After Berlin + Rotterdam, Keren Cytter takes Toronto @imagesfestival
Why did #KerenCytter rename her performance “Anke is Gone“ to “I eat pickles at your funeral”? ... @imagesfestival
Ask her @ImagesFestival premiere Thurs at 7 at Al Green. Second show Friday! Guaranteed fun from Berlin-based Video + performance artist.
@ImagesFestival 204 Spadina pop-up gallery: Duncan Campbell's video "Arbeit", a collage of stills ... http://www.guardian.co.uk...... on the man behind the Euro: Hans Tietmeyer, former head of Deutsche Bundesbank, going up in smoke. So timely:
"Currency is a reflection of what a nation desires." @imagesfestival 204 gallery
(Remember Campbell last year @ImagesFestival? Quirky DeLorean biopic dissected the decline of the auto empire, + sports car in front of AGO.)
"Arbeit" @imagesfestival reminds me of James Benning's "Ruhr" in tackling (post-)industrial Western Germany and its values ...
Speaking of Benning: My perfect night @ImagesFestival tomorrow--James Benning and Elke Marhöfer…Who can resist comparison of Thoreau's and unabomber’s cabins plus a piece called “No, I am not a toad, I am a turtle!” @ImagesFestival.
More on the crisis, the euro, debt & trust issues in our series GOETHE FILMS @ TIFF Box this fall!
If @ImagesFestival is not enough video for u, @vtape shows 2 new pieces by Daniel Kötter, Goethe guest 2011. 19th at 5pm, 401 Richmond.
