The futility and absurdity of the rhetoric and politics of extermination is explored in this work through the juxtaposition of text and image.

Text: speech by Colombia’s president to its military forces.

Image: footage of 1948’s Bogotá’s people’s revolt after the assassination of presidential candidate Jorge Eliécer Gaitán. This revolt, known as “El Bogotazo,” marked the beginning of Colombia’s current internal conflict.
