Monday 4.4 at 20:00
In her lecture Rona Yefman will give an introduction to her latest works, which are based on relationships, their growth and development during a long process of friendship with a variety of characters. With each protagonist Yefman builds a different relationship that leads the work, based on the context of the political, historical, and psychological as well as the personal aspects. This lecture will mostly discuss the specific project Martha Bouk 2002-2009 that was recently re-edited and will be presented in the upcoming exhibition “Prolonged Exposure”, to be opened at the CCA.

Monday 11.4 at 20:00
In the first part of his lecture Christoph Weber will focus on key-works that introduce his artistic practices as a conceptual sculptor. He interweaves political, historical and psychoanalytical discourses with sculptural methods and classic materials. His last solo show “loose concrete”, exhibited in Vienna in 2010, questioned concrete as a prime material of the 20th Century as well as Israel’s relation to this material. In the second part he will put those recent works up for discussion.
