The Tyler College of Artwork and Structure at Temple College is happy to welcome German filmmaker Hito Steyerl as its 2023 Wolgin Visiting Artist and Lecturer. The transferring picture artist and cultural critic will ship a public handle on October 11 from 6–7:30pm (EDT) at Rock Hall Auditorium (Rock Corridor, 1715 N. Broad Road) in Philadelphia and through livestream.
A provocative thinker whose work primarily focuses on media, expertise, and the worldwide circulation of photographs, Steyerl was listed as probably the most influential individual within the up to date artwork world in 2017 by ArtReview.
Steyerl grounds her investigative apply within the proliferation of digital photographs and their large-scale implications, aiming to counsel a subversive and democratizing potential in mass distribution. She has remarked, “Artwork is quite powerless… on the extent of what it reveals. It’s extra highly effective on the extent of the way it reveals.”
Her critically acclaimed work in movie and new media has been exhibited on the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, MMCA Seoul, the Museum of Trendy Artwork in New York, the Serpentine Galleries in London, the Shanghai Biennale, Venice Biennale, and Istanbul Biennale, amongst different venues.
A number of her essays is summarized in 4 books: Die Farbe der Wahrheit (The Colour of Reality, 2008), The Wretched of the Display (2012), Past Illustration (2016), and Obligation Free Artwork – Artwork within the Age of Planetary Civil Wars (2017, 2018).
Steyerl teaches new media artwork at Berlin College of the Arts.
The Wolgin Lecture is introduced by Temple Contemporary, Tyler’s middle for exhibitions and public programming. It brings influential artists and thinkers to campus to work with Tyler college students and current a public lecture every year.
Registration is required to attend in individual or to view the livestream on October 11, 6–7:30pm.
