This podcast focuses on the politics of Jenny Holzer's work on view in "PROTECT PROTECT" at the Whitney Museum. It features Kate Doyle, Senior Analyst at the National Security Archive and Laurel Fletcher, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the International Human Rights Law Clinic, University of California, Berkeley. Doyle offers a close look at Holzers "Redaction Paintings", which feature declassified government documents pertaining to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Fletcher discusses "Lustmord"—a series of texts Holzer wrote in response to the systematic raping of Bosnian women by Serbian soldiers in the genocidal war in the former Yugoslavia.
