Archive State

Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 10:00am

Museum of Contemporary Photography 600 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

The artists featured in Archive State use found photographs and digital imagery to investigate significant political and economic transitions specific to particular places -- the epicenter of the twentieth century auto industry in decline, China's burgeoning capital city, young American soldiers in a war zone, an oppressive East German state, and the activities of apolitical Arab youth on the eve of the Arab Spring.  Playing with histories, both public and private, Arianna Arcara and Luca Santese, Simon Menner, David Oresick, Thomas Sauvin, and Akram Zaatari complicate issues of authorship and intent.
