  • This exhibition will be the Chicago premiere of this internationally exhibited German artist. Baumgarten will show 50 new photographs focusing on the territorial clash between Native Americans and the “Manifest Destiny” of the United States, as embodied in the continental expansion and entrenchment of the railroad. Chicago played a pivotal role in this destructive conquest; what once was a fertile region for food-gathering for the Potawatomi Indians in the 18th century was transformed into the epicenter of the nation’s railroad network.
