Douglas Gordon (& special guests): DOLCE AND GABBANA OR…
Mittwoch, 27. November 2013, 19 Uhr, Aula

Douglas Gordon, born 1966 in Glasgow, Scotland, is one of the most influential contemporary video artists. Performances, sculptural installations and conceptual texts also number among his modes of expression. With his analyses and reconstructions of images drawn from collective memory and everyday culture, he lays bare fundamental patterns of perception. His oeuvre is dominated by polarities such as life and death, good and evil, guilt and innocence, as well as temptation and fear. Gordon won the Turner Prize in 1996 among many other art prizes and the following year he participated in the Venice Biennale.
He is Professor of Film at the Städelschule since 2010.
