In the four chromatic large-scale prints of Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Julie Mehretu combines distorted news images from anti-immigration protests with her complex compositions of agitated gestures and erasures.
In the conversation with Jenny Graser, curator at Kupferstichkabinett (Museum for Prints and Drawing) in Berlin, Mehretu speaks about the creation of the four prints, the background of the titles, and the significance of printmaking for her practice.
The conversation was recorded on occasion of Julie Mehretu’s exhibition at BORCH Editions, Berlin, 2021.
