Description

Zu Aura Rosenbergs Arbeit Harmony Korine/Carmen

"Harmony Korine is a young filmmaker. He wrote the screenplay for Larry Clark's Kids [1995] and directed his own film Gummo [1997]. In his collaboration with me he painted my daughter Carmen in 'blackface' holding a guitar. We videotaped it and I shot pictures off the TV monitor. 'Blackface' refers to so called minstrel shows where white entertainers supposedly mimicked black ones. This practice is charged with racist overtones. In The Jazz Singer [1927], the first movie with sound, Al Jolson appeared in black face. I think Harmony chose this image because it reflects film history yet remains troubling and conflicted."
(Aura Rosenberg)
