Terror Culture (Farewell NYC)

Posted in Personal/Meta, War & Culture by rearleft on April 21, 2009


Nina Berman presents casual, sometimes hyper realistic moments that reveal what it’s really like to live in Babylon. She is well known for Purple Hearts, a series of images of young injured veterans.

Her latest work, Homeland, pictures this nation’s imaginings of its own greatness. Big, real pictures of a big, loud, fuck you country. Hooah!


On April 29, at Alwan for the Arts, downtown Manhattan, Nina will be speaking and showing slides. A documentary about her work will accompany, with comments and Q&A by Nina Berman, and the documentary’s director, Denise Gaberman.

(full disclosure: Denise is my darling wife and the mother of my child. we’re moving to Australia two days after this screening, so this would be a great chance to see us if you haven’t yet, or if you want to see baby Ramona…)
