Berlin-based artist Hito Steyerl is presenting selected works at London’s ICA, opening with a private view March 4 and running March 5 to April 6.
Launching with a screening and introduction by Nina Power on March 5, the exhibition surveys an acclaimed career in video focussing on feminism, militarisation and the digital image through five film installations.
They’ll include a new work, Liquidity Inc. (2014), as well as How Not to Be Seen: A Fucking Didactic Educational .MOV File (2013), Guards (2012) and two lecture performances from 2013, I Dreamed a Dream and Is the Museum a Battlefield. That’s all from a body of work exploring what Brian Kuan Wood describes as a world that’s gone beyond the virtual and into “a confusing and possibly alien concreteness that we are only beginning to understand”.
Read Steyerl’s ‘In Defense of the Poor Image’ on e-flux and see the ICA website for details. **
