Curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné, this exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art Chile – Quinta Normal Venue raised questions about the culture of representation and continued the museum’s tradition of presenting challenging artwork with political and social content in Chile. People I Met is a series of images that show the lives of Palestinians in the occupied territories, captured over Miki Kratsman’s decades-long photography career working in Gaza and the West Bank. The images, which exist as cropped portraits on a Facebook page, are isolated from their original frame and context. The faces are uploaded with just the date, location and Kratsman’s simple question: “What happened to the people in the photographs?”
