Modern Mondays: An Evening with Lynn Horseman Leeson and Tania Bruguera

MoMA presents the New York premiere of artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson’s documentary Tania Bruguera—A State of Vulnerability, about the aftermath of artist and activist Tania Bruguera’s recent incarceration in Cuba. Through footage of Bruguera’s sessions with psychiatrist Dr. Frank Ochberg, who first defined Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the film provides an intimate and politically incisive look at the impact of censorship on the artist’s life and art. Hershman Leeson’s work often addresses the relationship between identity construction and technology, as well as questions of surveillance, civil rights, and censorship. The screening is followed by a discussion between Hershman Leeson, Bruguera, and Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art.
