Bringing the War Home
Jeannine Tang will examine the range and reception of Martha Rosler’s photomontage series Bringing the War Home (1967-1972), with implications for how art history produces its objects of media, activism and art.

About the Speakers Series: Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum’s concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lectures are open to students and faculty, as well as to the general public, and will also be documented through video and/or audio recordings, which will reside in the CCS Bard Library and Archives. “Work in Progress” sessions of the Speakers Series highlight projects currently being developed by members of the CCS Bard faculty, offering a unique opportunity for engagement with ideas, methodologies, and pragmatics still in the process of testing and refinement.
