State of Exception

The VCW is working on some exciting events for this semester.

In the meantime, go see the provocative exhibition, State of Exception at the Institute for Humanities Gallery, 202 S. Thayer.

“This exhibition presents traces of the human experience–backpacks, water bottles, border patrol restrains, and other objects left behind in the desert by undocumented migrants on their journey into the U.S. This in combination with video shot by Richard Barnes on location along the U.S./Mexico border comprises State of Exception, the first major curation of the work of U-M anthropologist Jason De León’s Undocumented Migration project. This collaboration between artist/photographer Richard Barnes, De León, and curator Amanda Krugliak considers the complexity and ambiguity of the found objects and what they may or may not reveal in terms of transition, human experience, culture, violence, and accountability.”
