An Evening with Dorit Margreiter

Monday, October 22, 2012, 7:00 p.m.

Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

Dorit Margreiter (Austrian, b. 1967) has developed an artistic practice that examines how art, architecture, design, film, electronic media, and performance correspond and relate to one another. Her widely renowned installation zentrum (2004–11)— currently on view in the exhibition Performing Histories (1)—unfolds over a period of time in various mediums, including a 16mm film installation, typography, and posters. The work revisits modernity’s relationship with the moving image and design. For this evening, Margreiter discusses the context and evolution of zentrum, which was recently acquired by MoMA. 90 min.

In conjunction with the exhibition Performing Histories (1)
