Museum of Critical Context

Fall 2016

A book that juxtaposes two historical narratives. On the left-hand page, text marks important dates in the rise to power of the Marcos regime in the Philippines. On the page opposite, an image on the wall of the gallery (as in an exhibition catalog). Turning the page, the image is revealed to be die-cut window that is cropping a larger portrait. The portraits are taken from my family’s archive of photographs, day-to-day lived experiences from that 20-year dictatorship.
