The Guantanamo Bay Museum of Art and History was inaugurated on August 29, 2012. An initiative of the artist, theorist, and curator Ian Alan Paul, the site is a mockinsitution, a fictional entity at the “former” site of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp in Cuba (see: conceptual edifices). The Museum’s mission is publically described as one of commemoration; it is a site dedicated to remembering the prison that was active between 2002 and 2012, before it was permanently decommissioned and closed. The museum features a large number of facilities at its site, including the Tipton-Three Exhibition Space (in reference to the collective of British citizens held for three years in extrajudicial detention), and the Jumah al-Dossari Center for Critical Studies (al-Dossari, who spent three and a half years in solitary confinement, was released without prosecution following five years of imprisonment). As a part of the project, the museum is also featured as an official location on Google maps, where it can still be found (see: postartistic times).
