The names of those killed in the Syrian conflict between the 15th of March 2011 and the 31st of December 2016

Livestream 21–29 May 2017

Santiago Sierra’s latest performance piece acutely personifies the 6-year war in Syria. Over eight days, pairs of Arabic speakers read aloud the names of people killed in the conflict. The performance takes place in four locations following an East to West path, from Tel Aviv to Vienna, London, and finally Buenos Aires.
