Curator John Miller gives a guided tour of the exhibition Lost in America at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. The video provides detailed information on the group exhibition, which presents works by American artists from 1937 to the present which sharpens our understanding of the current political situation in the USA. The exhibition revisits American history with investigations of the influences and developments that have shaped the identity of the United States through its specific national and political economy – in particular the institution of slavery and its tragic legacy in terms of culture and everyday life. A central theme is the examination of racism and its role in a neoliberal agenda that significantly influences social discourses and political decisions.
