Abstract (English)

"Belvedere is a continuation of David Hartt’s investigation of vernacular utopias—those places where the ideal has been forced to morph and adjust to the reality of the surrounding imperfect world.

Belvedere collects a suite of formally austere photographs taken at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Midland, Michigan. Hartt’s subjects cover a broad ideological spectrum that highlight the range and potential of the American experience. The work in Belvedere focuses on the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, originators of the Overton window, a policy framing device used to adjust public opinion on a particular subject by positing radical viewpoints and thereby shifting the frame of reference closer to an intended outcome. Featuring an essay by architect Markus Miessen." -- Publisher's website.
