Marco Guagnelli: Did we listen?

Did we listen?

Using the EZLN communiqué “Did you listen?” as a point of departure, as well as the memory of the thousands who have disappeared in Mexico as a result of violence, this action evokes a burial. Nature is present only in the omission of bodies. Beneath the soil we hear a whisper—messages from those we cannot hear or those lost in our collective memory.
