Screen Series: Hannah Black
August 17 - October 30, 2016
Drawing from Marxist, feminist, and radical black theory, Hannah Black’s works are driven by voiceovers and intertitles that illuminate fissures in history and evoke the feelings of alienation and vulnerability that are amplified by social media and the profit structures of capitalism. Language is central to her videos, and her poetic indictments subtly take aim at the legacies of violence and oppression that continue to shape people’s experiences, senses of identity, and relationships to others.
This presentation was part of the New Museum’s Screens Series, a platform for the presentation of new video works by emerging contemporary artists.
