Conversation | Scenes in the Archive with Antje Krause-Wahl and Nadine Hahn-Rübel
Fri | 12PM
Please join us for a conversation between art historians Antje Krause-Wahl and Nadine Hahn-Rübel held on the occasion of Walter Pfeiffer’s Swiss Institute survey. In 1974, Pfeiffer took part in the exhibition, Transformer: Aspekte der Travestie curated by Jean-Christophe Ammann at Kunstmuseum Luzern. Transformer is known today as one of the first exhibitions in Europe to have presented queer subject positions. In 2001, Jean-Christophe Ammann donated his personal archive to the Museum MMK für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt am Main. In a look at the archive and its ephemera, the lecture will explore Ammann and Pfeiffer’s social and artistic scene of 1970s and early 1980s.
