A Book of Questions

In the early 1990's, Haitian and Cuban refugees were detained in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba under the supervision of the American military. A Book of Questions, is comprised of queries directed toward three groups of people (Haitian detainees, Cuban detainees and GTMO employees, including soldiers, physicians and social workers) whose paths intersected during a specific moment in GTMO's history. It is a gesture of memory and reconciliation, to remember together. The questions were written in Spanish by Aurora De Armendi and translated into Haitian Creole and English
