AE/MAETH, a new 3-channel video installation in collaboration with Detlef Weitz, reveals the myth of artificial life in cinema history. The video collage is based on snippets from 60 movies that depict humunculi, cyborgs, robots, androids and of course: golems. The work was produced for the thematic exhibition about the golem – the most prominent of Jewish legendary figures – at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
Screening of the recent video works Double Make-Up and HYPER and Leipzig release of the new catalogue Cameo. Julia Schäfer, curator of «I’ll Be Your Mirror», will be chatting with the artist about his recent video works, their connection to the current exhibition and how to transfer moving images into a book.
