This lecture is SOLD OUT. Tickets for the dinner (without lecture) are still available until noon Wednesday 2 November 2016.
The 2016 Benno Premsela Lecture will be given by artist Hito Steyerl.
Hito Steyerl is one of the most intriguing artists working today. With her penetrating films and texts, she positions herself in a discourse that transcends the individual fields of art, philosophy, design and politics. She analyses prevailing social, cultural and financial concepts and speculates on the influence of digitisation on society.
Steyerl lives in Berlin and has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2016); the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid (2015); the ICA in London, Artists Space in New York and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven (2014).
