An American Mystic in Berlin   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Marsden Hartley at Neue Nationalgalerie April 5th - June 29th
Posted 6/12/14

The Neue Nationalgalerie’s Marsden Hartley, the German Paintings 1913-1915 provides an unprecedented opportunity to see thirty stunning oil paintings from the American Modernist’s Berlin years. These works have not been displayed together in a focused exhibition since the artist exhibited them himself in 1915. Commendably, the Neue Nationalgalerie recognized the need for an exhibition that brings together paintings from a period representing the pinnacle of Hartley’s abstractions and... [more]

AGITPROP: Harun Farocki's Serious Games   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Harun Farocki at Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart February 6th - January 18th, 2015
Posted 3/19/14

In a darkened, hermetic wing of the Hamburger Bahnhof, images are being instrumentalized: software put to use by the U.S. Army to train ground troops in Afghanistan is recycled to de-traumatize those very same soldiers returning as veterans. Presenting this unlikely process in his 2009-2010 series Serious Games, German video artist Harun Farocki reveals a reality incapable of reconciling with itself. Serious Games takes the form of four video cycles comprising three two-channel and one single-ch... [more]

This is best installation in public parks ever!  
by
Krzysztof Wodiczko at Galerie Lelong November 8th, 2012 - November 8th, 2012
Posted 11/20/12

Krzysztof Wodiczko's Abraham Lincoln: War Veteran Projection is the best public space installation in 2012, this is a must see! You can get a few minutes of a quick documentation at https://vimeo.com/53446621 but I suggest viewing the installation live. Like all of Wodiczko's work, this installation is politically charged, moving and mesmerizing. The brilliance is behind the images of 14 war veternas from Vietnam, Afganistan and Iraq, projected  onto the cold bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln. As... [more]

Battle Stress  
by
11/9/10 Posted 11/9/10

BATTLE STRESSby kathleen Daniel I read an article that said: "battle stress may lead to misconduct."    No kidding, Sherlock.It seems men and women, barely old enough to drive, smoke and vote, were sent to Iraq to battle an enemy they can´t see - and watch comrades blown to bits and lose body-parts.  So it´s only commonsense that some soldiers will be left mentally scarred.  Most would agree unless you´re part of an administration, ran by someone who avoided war and habitually hung-out with al...

War

What is war given to people? Don't know. Few days ago, I read with interest of a book about movie posters in Hong Kong, I came across the Chinese movie called Assembly. I just got the movie and will give you a review after watching it. [more]

Nightmares and Numbers  
by
7/22/09 Posted 7/22/09

" NIGHTMARES and NUMBERS " I am a numbers geek. I find working out combinations and permutations even more fun than conjugating French verbs. Therefore, it was a mixed blessing for me when The Post tried to attack a New York Times article on a spate of recent homicides committed by returning Iraqi War veterans on the basis of statistics rather than engage in a meaningful dialogue about war and what it does to the psyches of men...

Was in LA last week  
by
3/2/09 Posted 3/2/09

I want to Los Angeles last W for the CAA conference but had time to explore the artspots close to downtown - not all but some. Many places were hard to find at least for someone unfamiliar with the territory. I also made it to many of the museums and recommend seeing the works at LACMA; the cold war in Germany exhibiton. It was exquisate how they placed some of my favorite artists into the context of their time and place - and helped me understand keiffer's work on another level. There are works by... [more]

The Artifice of War  
by
Nicholas Grider at Sea and Space Explorations January 3rd, 2009 - January 31st, 2009
Posted 1/6/09

Nicholas Grider's exhibition, Artifice and Sacrifice is on display through January 31, 2009. For those unfamiliar with Grider's project, the left wall of the gallery sets out a bit of context. There's a hand-written anecdote from his experiences at Ft. Irwin along with the re-presentation of (presumably) an army manual that translates the command, "Stop or I'll shoot," into multiple languages. On several occasions Grider participated in military exercises at the Army's National Training Cente... [more]

The Land Mine " A Poem Of Longevity"  
by
1/5/09 Posted 1/5/09

      The Land Mine  I wanted to write a story about the land mine and what it has become in modern day warfare but I thought I would cut it short and tell it through my poem, rather simply written but explains it all. I will start first of all by giving you a little insight into what the land mine is, and around it's functionality. Land mines have two main uses, to create tactical barriers and to act as," area denial" weapons. The latter use seeks to deny access to land areas by military and... [more]

Iraqi Eye (2008)  
by
10/10/08 Posted 10/10/08

I started the image bank for “iraqi eye” in late 2003 and the beginning of 2004, at the time of the Seige of Fallujah. “Shock and awe” was already a year old, with no end in sight. No one could really see what was going on there. We were blind and mute. This made me think about the aphasic fugue-- a perseverant mental state typical of traumatized persons. In aphasia you can only speak partially, or in repetitive rounds, stuttering. And about eyes--bleeding eyes and mouths of the civilian casualities, es... [more]
