A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Big Picture

Places / Projections
"Big Picture" is the title of a work by Jason Rhoades, a Californian artist who died young in 2006. In an ironic reversal of the title, it shows a large garden on a small flat screen. This lavishly illustrated catalogue presents twelve film and video installations by international artists, each of whom takes a different approach to the cinematographic installation as a genre. The focus is on the importance of space to film and video art installations, which as media art have to redefine their performance parameters at each new presentation.
