Bio/Affiliation: 

Socially engaged artist, educator and Co-founder of the THINK AGAIN collaborative. Bachman’s photo-text works manipulate popular media representations to reveal conformity, hegemony and sexism. THINK AGAIN recruits art in the service of public address and expects something political from art. Utilizing billboards, projections and interventions, they seek to prompt the political imagination, challenge indifference and dissolve the boundary between critique and action. Recent work interrogates: the criminalization of undocumented workers; queer memory; political brutality; and the correspondence between militarism and rape. THINK AGAIN has gift-distributed tens of thousands of posters, postcards and books worldwide. Exhibits: Museu d´Art Contemporani de Barcelona (Spain), Institute Contemporary Art (Boston, Philadelphia,) and Alternative Museum (NY). Awards: National Endowment for the Arts, Massachusetts Cultural Council and LEF Foundation. Publications: Artforum, Social TextReframings: New Feminist PhotographiesGraphic Agitation 2 and A Brief History of Outrage: THINK AGAIN.
