Programs complementing Fernando Botero: The Abu Ghraib Series explore the interdisciplinary implications of this important body of work as well as focusing directly on the paintings themselves. Botero will be in residence at UC Berkeley September 21 through 25, during which time he will meet with students and participate in a variety of events. This fall, the Pacific Film Archive will present a film series exploring the depiction of torture from various thematic standpoints.
Public programs for Fernando Botero: The Abu Ghraib Series are copresented with UC Berkeley’s Center for Latin American Studies. They are generously supported in part by the Mellon Foundation through its Distinguished Achievement Award to Thomas Laqueur, Helen Fawcett Distinguished Professor, UC Berkeley Department of History.
