Screening | Ursula Biemann: Geomorphic Videos
Monday, March 5, 2018
Anthology Film Archives
32 2nd Ave
Tickets Available through Anthology Film Archives
Drawing attention to the social and biological micro-dynamics at work in the massive physical encroachments of resource extraction and engineering, artist Ursula Biemann elaborates far-reaching territorial and climatic transformations in her videos. Her recent fieldwork has taken her to the Amazon and the Arctic region. Engaging with the political ecology of oil, ice, and water, the artist interweaves vast cinematic landscapes with documentary footage, science fiction poetry, and academic findings to narrate a changing planetary reality. In this screening and presentation, Biemann will discuss her artistic practice in the projects Forest Law, Subatlantic, and Acoustic Ocean, raising questions regarding the entanglement of aesthetics, ecology, and geopolitics.
This event is organized by Swiss Institute in collaboration with ICI on the occasion of the exhibition The Ocean After Nature on view at The New School’s Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons School of Design (February 9 – April 17, 2018).
