Focusing on a wide range of photographic displays and museum installations as well as such films as Shoah and Schindler's List, Liss questions the role of photography as social practice. She critically analyzes the transformations that documentary and more intimate photographs undergo as they are mediated through contemporary exhibition techniques, both at the institutional level of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and in the hands of a group of contemporary artists and photographers including Art Spiegelman, Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman, Christian Boltanski, Suzanne Hellmuth and Jock Reynolds, and Anselm Kiefer.
Timely and lucidly crafted, Trespassing through Shadows provides crucial insight into debates around representational strategies.
