The Land of Open Graves: Witness and Remember Undocumented Migrants – Apr 18

Posted by Rutgers Camden on April 5, 2022

The community is invited to learn about the Undocumented Migration Project: Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94), an awareness-raising participatory art exhibition about the U.S/Mexico Border humanitarian crisis. Join anthropologist and author Jason De León for a talk and toe tag writing session.

About HT94

Handwritten toe tags represent each person who died in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. These tags include names (when known), age, sex, cause of death, physical condition, and location for every recovered human body. The tags are placed on a wall map in the exact location where those remains were found.

Community Workshop

This workshop will ask volunteers to fill out the toe tags and bear witness to the Southern Border humanitarian crisis. We hope individuals emotionally connect with the information conveyed on the tags, to memorialize and stand in solidarity with these lost lives, and participate in the broader migration conversation.

Date and Time: April 18, 2022, 4:30 PM

Location: Camden Fireworks, 1813 South Broadway, Camden, NJ 08014

Other Information: Registration is not required to view the exhibit or attend this event, but art show participants must register for a time slot.
