HOUSE OF CARDS: REBUILDING
While 2008 made us aware of the housing crisis, with the improvements in the economy the assumption is that the crisis is over. The reality is, people are still challenging loss of home. Watch the short films we produced for the exhibition.
House of Cards: Rebuilding is the first presentation of a work-in-progress exhibition featuring the personal stories of community members who have struggled to save their homes. The narratives included confront loss of home through eviction, foreclosure, forced displacement and other threats to our human right to housing. Through photographs, short films, and research, this new work allows us to learn how our neighbors are dealing with these issues and meet the organizations they are working with to confront this challenge. House of Cards: Rebuilding Chicago’s exhibition was generously supported in part by the Pierce Family Foundation and Peter Kupferberg. Presented in partnership with the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
