Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani have collaborated since 2004 on the project Index of the Disappeared, which is both a physical archive of post-9/11 redactions, renditions, detentions, and deportations and a mobile platform for poetic interventions and public dialogue around related issues and ideas. Here, the Index presents a chronology of the project through extracts from, reframings of, and comments on documents drawn from the archive, each of which represents both a particular phase of our research and a slippage between the different registers (systemic/individual, public/private, political/poetic) of the Index.
