"Heroes of War," by Gonzalo Lebrija, is a video installation projected in the auditorium of the San Diego Veterans Museum in Balboa Park. Over a year before, Lebrija began working with veterans at the Veterans Home of California in Chula Vista. Gonzalo's goal was to intervene in the museum space, creating a curatorial discourse that approximates a creative group experience. Gonzalo participated in a number of reunions of former prisoners of war, or POWs. These experiences led him to explore the notion of military paraphernalia and veterans' narratives. Gonzalo filmed a number of individuals while they discussed the public recognition accorded to them and their actions as servicemen in times of war. --inSite_05
