“Political events are part of everyday life [in Colombia], so art and politics came to me as a natural thing, something that has been very much present in my life from the start.”
In a new previously unpublished interview with Doris Salcedo, the artist discusses how people’s experiences of war, displacement, and imprisonment form the foundation of her sculptures and ephemeral installations.
