Michel Majerus Estate, Knaackstrasse 12, D-10405 Berlin

Please note that the conversation will be held in the Estate’s courtyard. Seating and space for the talk will be limited and available on a first come basis.


On Saturday, April 27 please join us in Berlin for a matinée and conversation with Cory Arcangel and Dragan Espenschied, Rhizome Preservation Director. Arcangel and Espenschied will discuss Let’s Play Majerus G3, a new project by Arcangel, opening at the Michel Majerus Estate on Thursday, April 25.  

Let’s Play Majerus G3 features a previously unexplored aspect of the artist’s archive: a Macintosh PowerBook G3. Led by the artist Cory Arcangel, this project takes as its point of departure the laptop that Michel Majerus used in his late career, now reactivated through an emulation undertaken in cooperation Rhizome's Preservation Department.

By examining this crucial tool, Let’s Play Majerus G3—an expansive program comprising the exhibition at the Michel Majerus Estate, a talk, a performance, and a YouTube series—provides unprecedented access to Majerus’ digital studio and the approaches that informed it, representing a significant development in the understanding of his oeuvre. The project allows a uniquely first-hand glimpse, through the eyes of a fellow artist, into this rich primary source.

At the same time, Let’s Play Majerus G3 lends consideration to the increasing importance and possibilities of the digital in archival work and interrogates the ways in which these holdings crucially factor into authoring art-historical narratives surrounding 21st-century protagonists.
