This Artist Talk is organized by guest curator Lisa Rockford in conjunction of the exhibition "Camouflage: Patterns of Disruption." Exploring power structures and visual forms of state control, Sanaz Mazinani reimagines contemporary media imagery to activate critical reflection. This project evokes past and present methods of recording and distributing knowledge to explore the aesthetics and politics of war. Mazinani’s creative approach to politicized imagery serves to intensify its seductive power, inviting a visceral engagement with the narratives of war that pushes against indifference. As part of an artistic practice that weaves histories together to deepen understanding of cultural disparities and the collective concerns that unite individuals, this project provides a haven for discussions about the realities of contemporary warfare, which are often under-represented in Western media.
