With this monograph, award-winning multidisciplinary artist Vera Frenkel receives her first major survey. Exhibited internationally, her installations, videos, writings and media arts projects address the forces at work in human migration and displacement, the learning and un-learning of cultural memory, the relation of totalitarianism and resistance and the increasing bureaucratization of experience. Works discussed include String Games: Improvisations for Inter-City Video; This Is Your Messiah Speaking; "... from the Transit Bar"; Body Missing; ONCE NEAR WATER and The Blue Train.
