"Politics of Fear"
My favorite work, however, is Fred Burkhart's series of Ku Klux Klan member portraits. These snapshots sting because they are at once extremely goofy and profoundly unsettling. The sight of a mother with her two young children all proudly displaying the Hitler salute is repellent--not because they appear monstrous, but because they look so thoroughly mundane. It's contradictions such as this that make Politics of Fear such a compelling show. Don't miss it.
