LES DÜSSELDORFS brings together video works by artists who work or have worked in Düsseldorf. The program reflects the rich and lively history of Düsseldorf video art, which was shaped by Nam June Paik, Nan Hoover and Marcel Odenbach, among others. In addition, there are activist, musical, sub- and countercultural positions that have written history from and about Düsseldorf with the medium of video. A long-lost feminist performance, an artistic statement against the Cold War, critical reflections on urban development and a contemplation on isolation during the Corona pandemic present video as a non-conformist tool of contemporaneity.
With works by ELA EIS, Sachli Golkar and Till Hofrichter, Nan Hoover, Axel Klepsch, Eric Lanz, Norbert Meissner and Alexander Weil, Michalis Nicolaides, Marcel Odenbach, Gudrun Teich, Myriam Thyes. Curated by Darija Šimunović.
