Third Person (Plural) is a companion to Aikaterini Gegisian’s episodic film project of the same name, based on a collection of two hundred post-war informational films and newsreels sourced from the Library of Congress and the American National Archives. Originating as a quest to source documents of the early European integration processes in the post-war United States, Gegisian’s project unfolds into an expansive feminist re-reading of the hegemonic imperial masculine gaze and its manifestation in material images. This is a bracing encounter with the gaze that produced the ‘image’ of the world as the new, Western order bound by the notion of a united Europe. In this book, the eight episodes of the film project are translated into magazine issues mimicking the form of illustrated popular press. Complied and bound together, these eight ‘issues’ become a catalogue, academic interpretation, and compelling work of art.
