Christopher Krause: Obraz + strukture

The performative lecture Faces + Structures by German performer, dramaturgue and theorist Christopher Krause, was based on the reserach of DIVA Station video archive.

Video art by itself historically implicates a kind of crossover between the logic of the artistic image and the image of mass media. Faces + Structures tries to actualize this artistic aprproach by addresseing the fundamental split of the gaze in somebody who watches: the spectator/artist; and something that is watched: the artwork. The lecture deals with this split in an essayistic way, in order to ask what it can mean for the role of artistic production today and what it can mean to talk about artworks.
