October Talks: Johan Grimonprez. All Memory Is Theft?

Johan Grimonprez, All Memory Is Theft?

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities. Grimonprez delivers an artist talk and screening in the context of his participation in the exhibition Film As Muse.
