Artist Mariam Ghani discusses her artwork A Brief History of Collapses, describing the histories of the two buildings—one of which is in Kabul, the other in Kassel—on which it is focused. Ghani talks about her creative process and the research she undertook in making the work, outlining the “story map” that she produced to aid the forging of connections between the buildings. She also ponders non-linear narration, storyboarding, choreography, the plight of modernism, and the installation of the work at the Guggenheim in But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise (April 29−October 5, 2016).
