,especially in the 1970s in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay.
The Disappeared brings together the work of twenty-seven living artists from South America who, over the course of the last thirty years, have made art about los desaparecidos or the disappeared.
