Storming of the Capitol @ Bronx Documentary Center

A shadow of a supporter of President Trump posing for photos is pictured during a ÒMarch for TrumpÓ rally that echoes the false assertion that the presidential election was marked by fraud in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. One week after President Joe Biden’s presidential victory brought about spontaneous celebrations in the nation’s capital, a crowd that included the group Women for America First, right-wing activists and conspiracy theorists gathered in Washington, DC, to contest the victory.

Storming of the Capitol
January 29 – March 20, 2022

Featuring work by Gabriela Bhaskar, Nina Berman, Victor J. Blue, Adam Gray, Shuran Huang, Christopher Lee, Luke Mogelson, Mark Peterson, and others.

“On January 6, 2021, for the first time in American history, an angry mob stormed the halls of Congress. Protestors destroyed federal property and assaulted police officers. Five people died as a result and more than 150 were injured. The mob successfully halted the 2020 election certification as they rampaged through the Capitol building, searching for legislators and narrowly missing members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence as they were rushed to safety.

If the mob had nullified the popular state-by-state vote and forced the electoral process into the House of Representatives, as some planners hoped, 200 years of American democracy would be at an end.

Through photographs, video and multimedia, the Bronx Documentary Center’s exhibition, Storming of the Capitol, examines in detail the events of January 6th, 2020, seeks to put forth a historical record of events, and sheds light on the deep cleavages in our nation.

Exhibition curated by Michael Kamber and Cynthia Rivera”
