Lecture and Screening | Boris Groys: Immortal Bodies

Thurs | 7pm

“That is why contemporary art aims at making the corpse look increasingly corpse-like — in order to make impossible further projections of the soul onto works of art.”
-Boris Groys, The Immortal Bodies

In conjunction with Work Hard: Selections by Valentin Carron, please join us for a presentation of Boris Groys’s 2007 video lecture, Immortal Bodies. Groys will introduce the work, as well as answer questions immediately following.
