The MIT List Visual Arts Center is pleased to announce Kabul, Jenin, Tehran… a program of recent video work addressing issues of political and documentary representation, often overlooked by mainstream media. Focused on sites of conflict and resistance—the Colombian armed conflict, postwar Afghanistan—as well as the politics of transparency and representation—the Palestinian refuge camp, the Consejo Comunal—the series includes films by Bodil Furu and Beate Petersen (Norway), Dario Azzellini and Oliver Ressler (Venezuela/Austria), Reza Haeri (Iran), Carlos Motta (Colombia/U.S.), and the Otolith Group (U.K.).
