About Dara Birnbaum
b. 1946, New York. Lives and works in New York.
Dara Birnbaum’s provocative video works are among the most influential and innovative contributions to the contemporary discourse on art, television and media. In her videotapes and multi-media installations, Birnbaum applies both low-end and high-end video technology to subvert, critique or deconstruct the power of mass media images and gestures to define mythologies of culture, history and memory. Through a dynamic televisual language of images, music and text, she exposes the media’s embedded ideological meanings and posits video as a means of giving voice to the individual.
