The Art of Living is a one-night screening taking place across three venues located in Beijing, Berlin, and New York on August 13.
Venues include SCREEN and I: project space in Beijing, Artnet in New York, and at Loris in Berlin, and features videos by Michael Smith, Joshua White, Kenya Robinson, Tuo Wang, Tzuhuan Lin, Musquiqui Chihying, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Manuela Johanna Covini, Brita Thie, Lin Ke, Tan Tian, Katy Roseland, and more.
The event is inspired by Marta Minujin, Allan Kaprow and Wolf Vostell’s 1966 staged international project “Three Countries Happening”, which took place in New York, Berlin, and Buenos Aires where some of the happenings occurred concurrently and were aired on channel 13 in Buenos Aires. The press release states, “To celebrate this post-digital condition that has changed the way art is practiced, we will stage simultaneous screenings in New York, Beijing, and Berlin, bringing together artists living in the these art metropolises”.
The event is meant to also address how the internet has changed and expanded studio practice into the realm of social media.
