Exploring the didactic potential of the moving image, Tommy Hartung’s videos analyze the creation and dissemination of cultural narratives through entertainment. Often taking the major themes of modernism as his subject matter, his work has addressed colonial expansion and exploration, evolution, conquest, and innovation.
He has had solo exhibitions at Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht, The Rose Art Museum in Waltham, and Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. His works have been included in group exhibitions at The Jewish Museum, MoMA PS1, and Queens Museum in New York, among other institutions.
