Gustavo Germano–“A Photographic Memory: Seeing the Disappeared”

Bartolomé de las Casas Annual Lecture

Gustavo Germano will examine the use of photographs of the disappeared to reclaim truth and justice in the aftermath of the military dictatorships in Argentina (1976-1983) and Brazil (1964-1985). He will present the “antecedents” of the use of photography—both by the State organisms of control and the families of those kidnapped and murdered by the regime, who generally used the same photos emitted by the State in their campaign to find their family members. Germano will speak of his project, which seeks to give visibility to the disappeared. The Argentine photographer has personal connections to the issue, as his own brother was one of the disappeared, whose remains were found only last summer.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Clark Honors College, the Office of Academic Affairs, the Global Studies Institute, the Department of Romance Languages and the Savage Endowment’s Global Justice Program.
