Synopsis
People who have lived through authoritarian rule have stories to tell, truths that have been silenced. But how do individuals begin to speak about a political past that was too horrible for words? How is truth best voiced in a society moving out of authoritarianism? This generously illustrated volume examines the creation of stories, accounts, images, songs, street theater, paintings, and ideas that pay witness to authoritarian pasts in Nigeria, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia. This theme is explored with contributions by scholars, activists, and artists. By examining the past, they hope to teach us to avoid repeating these atrocities.
