Collective Trauma explores the experience of pain and our perception of the pain of others. The work delves into issues of oppression, racial segregation in the museum, and the power and privilege of the gaze. The videos invite the viewer to bear witness to difficult to encounter acts that are part of our everyday landscape and shared history; calling into question our role as accomplices in the suffering of others. Furthermore, the work demands an understanding that pain is political, as it questions our awareness of being active members in a society that inflicts pain on people’s everyday lives.
