“One can contribute research content to the Mark Lombardi Memorial Library by scanning any missing out-of-print historical titles below and sharing them in popular file formats, towards creating a searchable online database of Mark Lombardi’s areas of research. One also might participate by mirroring the scans online somewhere safe tagged #MarkLombardiLibrary (fair use historical research). Thanks for any assistance.” – Linda Lovelace
“From the Rockefeller’s MoMA collection website [who have all of Mark’s hand-written index cards safely locked up in the basement, available for viewing ‘upon request’ (good luck)]: “These scandals, such as Whitewater or the Vatican Bank, were researched by Lombardi in an exhaustive manner, from a range of sources in the public domain, the Findings then being stored in an extensive filing card system. After establishing the key connections and relations between powerful figures, Lombardi would then schematize these by means of circles containing names of individuals and organisations, joined by connecting lines.”
CONNECTING the DOTS
by Sarah Schmerler / 05/15/12
“When Mark Lombardi died, at the age of 48, he left behind a controversial body of work—large-scale, maplike drawings that chart connections between the worlds of international banking, organized crime, arms dealing, terrorism, oil, and government—the result of countless hours of research distilled into spartan webs of pencil lines and text. He also left a legacy shrouded in conjecture and mystery.
Did he take his own life in his Brooklyn apartment on the night of March 22, 2000, or were there more insidious forces at work? What did a woman claiming to be an FBI agent hope to find when she called the Whitney Museum of American Art, owner of one of Lombardi’s most epic drawings, soon after 9/11, asking to study the piece? A new feature-length documentary, called Mark Lombardi: Death-defying Acts of Art and Conspiracy, takes on these and other questions, and spotlights the sinister links found in Lombardi’s art.

German director and writer Mareike Wegener worked with a small crew for two and a half years to shoot the film, conducting interviews with most everyone who was in some way close to Lombardi: New York–based artists Rafael Vargas-Suarez, Greg Stone, Fred Tomaselli, and James Siena; the owners of Brooklyn’s Pierogi Gallery, Joe Amrhein and Susan Swenson; art historian Robert Hobbs; and Lombardi’s dry-eyed and stunningly honest parents and siblings, in his childhood hometown outside Syracuse, New York.
“The visit to his parents was one of the most fraught times, but also turned out to be one of the most rewarding times of the film. All were really up front,” Wegener says. “They were concerned with the possibility of my scandalizing things. But if you look at Lombardi’s work,” she adds, “he’s really de-scandalizing things. He’s putting things together in a very subtle way, and that’s something I’m doing in the film, too.”
Wegener intersperses the interviews with archival news footage that illustrates events detailed in the drawings—Manuel Noriega giving a speech, Oliver North testifying before Congress at the Iran-contra hearings, executives of the First American Bank in a great hurry to leave a courthouse, black-hooded foreign soldiers toting guns—edited in such a way that the clips cycle back and repeat, echoing the formal structure of the drawings.
“Mark never talked about people hijacking planes and crashing them into buildings,” says Vargas-Suarez in the film, referring to 9/11, “but he knew about the activities of how these things would be financed. . . . He had a vast knowledge of the networks that would create a scenario like this. His work was showing you the abuses of power. And some of the same people that you see on the news making trouble in different parts of the world—they’re all in the works.”
MAKING POLITICALLY INCORRECT ART
by Uri Dowbenko / 2003
“One of the drawings called “George W. Bush, Harken Energy and Jackson Stephens, ca 1979-90” (1999) shows the connections of James Bath, a former CIA spook and business broker, front man for Saudi money who connected the Bush Family and Bin Laden Family (of the Osama bin Laden/ 9-11 legend) in shady deals in Texas and around the world.
Other drawings document the Savings and Loan (S&L) Frauds, IraqGate Fraud (illicit sales of nuclear and biological weapons to Iraqi kingpin Saddam Hussein with a $5 billion US Government-guaranteed phony “agricultural loan” through the Banca Nazionale de Lavoro), Iran Contra Fraud, and the Clinton/ Jackson Stephens Frauds.
Lombardi was an artist and an archivist, not an investigative reporter; he simply used available material from books and newspaper articles (from the public record) for the information “content” of his work. Viewing his art (mostly un-inked pencil drawings) requires the ability to 1/ see the graphics, 2/ read the names of people and corporate fronts, and then 3/ integrate this content of networks into an epiphany about How the Real World Works.
Historically, of course, the Harken Stock Fraud made George W. Bush his first serious chunk of money. It should be also noted that Bath, a former cokehead pal of George Jr., was also connected with the notorious Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) Fraud. Lombardi’s web-like drawings show the decentralized nature of the networks of crime and flows of global capital. The key is a multitude of front companies, which add layers of complexity to the conspiracies themselves.
Allegedly diagnosed with bipolar disorder (manic depression), Lombardi supposedly died from suicide (or was suicided) in 1999 — after two successful solo shows and just as his career was about to go to the next level. It should also be noted that Jim Hatfield, author of “Fortunate Son,” (Soft Skull Press), a biography of George W. Bush, which alleged that George Bush Jr. was convicted in Texas on cocaine charges, until his record disappeared from the court system, was also found dead by suicide in an Oklahoma motel.
Artist Mark Lombardi (1951-2000), whose business card ironically read “Death Defying Acts of Art and Conspiracy,” was found dead in his studio, officially declared a suicide in the police report. Or as government whistleblower Al Martin, author of “The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran Contra Insider” (http://almartinraw.com) says, “The guy put together one chart too many.”
Martin was retained by attorney Frank Rubino, defense counsel for Panamanian strongman Antonio Noriega, to produce a chart for the courtroom, which would explain the complex relationships between individuals and offshore companies, etc. The 5’ x 9’ chart was topped off by a color photo of former president George Herbert Walker Bush and Antonio Noriega embracing one another, both giving a victory sign to the camera. It should be noted that US troops under George Bush invaded Panama, then hijacked Noriega to Florida, where he was convicted of drug charges. Noriega is still in prison to this day.
“When they set up this chart in the courtroom, the judge said, what’s that? We had Bush connected to this drug operation,” recalls Martin. Martin says that later CIA operative Frank Snepp joined the defense team (Rubino himself was a former CIA agent) and gave daily reports to George Bush Sr. on how the trial against Noriega was proceeding. Martin says he overheard him on the phone talking to Bush in Rubino’s office. “I was real naive,” says Martin about his participation in the Noriega trial.
“I made the assumption that this is what they wanted” — to have a flow chart of personnel, covert operations, as well as banks and other front companies and how the schemes actually worked. Martin notes that they didn’t really expect him to use the real names of people and front companies. “Investigative reporter Dave Lyons from the Miami Herald told me this is what people can understand,” Martin continues. “Graphs and charts help the average person understand complex conspiracies Martin jokingly concludes, “Charts and graphs — bad. Shredders – good.”
In a video of the artist shown at the exhibition, Andy Mann asked Lombard in February 1997, “Do you fear for your life?” Lombardi didn’t answer the question. Instead he said, “This is a way I can map the political and social terrain in which I live.” According to his friends, Lombardi told them that he was being followed — just before his death. Lombardi also described his work as “visualized fields of information [which] started out as corporate diagrams.”
In the end, Mark Lombardi’s contribution to culture is his relentless search for the truth. He was a pioneer in the cartography of realpolitik, mapping international networks of crime which include high-level government officials and shady so-called “business” men. Lombardi’s legacy is his depiction of geo-political realities, the essence of global criminal conspiracies. No theory, just conspiracy –- conspiracies that continue to haunt the planet into the 21st century.”
BUYER BEWARE (LO-RES CONSPIRACY THEORY)
Most helpful critical review: Lombardi’s Legacy Demands A Bigger Book
“I really like Mark Lombardi’s artwork, but buyer beware–the dimensions of this book are a mere 11 x 9.2 x 0.4 inches. Mr. Lombardi’s work is relatively large by comparison. For this book, his pieces have been shrunk to where it is almost impossible to read what’s been written in the nodes of the networks. Each featured piece is instead explained by the authors, with the occasional enlargement of a section for clarification.
This seems contrary to the spirit of Mr. Lombardi’s work. I was expecting this book to at least have fold-out pages, but no such luck. The artwork is completely subordinate to the authors’ verbose text. So if you want to READ about Mark Lombardi and his work, and get a little information design history lesson in too, then this book will do just fine. But if you want to actually LOOK at Mark Lombardi’s artwork, look elsewhere. I think I will be reselling this book.”
