On 15th March 2008 - 21st May 2008 She doesn't think so but she's dressed for the h-bomb - Gang of Four

The current moment is one marked by an abundance of mega-narratives, sweeping arm gestures, climactic dips, and ascents. How we talk about the present is almost always wrapped up in some version of the past. Visual culture inevitably brushes up against those histories, whether real or imagined (for that is not the point). A selection of short videos by Ziad Antar, Yael Bartana, Haris Epaminonda, Iman Issa, Hassan Khan, Rosalind Nashashibi, Shahryar Nashat, Ahmet Ogut, and The Atlas Group reveal the weight of diverse histories in defining the current moment – whether manifest in the form of national myth, ritual, architecture, or pop culture. In the end, these are not static narratives; they are dynamic, promiscuous, enigmatic.
