Monuments of Void

Wolf von dem Bussche's Photographs of the Twin Towers

California Museum of Photography

March 23 - July 6, 2013

Reception - Saturday, June 1, 2013, 6pm - 9pm



"Monuments of Void: Wolf Von Dem Bussche's Photographs of the Twin Towers" examines the re-contextualization of the towers alongside issues of memorialization and the meanings associated with sites and images post-9/11. Through the use of Wolf Von Dem Bussche's photographs of the Twin Towers from the California Museum of Photography's permanent collection, we, as the viewers, see the towers in a different aesthetic light that forcefully de-familiarizes us with the subject and through abstraction, conjures up elements of memorialization and loss.
