Using Bender’s notion of deathlessness as a framework, Virtual Histories is a special series of film and video screenings that presents short video works and feature films by artists who explore multi-dimensional memory, alternative scenarios, and imaginary time.  

As part of the series, the curatorial staff, in collaboration with The Gretchen Bender Estate, presents a collection of videos found in Bender’s archives, from military commercials and sponsored films, to Siggraph demo reels and early computer graphic experiments.
