State of Disappearance
Featuring nearly 80 new and original works, this dedicated series of works produced between 2017-2020 addresses the relationship between violence and human disappearance.
STATE OF DISAPPEARANCE will be published as part of the Outspoken series with McGill-Queens University Press in fall 2021. Bringing some of the most critically minded thinkers dealing with the question of violence in the world, State of Disappearance will be the very first volume of its kind to deal specifically with the problem of human disappearance from a truly trans-disciplinary perspective. Edited by Professor Brad Evans and accompanied by the artwork of the Mexican abstract painter Chantal Meza, the project will bring attention to the many ways disappearance occurs, and in the process ask about the importance or limits of the arts, humanities and critical enquiry when in comes to responding to the problem of violence in the world today.
