The performance comprises a four-hour public reading of unedited transcripts from 18 Combatant Status Review Tribunals held at the U.S. military prison camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, between July 2004 and March 2005. During the public performance nine readers rotate through eight juridical positions. The artist group—consisting of Andrea Geyer, Sharon Hayes, Ashley Hunt, Katya Sander, and David Thorne—understands the performance as a simple yet vital gesture towards making these tribunals public. Presented as part of MoMA's ongoing Performance Program.
