BBC: The sudden silencing of Guantanamo’s artists

BBC: The sudden silencing of Guantanamo’s artists. “Until the end of 2017, Guantanamo detainees were allowed to take their art with them when they were released, or give it to their lawyers to take out. The artists could bring their work to meetings with their lawyers, who would submit it along with their meeting notes to a team which vetted it for classified material or national security issues…. Then in late 2017, under the Trump administration, it became clear that art was no longer being allowed out.”
