SANCTUARY CITY/CIUDAD SANTUARIO, 1989-2009 (2009)
Video, text and audio Installation

The project Sanctuary City/Ciudad Santuario, 1989-2009, is the fruition of a two-year process of investigation and research prompted by the post-9/11 increase in federal immigration raids. By consulting with a number of local nonprofits (the ACLU, the Edgewood Center for Children and Families, the Mission Asset Fund, the Mission Economic Development Agency, ¡Poder!, La Voz Latina, Dolores Community Center and CARECEN) as well as with national NGOs, international think tanks, and governmental agencies, I assembled a bloc of video projections and photographs, together with a text-based installation and limited-edition timeline, that explores and questions the ways in which this pattern of increased federal intervention has affected the Bay Area immigrant community.
