MoMA PS1 presents an evening with Alejandro Jodorowsky, including a conversation and a public tarot reading. An internationally acclaimed director, actor, playwright, composer, and poet, Jodorowsky is celebrated for such films as El Topo (1971), The Holy Mountain (1973), and The Dance of Reality (2013).
For this event, Jodorowsky is joined by Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 and Chief Curator at Large at The Museum of Modern Art, for a conversation about Jodorowsky's forthcoming film Endless Poetry, the autobiographical sequel to The Dance of Reality, which looks at his time as a young poet in Santiago and features his son, Adan Jodorowsky, playing his father as a young man exploring his interest in tarot reading.
For many years, Jodorowsky has been dedicated to the practice of tarot as a source of psychological insight and creative inspiration. As part of this special program, he honors our audience with a one-time public reading for 22 people. A disciple of the Tarot de Marseilles, which originated in the 16th century, Jodorowsky will use a tarot deck that he helped design to introduce his audience to the cards and how they can teach one "to create."
This event will be livestreamed.
