DescripciónAmerica Recovered reveals the point where abstract political processes manifest themselves in the physical world, thus providing an alternate means of experiencing the contemporary American landscape. Collectively, the images and essays show what aspects of our ev eryday lives are being assigned value in the promise of a recovered America.In 2009 President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Actknown as the stimulus bill. Along with the bill, the administration launched , a website to foster greater accountability and transparency in the use of covered funds. The now-defunct website served as a guide for photographer Cha d Ress to document a variety of projects funded by the Recovery Act. America Recovered collects forty of Resss photographs along wi th essays by Jordan H. Carver and Miriam Paeslack that trace the historical, spatial, and political significance registered within t he images. The two essays frame Resss project within a history of US American documentary and landscape photography and its implica tions for a generations relation to constructions of nationhood, progress, and recovery.America Recovered collects forty images tha t mark one of the only efforts to document the breadth of projects funded by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Unlike the New Deal and other programs designed for employment and infrastructural development, the Recovery Act was passed without any fu nds dedicated for photographic documentation. Using an official government website as his guide, Chad Ress took photographs of proje cts across the country. The publication of America Recovered at this moment allows for a critical reassessment of the Act and its la sting impact on the American landscape.The two essays by architectural writer Jordan H. Carver and photography historian Miriam Paes lack situate Resss photographs within broader discourses of urbanism, infrastructure, and politics. The question of what role the g overnment should play in everyday life remains one of the touchstone issues in American politics. The photographs and essays ask a d ifferent set of questions, not whether government spending is good or bad, whether it worked or didnt, but what, exactly does gover nment spending look like. And importantly, America Recovered asks how government spending and civic identity are constructed around place.
