On Militarism, Nation-Building and Propaganda
Gregg Bordowitz, H. Lan Thao Lam, Lana Lin, and Jennifer Montgomery will have a conversation that takes as a point of departure Lin + Lam’s exhibition ‘Unidentified Vietnam.’ The exhibition extends from research into an archive of South Vietnamese propaganda films housed at the Library of Congress. Study of these films – their co-production, distribution, and acquisition by the US government – lead to considerations about the history of US interventions and propaganda as a tool for nation-building and democratization.
‘Unidentified Vietnam’ is currently on view at Gallery 456 (456 Broadway, 3rd fl.) until October 12.
