Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives
History Restaged brings together artists whose practices address the need for critical thinking, and individual and collective responsibility. Employing strategies of staged reconstruction, reenactments, estrangement, humor and irony, the selected works use filmic, literary, archival and art historical references to revisit historically significant events and unsettle our conventional notions of reality.
