Fascination with the [Game of the] Exploding [Historical] Hollow Leg

1983, 52:53 min, color, sound

This tape documents a multimedia installation with performance elements, which includes a simulated war room with altered maps, nuclear-weapons descriptive material, recruitment posters, military clothing, a slide show of U.S. and European protest marches and posters, giant newspaper collages, a video loop, an audio tour of North American Radar Air Defense, a library of books on war, and more — all topped by two giant cargo parachutes. A forum on activism and a group reading on World War II accompanied the installation at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Camera: Alex Hahn. Production Assistance: John Strauss. Post-Production: Dieter Froese, Alex Hahn at Dekart Video, New York City.
