> DESCRIPTION

"Monuments of Void: Wolf Von Dem Bussche's Photographs of the Twin Towers" examines the re-contextualization of the towers alongside issues of memorialization and the meanings associated with sites and images post-9/11. Through the use of Wolf Von Dem Bussche's photographs of the Twin Towers from the California Museum of Photography's permanent collection, we, as the viewers, see the towers in a different aesthetic light that forcefully de-familiarizes us with the subject and through abstraction, conjures up elements of memorialization and loss.
