Keren Cytter

Lecture: June 24, 2020 - 7 pm CEST (online *)

Keren Cytter (Tel Aviv 1977) creates films, video installations, and drawings that represent social realities through experimental modes of storytelling. Characterised by a non-linear, cyclical logic Cytter’s films consist of multiple layers of images; conversation; monologue, and narration systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation schemata. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, these montages of impressions, memories, and imaginings are poetic and self-referential in composition. In addition to her video and performance work, Cytter is also a critically acclaimed writer: she published five novels. Selected solo exhibitions of Cytter’s work include Museion, Bolzano (2019); SCHLOSS, Oslo (2017); Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2015), Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2014); Tate Modern Oil Tanks, London (2012), Avalanche, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2011).
