Eye-Gazes/New Media 1
22.3 – 25.5 1975
The ambition was to showcase the hall as a workshop right from the inauguration, where approximately 20 international artists working with new media such as text, film, video, and photography could demonstrate the possibilities of Malmö Konsthall. Katharina Sieverding, a former student of the legendary artist Joseph Beuys, is seen here installing her work. Her photographic self-portraits, part of the Katharina Sieverding Series 196/1973, were assembled to create a gigantic image.
Fred Forest, who, in one of his video works, live-streamed city life outside Malmö Konsthall, was accompanied by the French artist Paul-Armand Gette, a close friend and source of inspiration for several of konsthall Director Eje Högestätt’s notable exhibition projects. Jean Sellem, an artist and gallerist based in Lund, engaged in conversation with the two French artists Jacques Charlier and Christian Boltanski, both of whom participated in the “Moments/New Media 1” exhibition.
