la panel blanca

We found an old white van with similar characteristics to the one that belonged to the Guatemalan Government and that was used to kidnap and disappear people during the darkest years of the war in Guatemala. We renovate it, and display it.

The van was exposed for one month, and each afternoon at five o’clock it was activated with poets, artists, and interested people that gathered around to intervene it or to read poetry and tell stories of those dark years.

Project completed in conjunction with Juan Esteban Calderón.

(Commissioned and produced as part of the “Jornadas de la Memoria” in honor of the disappeared writer, Luis de Lion. Cooperación Española, Antigua Guatemala. Guatemala 2018)
