Anri Sala Thursday, July 28th at 9:00 p.m.
Recently a guest of the DAAD in Berlin, Anri Sala has gained worldwide recognition with a number of film and video works. His earlier narrative films are poetic portrayals of multi-layered personal stories, reflecting larger social and political contexts. In his more recent video work, Sala concentrates on situations and fragments of everyday life; these have a unique and ambiguous metaphorical quality. Born in Tirana, Albania in 1974, Anri Sala now lives in Berlin and Paris.
Jörg Heiser / Christoph Dettmeyer Thursday, August 11th at 9:00 p.m.
Jörg Heiser will introduce the work of the artist Christoph Dettmeyer, followed by a conversation and a live “Country Karaoke” performance by Dettmeyer.

Heiser also curated Funky Lessons, an exhibition, publication and series of events originally presented at Büro Friedrich and Münzclub, Berlin in 2004. Christoph Dettmeyer is a Berlin-based artist, working mainly with video installation and performance.
