Regina José Galindo has developed a socially and politically motivated practice in which she strives to acknowledge the thirty-six years of civil war her country endured, but also looks forward to a more peaceful and productive future. . . Her works are combative and often shocking, bringing into the public realm topics that few Guatemalans dare confront.
