Quebrantos: Art tribute to Colombia’s murdered community leaders

One of the most influential Latin American artists has created a major installation mourning murdered community leaders.

Quebrantos, or Shattered – the word also means sadness, sorrow, and loss – is the name of a new art installation in Colombia‘s capital.

Its creator, Doris Salcedo, wants to highlight the killing of community leaders, often by illegal mining companies, criminal gangs or paramilitaries.
