MoMA at the Gramercy Theatre presents
Monday, November 24, 8:00
An Evening with Bjorn Melhus (Berlin)

Berlin-based artist Bjorn Melhus recontextualizes images, sound, and
narrative elements of feature films and television talk shows in his films,
videos and installations. The artist performs all the roles in each work,
creating multiple doppelgangers in an uncanny interpretation of the
relationship between fictional and real-life characters and the construction
of identity through the absorption of mass media. The program includes the
U.S. premiere of his film Auto Center Drive (2003), in which the artist
examines the impact of American feature films on memories and longing; and
screenings and discussion of The Oral Thing (2001), No Sunshine (1997),
Prime Time (2001) and Again and Again (1998).

Dedicated to experimentation with cinematic form and content, MediaScope
presents emerging and recognized artists who discuss their work with the
audience. The program explores filmmaking, video making, Web-based,
installation, and digital art practices.

Upcoming MediaScopes:
Pablo Helguera, Dec 8
Mary Ellen Strom and Ann Carlson, Dec 15
