Artists Daniel Young & Christian Giroux discuss buildings on film at the TIFF Bell Lightbox
As their newly commissioned film installation Berlin 2012/1983 debuts in the HSBC Gallery at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on June 12th, Daniel Young and Christian Giroux join curator and scholar Axel Wieder, Director of Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation in Stockholm for this special Free Screen artists’ talk at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 18, 2015. Young and Giroux will present a clip from the work, discuss its architectural context – in its juxtaposition of buildings constructed in contemporary Berlin with those erected during the era of the divided city – and screen their previous films Camera Tracking a Spiral Drawn Between the Two Curved Towers of Viljo Revell’s Toronto City Hall (commissioned for Nuit Blanche in 2010) and Every Building, or Site, that a Building Permit was Issued for a New Building in Toronto in 2006 to reflect on their relationship to the new film.
The artists’ talk is presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Toronto.
