PROJECT FOR A NEW AMERICAN CENTURY
OR WRITING AND THE ART OF PERSECUTION

by Keith SANBORN
2007 / b&w / silent / 1S / 25' 17

Project for A New American Century, Or Writing and the Art of Persecution explores and attempts to unmask the intellectual strategies of University of Chicago philosopher Leo Strauss, that have gained such influence among members of the Bush administration and its supporters. These strategies constitute a kind of debased hermeneutics, that creates esoteric and exoteric constructions of texts and events. They have been used to justify duplicity as a matter of policy and torture as a way of enforcing adminstration views.
