Terry Berkowitz

Terry Berkowitz began her career with public works in urbanscapes (Chicago and New York) and short films reflecting on sociological issues. Working mainly with installation over the last few decades, she utilizes whatever medium (or media) will best serve the content of the work (mainly political and social issues).
