Exhibit Shows Absences In Families Created By Dictatorship In Argentina


This Wednesday world renowned photographer Gustavo Germano will present his exhibit about people disappeared by Argentinean dictators.

From 1976 to 1983 an estimated 30,000 people were kidnapped by the government during the military dictatorship in Argentina.

Gustavo Germano's 18 year old brother, Eduardo disappeared. His remains were found last year. The photographer now uses that personal experience for his exhibit "ausencias" –absences, which is on display at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.

Debbie Williamson, the Communications Manager of the museum says, "you get to see the historic photograph, and then the photographer restaged them exactly in the same order and poses with the missing people absent. They're quite powerful"

Germano's photos will remain on display  at JSMA through august. He will speak at 7pm at 182 lillis on the U of O campus.
