ARTIST TALK WITH JOE RAMIREZ, JUTTA ALLMENDINGER, AND OLE BÆKHØJ, MODERATED BY SHELLY KUPFERBERG

On five consecutive weekends in August, audiences can take in THE GOLD PROJECTIONS by Californian artist Joe Ramirez at Pierre Boulez Saal, starting at sunset.

On two convex discs, suspended in utter stillness from the elliptic architecture of Frank Gehry’s, painting and film are fused into a fascinating visual experience. In a laborious process, Ramirez had first gilded the wooden panels, and, by projecting film sequences onto them, converted the discs into unique image carriers with the ability of changing the imagery of the projected material.

Some of the film sequences were created in cooperation with the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (WZB).

On August 23, artist Joe Ramirez, Jutta Allmendinger, President of WZB und Thomas Mann Fellow 2018, and Ole Bækhøj, Creative Director of Pierre Boulez Saal, will discuss their respective take on THE GOLD PROJECTIONS. Shelly Kupferberg is going to moderate the exchange.

Following the discussion, visitors will have the opportunity to witness THE GOLD PROJECTIONS in the presence of the artist.
