Curated by Jinyoung A. Jin, Forgotten Faces traces the cultural phenomenon of mass killings in Asia, where untold numbers of civilians died as a result of colonialism, Cold War politics, unstable nation-state systems, capitalism, globalization, social and economic inequality, and growing ecological challenges. This exhibition reveals the links between these crimes against humanity and works of art from Cambodia, India, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. These works illustrate the tensions between journalism and aesthetics, and documentation of unspeakable acts and a crisis of representation.
