EAI presents a series of free public video programs as part of the exhibition Terrorvision at Exit Art. Terrorvision is a multidisciplinary arts project that examines how definitions of terror are shaped by individual and collective visions, experiences, memories and histories. This exhibition explores how personal, spiritual and physical events influence our notions of terror and how these unforgettable moments - and the cultural and media artifacts that represent them - have come to define our most extreme fears.

Free public programs at Exit Art: Organized by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI).
