How do we recognize a photograph of war? Is it possible to photograph the trauma that lingers in its wake? The exhibition Frames of War takes its title and its premise from Judith Butler’s book, Frames of War, in which she argues for the need to widen our range of recognition, both of war and of the vulnerability it produces. We need to see more. This does not mean that we need to see violence in more graphic detail. It means we need to acknowledge the breadth of violence, even in its excruciatingly banal manifestations.

This exhibition is curated by Natasha Marie Llorens and includes the Tunisian artist Youssef Chebbi, as well as Chitra Ganesh+Mariam Ghani, Helene Kazan, Chelsea Knight, Jeewi Lee, Lina Selander, Ala Eddine Slim, ismaël, and SITU Research Architecture.

LOCATION: MOMENTA ART
DATES: January 18 - March 23, 2015
