Reading and Artist Talk

Dominique Hurth’s exhibition foreword (language in the darkness of the world through inverse images) formed the backdrop and setting for a reading by the artist on images and their captions.

Focusing on the strobe-like effect of images, pausing during the act of reading and seeing the images while emerging into them, Hurth proposed a subjective narration between histories of technology, fiction, perception and exhibition, in which Auguste Rodin’s wife met Wernher von Braun carrying a V-2 rocket on his shoulder like a boom box or Georges Méliès lunar landscapes.

Dominique HURTH (*1985 in Colmar/FR), lives in Berlin. She completed studies at Saint Martin’s School of Art, London (BA 2005), at the Academy of Arts, Berlin (MA 2007) and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts, Paris (MA Visual Arts 2009) and was a Fine Art Researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2010/11).
