New York based artists Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani discuss their ongoing collaborative project Index of the Disappeared with Yesomi Umolu, Logan Center Exhibitions Curator. Index of the Disappeared is a collaboration between Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani, ongoing since 2004. The Index is both a physical archive of post-9/11 disappearances – detentions, deportations, renditions, redactions – and a platform for public dialogue around related issues. The Index also produces visual and poetic interventions that circulate fragments of the archive into the wider world.

Presented with Logan Center Exhibitions and the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry
