Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project created by the Undocumented Migration Project, a nonprofit research and arts-education collective directed by anthropologist Jason De León. This art installation is intended to raise awareness about the realities of the U.S.-Mexico border by focusing on the deaths that have been happening almost daily since 1994 as a direct result of the Border Patrol policy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.”
 
The centerpiece of the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibition is an enlarged map composed of approximately 3,200 toe tags representing people who have died while crossing a particular stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between the mid-1990s and 2020. The construction of this memorial at Texas State Galleries is realized with the help of local volunteers invited to participate in the making of these tags, which are later installed on the map in the exact locations where the individuals’ remains were found.

This art exhibition is on view from August 24 to November 10, 2020.

About the Series
The Philosophy Dialogue Series is a unique program of lectures, interactive presentations, and discussions — as many as 60 presentations each semester. Faculty and student presenters come from all 10 colleges on campus, and the Department of Philosophy recruits nationally recognized scholars to participate each semester. Everyone is welcome to attend, and organizers encourage informal dialogues among faculty, students, and visitors.
