With the help of local residents, Thomas Hirschhorn built a public artwork called the Gramsci Monument in the Forest Houses in the Bronx this past summer. From July 1 to September 15, the monument brought a theater, a radio station, lectures, art and computer rooms, and more to the public housing complex.

En Foco’s Collection Champions Minority Artists – NYTimes.com

From the NYTimes lens blog
Perched somewhere above a “We Buy Gold” joint and a Latin restaurant on Kingsbridge Road in the Bronx, a darkroom turned storage closet was once a repository for an almost overlooked visual history. It was an unlikely spot for an equally unlikely – and unrivaled – collection that now comprises 700 photographs by Latino, African-American and Asian photographers and other artists of color.

Such were the origins of the permanent collection of En Foco, which started as a Latino photographers’ group in 1974, when notions of community, art and ethnic pride fueled a movement that stood in defiance to the slights of the mainstream art world.

Staehle’s work explores the dynamics, sensations, and implications of connectivity.

Jennifer Karady: War Zones


War Zone Traumas, Restaged at Home 
by Jennifer Karady.

Jennifer Karady, In Country: Soldiers Stories From Iraq and Afghanistan is the result of five years’ work by Ms. Karady, who interviewed dozens of veterans and asked them to talk about their most traumatic war moments. She then overlaid those memories onto their present-day lives, in the suburbs, back at school and, in one case, on the streets.
