18th Year bios

Terry Berkowitz – For over 4 decades I have been dealing with social and political problems that were, for the most part, invisible within the art context until fairly recently. I was a pioneer in working with injustice of all types as primary material. My works often include interviews as a main component. Sculptural elements are blended with audio (found sound, music, etc.), slide and
film projections, photography and/or video. My work has been shown extensively across the US and internationally.
