More Info

For The Neighbor Next Door (1995), Attie projected archival film footage from World War II onto Amsterdam sidewalks. The films, which had been taken by people driven into hiding by the Nazis, suggested what life on the street might have looked like to someone living clandestinely.

For this installation, the artists and Northwestern radio/tv/film professors Dave Tolchinsky and Debra Tolchinsky have recreated the 1995 project for the Block's Alsdorf Gallery.
