Boris Groys will introduce a screening of his video essays Religion and Medium (2006) and Iconoclastic Delights (2002) this Saturday, January 14th. These video works see Groys combining spoken and written narration with film and video footage to consider how the evolution of contemporary media culture has impacted our visual imaginations. As Groys writes, “…the presented videos problematize the relationship between text and image that usually seems to be guaranteed by the structuring of the video material. In fact, these videos transmit no information — rather they reflect on the difficulties of such a transmission.”

This event marks the close of the exhibition “Out of town: Andrei Monastyrski & Collective Actions” curated by Groys.
