Jonas Mekas & Douglas Gordon

Event24 November 2015, 19:00Aula, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Jonas Mekas in conversation with the artist Douglas Gordon who takes Mekas' Diaries "I Had Nowhere to Go" as the starting point for a new work. 

Jonas Mekas (*1922) is a legendary filmmaker, author, poet and co-founder of the Anthology Film Archives in New York. Mekas was born in Lithuania, he came to Brooklyn via Germany in 1949 and began shooting his first films there. Mekas developed a form of film diary in which he recorded moments of his daily life. He became the barometer of the New York art scene and a pioneer of American avant-garde cinema. Every week, starting in 1958, he published his legendary “Movie Journal” column in The Village Voice, writing on a range of subjects that were by no means restricted to the world of film. He conducted numerous interviews with artists like Andy Warhol, Susan Sontag, John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Erick Hawkins, and Nam June Paik. 

Douglas Gordon’s practice encompasses video and film, installation, sculpture, photography, and text. Through his work, Gordon investigates human conditions like memory and the passage of time, as well as universal dualities such as life and death, good and evil, right and wrong.

Gordon’s oeuvre has been exhibited globally and his film works have been presented at many competitions, including the Festival de Cannes, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the International Venice Film Festival,. Gordon received the 1996 Turner Prize, the Premio 2000 prize for best young artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale, and the 1998 Hugo Boss Prize. Most recently, in May 2008 he was awarded the Roswitha Haftmann Prize by the Kunsthaus Zurich and, in the same year, the Käthe-Kollwitz Prize from the Akademie der Künste, Berlin. Gordon was the International Juror at the 65th International Venice Film Festival, and in 2012 he was the Jury president of CinemaXXI at the 7th International Rome Film Festival.

Born in Scotland, Gordon lives and works in Berlin and Glasgow and teaches film at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. He is represented internationally by Gagosian Gallery, as well as Until then in Paris, Galerie Eva Presenhuber in Zürich, and Dvir Gallery in Tel Aviv.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
