The multimedia artist Lisi Raskin uses large-scale drawings, collages, and installations to tackle themes that emerged during the Cold War, from nuclear panic and fallout shelters to the military command centers that brought mankind to the brink of annihilation. Using a mixture of official documents and fictitious scenarios, she takes a nightmarish topic (one that for the most part has faded from the public dialogue) and makes it immediately pressing, and often playfully accessible. 


Raskin's work, which often intermingles geometric motifs from Russian Constructivist art, has been showcased at institutions from MoMA PS1 to Stockholm's IASPIS Project Space, and she has been featured in the Istanbul, Athens, and Singapore biennialsIn 2005, she received the Berlin Art Prize from the American Academy in Berlin, and in 2009, she was commissioned by the Dia Art Foundation to create a video-game-like interactive web project called Warning Warum.
