Mark Lombardi: Kunst und Konspiration

Mark Lombardi: Kunst und Konspiration

Paranoia is one of the overarching themes of this election season, so it seems fitting that this weekend’s Art and Design Film Fest would acknowledge our collective fears with a German-made documentary about Mark Lombardi. The artist’s work now auctions for six figures, but shortly after 9/11 the most interested collectors were the FBI and Department of Homeland Security. That’s because Lombardi’s pencil drawings are insanely intricate webs tracing the real-life connections between governments, banks, drug cartels and arms manufacturers. Works with titles like “Banco Nazionale del Lavoro, Reagan, Bush, Thatcher, and the Arming of Iraq, c. 1979-1990 (4th version)” are now owned by the Museum of Modern Art.
