Welcome to Camp America: Looking for Common Ground

April 22, 2017

Gallery 400 Lecture Room

Welcome to Camp America is a photo book and touring exhibition about Guantánamo Bay, and a case study in new forms of conceptual documentary practice. What if we turn away from the thing itself and instead expose the machinery designed to distract us from it? Can disparate materials, jarringly juxtaposed, provoke a more disruptive, visceral response than mere empathy? This 10-minute talk investigates strategies for upending assumptions to increase engagement across political boundaries.
