This spring, MAD presents a survey of the German born artist Julika Rudelius’ cinematic works.  Occupying the space between fact and fiction, Rudelius explores the boundaries between narrative, documentary and cinema vérité.  By addressing a series of subjects ranging from the American wealthy elite, fashion conscious European immigrants, political trainees, to sex obsessed youth, Rudelius remixes the partially staged testimonials from her subjects to construct eye-opening, sometimes startling, statements about the roles of fashion, materialism, self worth, and identity within in a capitalist society.
