Hello Redact This! Supporter,
Thank you again for your support!
Redact This! Artists Against Torture isn't just for the art world, and it's not just for the human rights community. The work in this book is helping to expose the issue of torture to every demographic. Look what these Manhattan College students had to say about the project after presenting it to them last year:
“I didn’t realize that torture was such a prevalent issue in the world, and I don’t think that I’m the only one."
“The images from Abu Ghraib stood out the most to me due to the explicit torturous acts that were occurring within the images. I could not believe that a place such as this existed only a few years ago, and that it was a complete violation of human rights.”
“The artworks are very beautiful and well drawn, my favorite being Jenny Holzer’s 'Water Board'. Her artwork is that the whole page has redacted words except for two words in the middle, 'water board'. It’s a simple but strong message to the public.”
“The publication of this eBook would help to educate and make people more mindful of this subject, since torture isn’t really one of the things that immediately comes to mind when we think about all of the issues in the world today."
We only have 19 days to reach our funding goal. Now that you've donated to the project, please help keep the momentum going by sharing on your social networks.
Thank you again!
