4pm Michel Auder Talk and screening
For over forty years pioneering artist Michel Auder has compulsively recorded the events of his life. He will speak about how his work relates to notions of time, followed by a screening of several shorter works. Embracing a variety of roles—including silent participant, obsessive voyeur, discreet accomplice, and simple observer—he creates brashly self-referential films and videos. Through raw and archival footage his work blurs the boundaries between what we remember and what we leave behind.
"In Auder's universe, something that "is not a true account" could still have happened, by slipping into one of those bright crevices where art and life intermingle. Neither accuracy nor happiness is ever striven for, if they figure in as criteria at all. Auder is the first to undo any plausibility, and hence nostalgia, to which his works could claim." Lars Bang Larsen - Art Historian, University of Copenhagen
