Period & Style
Sara Raza talks about how artists in But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise explore the theme of modernism. She focuses on New York-based Mariam Ghani’s twin-screen video installation A Brief History of Collapses, which details and contrasts modernism as manifest in Afghanistan and Germany thorough the juxtaposition of two buildings, a ruined former palace in Kabul and a restored museum building in Kassel. Raza discusses the juxtaposition of these histories in the context of the Cold War and 9/11.
