IT BROKE FROM WITHIN is an exhibition by artist Goshka Macuga, curated by Peter Eeley and Bartholomew Ryan at the Walker Art Center. Mining the archives and collection of the museum, Macuga surfaces the original motivation to create the institution—as an arts institution dedicated to community building and conversation— and frames it in the context of our current political landscape that divides rather than brings people together.
This gallery guide features an interview between Macuga and Eeley, as well as expanded interpretations of particular aspects of the exhibition by Ryan. The quote on the cover appears in an early brochure promoting the construction of the Walker, warning that without fostering a sense of togetherness and understanding regardless of medium, we risk being taken over by hatred and oppression.
