Who are you related to? Four years ago, photographer Taryn Simon went on a mission to find the links between people, places, and things by researching and documenting their bloodlines and related stories. The result is a massive exploration into the connections that bind us literally or arbitrarily in the exhibition A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters. Simon's project is broken down into 18 chapters, nine of which will be will be on display at MOMA. One features a large portrait series that depicts the bloodline members, the second features text, and a third contains photographic evidence. The subjects Simon documents include victims of genocide in Bosnia, test rabbits infected with a lethal disease in Australia, the first woman to hijack an aircraft, and the living dead in India.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: May 9. Continues through Sept. 3, 2012
