Going Places with Stories – A talk with Laurie Anderson

Going Places with Stories – A talk with Laurie Anderson

05.03.2017 15:00

Where does reality end and fiction begin? Since her emergence in the underground performance and experimental media arts scene of the 1970s in New York, Laurie Anderson has consistently eluded the boundaries of different worlds—of genres, language, gender, and media. In current times of increasing encroachment on transversal thinking, as well as general confusion about political and aesthetic values, we urgently need voices that attune our sensibilities to alternate realities. This is what Laurie Anderson does through her artistic practice: telling stories across a wide variety of media and modes of expression, and providing a space to inhabit imaginary places that bring about change in our perception of daily reality. Join us during the closing weekend of ever elusive – thirty years of transmediale for a discussion and survey of Anderson’s career spanning multimedia work shown at past transmediale festivals to her current experiments in VR.

For this event headphones with simultaneous translation into German are available.
With friendly support of ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen.
