Artists have regularly explored the suspicion between governments and their citizens, and the 1950s and '60s—a postwar time of growth in Western democracies and their bureaucracies—allowed this field to grow further. This exhibit, the first major one to tackle the topic, showcases more than 30 artists and their works produced between 1969 and 2016. The Met Breuer's display is accompanied by Jane and Louise Wilson: Stasi City, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue. This four-channel video is a tour of the former headquarters of the East German secret police.
