Please RSVP Here 

Join us for a screening of Das Blut, im Fruchtfleisch gerinnend beim Birnenbiss by Tobias Madison, a remake of the 1971 film Emperor Tomato Ketchup. The original film was created by Japanese director Shūji Terayama (1935 – 83) as a reaction to and critique of the political dogmatism of the growing Maoist student movement. By depicting a revolution of children over adults, the film uses political satire to expose the movement’s stated goals as a repetition of the historical roots of totalitarian systems. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the artist.

This public program is part of A Disappearing Act (Feb 16 – Feb 27, 2017), an exhibition developed from archival research in an effort to reconstruct historical works that were either lost, fragmented, never realized, or inherently ephemeral.
