The Good & The Glamorous, A Memoir of Misremembering & The Cold War, Forthcoming Summer 2018

Inspired by the writings, and especially the image-as-related-to-writing, of W.G. Sebald, I plan to take this approach and apply it to my personal recollections and (mis)rememberings growing up the daughter of a diplomat during the height of the Cold War in Frankfurt, Germany (the late 1970s) and Moscow in the early 80s. Sebald’s written works are “notable for their curious and wide-ranging mixture of fact (or apparent fact), recollection and fiction, often punctuated by indistinct black-and-white photographs set in evocative counterpoint to the narrative rather than illustrating it directly.” Continuing my overall interest in alternative narratives and histories, misinformation, the inherent fiction of the documentary and the archive, I will be photographing my parent’s Cold War archive, creating a visual archive of their version of the cold war, and combining it with texts of my memories. I will be working on this memoir of misremembering, a project that seems timely with our current political relationship to Moscow, in conjunction with the Wende Museum in Los Angeles for the duration of the project as an artist-in-residence, planning a gradual collapsing of our archives and working towards both a book form and an exhibition at the museum.
