A son discovers a silent image of his youthful mother. Staging a maritime funeral of enemy soldiers, another government videotapes a fictitious parody of respect. Tracing propaganda films to the Library of Congress, two artists disrupt the narrative conventions of engagement.
Through these interrogations of displaced and lost archives and fictional histories, Clarifying the Record questions the tenuous links between documentation, social engineering, and truth construction. By locating aporia in the making of a document and the architecture that both beholds and encases it, the works presented explore the charged relationship between the material’s plasticity and the complexities of power between generations of people.
Clarifying the Record is a Generation Loss program. Generation Loss is a critical platform investigating histories and new trajectories of the moving image. Clarifying the Record is brought to you in cooperation with Hanoi DOCLAB.
