“Image War brings together artistic responses to the mediation of images of war and conflict in our current digitized media culture. It focuses on strategies of appropriation of mass-disseminated images of conflict, many of which have received an iconic status due to the mass media’s extreme packaging and filtration of images since the first Gulf War. The works in Image War remix, transform, or mimic images from the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, the U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans, hijackings, popular uprisings, recent American military interventions, and other violent political events.” Tonight, image war hosts a special screening of Coco Fusco’s Operation Atropos, a film that “documents Fusco and several of her students participating in the activities of a field course in U.S. military interrogation techniques, which involves an immersive simulation of the POW experience.”
Location: Martin E. Segal Theatre, Grad center at CUNY (365 5th Ave @ 34th Street)
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm
