“In the Aftermath of Trauma: Contemporary Video Installations”

The history of the 20th century and the beginnings of the 21st have been scarred by incomprehensible violence and far-reaching political events. This spring, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will explore both the direct experience and lingering effects of historic upheavals with “In the Aftermath of Trauma: Contemporary Video Installations.”

*screens*Windows shape and frame, both literally and figuratively, the ways we see the world around us. Interfaces represent the points of contact between different systems, spaces and entities — for example, the screen, the mouse or the keyboard that connects the computer with the human user. In August, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will present Window | Interface, an exhibition highlighting the use of windows and interfaces as both boundaries and sites of transaction between machine and mind, data and perception, the world of the body and the world of the imagination.
