Total Recall



Total Recall was an eight-channel video installation for twenty-four TV monitors and three projectors, which premiered at The Kitchen in 1987. The work is eighteen minutes in length and collages moving images from a variety of sources including logos taken from commercial television to edited clips from the 1986 movie Salvador. Total Recall, alongside other of Bender's video works, was included in The Kitchen's fall 2013 exhibition Gretchen Bender: “Tracking the Thrill.”
