“Two Minutes to Midnight and the Architecture of Armageddon” at the Old State Capitol

September 1

Currently on exhibit at the Old State Capitol, two photographic essays explore the implications of nuclear war from the perspectives of architectural spaces, which simultaneously explore the collective psyche of Americans when confronted with its reality.

Adam Reynolds essay, No Lone Zone documents, in photographs, the offensive side of the Cold War via nuclear missile silos located in the United States, exploring the mechanisms of Mutually Assured Destruction.

Jeanine Michna-Bales, on the other hand deals in the defense through her project Fallout. In it, she captures shelters and propaganda from across the country—revealing their existence to be a simple placebo for the sake of the American people, who would be sacrificed to the whims of those at the head of the power struggle.
