34,000 Pillows

Diaz Lewis will present their ongoing and participatory project, “34,000 Pillows,” through which the collaborative is making pillows out of clothing donated by undocumented immigrants, former detainees, and their allies. Each pillow represents an immigrant detained by Immigrations and Custom Enforcement to fulfill a statutory quota established by the 2010 Congressional “bed mandate” that incentivizes ICE to keep 34,000 beds filled in detention centers on a daily basis.
