2006, Stefan Roemer, Germany, 100 min.
- Wed, Sep 21st 8:15pm
Director Roemer engages in a series of in-depth exchanges with the world’s most prominent conceptual artists in a film that makes up a veritable history of art without an object. Through intellectual and witty conversations, the film establishes the fluid and ever-changing nature of the theory and practice of conceptual art, even as it suggests that the art of the documentary is equally fluid in its form. Interviews include: Sol LeWitt, Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, Yoko Ono, Gregg Bordowitz, Valie Export, Andrea Fraser, Hartmut Bitomsky, Vito Acconci, and many more. Presented in cooperation with Expo Chicago and the Goethe-Institut, Chicago. In English and German with English subtitles. (BS)
SEPTEMBER 21: Director Stefan Roemer will be present for a post-screening conversation with Matthew Witkovsky, Richard and Ellen Sandor Chair and Curator, Department of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago.
