Event: The Marienbad Sessions - Maya Schweizer: LIEUX DE MÉMOIRE, DESIRE AND FILM

  • EFA Project Space 2nd Floor 323 W 39th St New York, NY, 10018 United States

This evening will feature a screening of short films by Berlin-based artist Maya Schweizer and conversation with curator James Voorhies about her interest in the role of memorials and monuments as embodiments of historical events and biography. Schweizer’s recent film A Memorial, a Synagogue, a Bridge and a Church (2012), which is included in the exhibition Last Year at Marienbad redux, will be discussed within the context of films by figures such as Alexander Kluge and Harun Farocki.

The Marienbad Sessions is an integrated public program that seeks to transform the exhibition site of Last Year at Marienbad redux into a learning site where real-time engagement with the public intersects visually and conceptually among works of art on exhibit.

Artist travel generously supported by Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
