In this talk Marc Glöde will discuss the role of the filmic medium in Siah Armajani’s artistic practice and how the artist’s experimentation with computer-based graphics in the early 1970s not only expanded his practice in relation to public space and architecture to new territory, but also paved the way for a new aesthetic field. Using Armajani’s experimental films on line structures as a point of departure, Dr Glöde will also cover films by preeminent artists/filmmakers presented in the film programme that accompanies the exhibition, as well as those beyond, who produced important films relating to Armajani’s other tropes of interest: bridges, houses, and gardens.
