Artist & Author Talk—Barbara Kasten: Architecture & Film (2015–2020)

Join Chicago-based artist Barbara Kasten, editor Stephanie Cristello, and author Humberto Moro (Dia Art Foundation) in advance of the book Barbara Kasten: Architecture & Film (2015–2020) to be published in the fall of 2022 by Skira. Since the 1970s, Kasten (b. Chicago, 1936) has developed her expansive photographic practice through the lens of sculpture, painting, theater, textile, and installation. Assembling a group of leading writers—including Irena Haiduk, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Mimi Zeiger—the publication features newly commissioned texts that further the discourse into Kasten’s varied practice with a focus on work from the past five years alongside previously unpublished projects from the 1960s to the present. The online space of this event, created by designer Tal Erez and curator Dan Handel, explores virtual interiors as well as interim videos inspired by Barbara Kasten’s visual worlds.

Presented in partnership with Skira Editore and Manifest Institute.
