Genozide

“To write poetry after Auschwitz is an act of barbarity.”
– Theodor Adorno.

Banners hang from the windows of my studio, in which I lived for three months during my residence at the Kuntlerhause Bethanien in Berlin. The messages on the banners say:

“Escribir poesía después del genocidio es un acto de barbarie” — “En Guatemala también hubo genocidio”
“Hacer arte después del genocidio es un acto de barbarie” — “En Guatemala también hubo genocidio”

(“To write poetry after the genocide is an act of barbarity” — “In Guatemala there was also a genocide”
“To make art after the genocide is an act of barbarity” — “In Guatemala there was also a genocide”)
