MoMA presents an evening with Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Rosa Barba, following the April 10 premiere of her performance White Museum – Live as part of Sunday Sessions at MoMA PS1. Barba's work investigates the fundamental properties of film, exploring cinema—its forms, histories, and technical apparatuses—and the material properties of celluloid. This self-reflexivity underpins her film installations and sculptural interventions, which reflect on language, memory, and obsolescence. This evening’s film program, spanning work produced over the past decade, includes a selection of Barba’s landscape films, experimental documentaries, and text-based works. The artist will be joined in conversation with Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art.

This film accompanies Modern Mondays.
