Abstract

Jacques Rancière states that an aesthetic politics defines itself by a recasting of the distribution of the sensible, my text applies Rancière's statement in its analysis of Index of the Disappeared (2004-), a project created by two diasporic artists from the Global South based in the US. Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani productively use the gaps in de-classified post 9/11 documents to make visible the excluded and marginalized voices from contemporary politics and society in the North.
