A Project of Juan Manuel Echavarría

Summary of Exhibition

The 17 paintings included in this exhibition were created by men and women who participated in Colombia’s war.

Further Information about the Exhibition

All 35 participants were rank and file soldiers demobilized either under the Ley de Justicia y Paz (Justice and Peace Law), or because they deserted or were wounded in combat.

They spent two years painting their personal experiences, illustrating the rural tragedy; witnessing the involvement of drug traffickers, capturing the painful repertoire of violence in Colombia, which for years has played out alongside daily life, blending in with normality.

Curator: Ana Tiscornia
