What We Can Learn From Art Painted Inside Guantánamo

Painting of beach

Erin Thompson in The Nation: “We spent the day at a beach in Brooklyn. Skyscrapers floated in the distance and my toddler kept handing me cigarette filters she had dug out of the sand. When we got home, I checked my e-mail. I had been sent a picture of a very different beach: deserted, framed by distant headlands with unsullied sands and clear waters. As it happened, I was looking not at a photograph but at a painting by a man imprisoned at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp.”
