Identify! or Studies on the Political Subject” is a one-day exhibition of projected images and sound – slides, videos, 16mm film, and FM radio – that investigates the relationship between individuals and the state. In a political environment with systems of inclusion and exclusion (on the level of community, government as well as history) that have been polemically simplified and emotionally charged, these works engage the political subject in its complex and multilayered existences, as discourse, as experience, as claim, as trace, as action and non-action.

The Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School explores the role of the arts in developing a civic culture of tolerance and pluralism in the United States. In public lectures and symposia, through research activities, publications, and programs associated with the University’s art collection, a wide array of visual and performance artists, scholars, curators, and political leaders come together to investigate the intersection of art and politics.

Established in 1992 by a generous grant from the late Vera List, a Life Trustee of New
School University, the Vera List Center embodies the legacy of The New School’s historic involvement with the avant-garde in the arts. During the year 2004-05, the Center’s programming includes an interdisciplinary exploration of the theme of “homeland.”
