Ten Years of Terror
Solomon Guggenheim Museum, NY
The Ten Years of Terror film was screened at the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York on September 9th, 12th, and 13th. The screenings were followed by Q&A sessions with the directors Brad Evans & Simon Critchley.
“In a week wherein New York was flooded with documentary images and media coverage of those unforgettable days, the program provided Guggenheim Museum visitors with an opportunity to come together and try to make sense of the attacks and subsequent political actions through ideas and language. Paying homage to the museum’s founding principles of non-objectivity, whose practitioners engaged in ongoing philosophical debates regarding aesthetics and spirituality, the film rang true as a contemporary such expression akin to many artists’ use of the power of dialogue and eloquence of words in their work. The film also resonated with the Sackler Center’s core educational method based on an inquiry approach to learning and a commitment to public discourse. We were incredibly pleased with the critical attention the film brought to the museum. The audience of artists, scholars, film appreciators, and an international representation of general museum visitors expressed equal gratitude in attending the screenings. The daily rhythm of the three screenings bracketing September 11 itself, allowed the museum to mark another similar week from the distance of ten years yet still incredibly close in our collective memory”.
