Forum: Hito Steyerl in conversation with Tone Hansen
Several of Hito Steyerl's documentary film essays will be screened, and the artist speaks with curator and writer Tone Hansen at Hordaland Art Centre.
Through a conversation Steyerl's practice, where she examines social and political processes through working at the interface between film and visual art, will be discussed. Migration, cultural globalisation, feminist and political theory, as well as media are central themes of her artistic and theoretical works. In her documentary film essays she merges her own imagery with archival and fictional material, in which she takes a critical artistic position towards the circulation of images, and the relation between evidence and truth.
Where and when: Tuesday 8 November 2011 at Hordaland Art
