How do you remember from 9/11? There were thousands in the streets that day, fleeing the dust and ash from the collapsing towers. But for most of us, the events unfolded as terrifying media reports – photos, footage, radio, television and more.
Even after the 9/11 Commission Report (and its graphic adaptation), new information continues to surface as journalists and historians dig into the record of 9/11 and the aftermath. Last year SVA hosted “here is new york: Revisited” to commemorate the ten year mark.
Below are a few of the many titles covering 9/11 in the Visual Arts Library’s collection from different perspectives, including the original “here is new york” catalog:
