Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese "Conversations with Contemporary Artists"

The Museum of Modern Art

This event has ended.

With every presidential election beginning in 1984, Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese have compiled and edited Political Advertisement, a historical survey of television campaign spots from 1952 to the present. This anthology, updated to include advertisements from the 2008 presidential campaign, documents the selling of the American presidency since the 1950s. As Muntadas and Reese trace the development of the TV "spot," a social and media history emerges revealing how campaign spots have become a political strategy and manipulative marketing technique. This evening, the artists debut the latest version of Political Advertisement in a premiere presentation followed by commentary by Laura Flanders, journalist, Air America host of Radio Nation, and author of Blue Grit.
