Klaus Lutz Film Screening

Sunday May 18th 2014 | 4-5:30pm

Swiss-born artist and filmmaker Klaus Lutz, who died in New York in 2009, left a remarkable body of work, characterized by a unique cinematic vision. Shot in 16mm and using animation and multiple exposures, his films are reminiscent of those of Georges Méliès and the 1920s avant-garde, yet they create a universe of their own. Enjoy a selection of his most iconic films, spectacularly projected on a large balloon.

Dada Pop-Up Exhibition: The Absurdities of our Times
Dada Pop-Up is an exhibition featuring uncensored, spontaneous performances and exchanges as they would have taken place at Cabaret Voltaire (Zürich) almost one hundred years ago, when artists and otherwise curious people let their minds run free to see what would happen. Featured artists will present short vignettes rekindling a time when art was created in a fun and communal spirit.

Born at Zurich’s Cabaret Voltaire in 1916, the Dada movement quickly spread to cities such as New York, Berlin and Paris. Enter a “nomadic” tent and discover the visions, actions, scandals and love stories of 165 Dadaists: Jean Arp, Hugo Ball, André Breton, Marcel Duchamp, Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, Francis Picabia, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Tristan Tzara, among others. The multimedia installation features the “Starry Heaven of Dada,” mapping the journey of this international art movement from 1916 to 1923.
