REMEMBER THE

43 STUDENTS

Art Installation and Campus Engagement

Sept. 17 - Oct. 1 @ DSU

Presented by 

College of Humanities and Social Sciences 

From whom can you demand justice if the same law that kills is the one that picks up the bodies? Where can one press charges if all the authorities are drenched in blood? The same law that takes measurements and conducts the investigation to discover who the killer is, is the one that committed the crime.

--Osiris in Alfredo Molano, Desterrados: Crónicas del desarraigo

“Remember the 43 Students” at DSU

"Remember the 43 Students" commemorates the six people who were killed and the 43 students who were “disappeared” in a night of unspeakable political violence in Iguala, Guerrero state, Mexico on September 26, 2014.  

While our on-campus installation and events have concluded, you can still experience the installation virtually by clicking on the links below.
