The Cold War divided the world, leaving people on each side wondering what life was really like on the other side of the Iron Curtain. To shed light on the ways Cold War history impacted human lives, the Fiona Chalom and Joel Aronowitz Historical Human Witness Project has been gathering oral histories from those who lived in the Eastern Bloc during the period from 1945 to 1991. This event will be a live interview conducted at the Wende Museum.

Sun Mu, trained by the North Korean army as a propaganda artist, managed to escape in 1998 via China, Laos, and Thailand to South Korea. He uses the officially sanctioned painting style of socialist realism, inspired by propaganda posters from the Chinese Cultural Revolution under Mao Zedong, to create images filled with criticism and irony in the style of American Pop Art and Soviet Sots Art. This is the first exhibition of his work in the United States.

Look up! Looming above Los Angeles are haunting relics of panic and fear. Once distinctly prominent and alarming fixtures in the city, civil-defense air-raid sirens still pepper the vast landscape. Installation began during World War II, but the sirens became prolific symbols of the subsequent Cold War. By photographing environmental portraits of the sirens, Nicole Weingart has created a comprehensive photographic series of Los Angeles air-raid sirens. This exhibition presents a sample of the diversity of the series.
