we would like to do.
Taking as our starting point, the intolerable conditions confronting the
detainees in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, we will travel through selected locations
in the United States recording interviews and holding public discussions
on the subject. The work would be something between:
I. A research project exploring a range of perspectives on the notions
of camp & specifically Guantanamo Bay.
II. An awareness campaign bringing that research and our questions to
The form is a drive in a van (which will also be a mobile studio/billboard/library)
through various communities and cities starting in New York and concluding
in the West Coast. Stops will include Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, New
Orleans, Houston, Denver, Yellostone National Park, Seattle, Vancouver,
Tule Lake, San Francisco, Los Angeles and many stops along the way.
We will be traveling and organizing various events: public actions, small
protests, lectures, panels, interviews, discussions, talks and screenings
in relation to the issues.
We will in the mean time be archiving through video and audio recordings
many of these activities. The aim is to connect with various individuals,
groups, and communities along our journey. The public could vary from
passersby, activists, writers, artists, museum goers, campers and more;
for each situation invites its own public, and we are interested in interacting
and exchanging ideas in a variety of contexts.
1. places or people you recommend we visit on this tour: reservations,
camps, poets, survivors, individuals, groups or organizations who are
stuggling for related causes.
2. venues such as community centers, book stores, infoshops, museums,
universities, or even public spaces that would be interesting for organizing
3. any literature, readings and links relating to issues we are engaging
with in this campaign.
