Dara Birnbaum’s provocative video works are among the most influential and innovative contributions to the contemporary discourse on art and television. 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. Her work has been exhibited at major institutions such as: Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC and the Tate Modern, London. Birnbaum lives and works in New York City.
