Raflost & Steina – Artist´s talk, Hafnarhús, Wednesday 23 May 2 p.m.
Wednesday 23 May 2 p.m. Steina participates in an artist´s talk at Reykjavik Art Museum – Hafnarhus. Steina is the special guest of the annual electronic arts festival Raflost 2012 which is held in collaboration with (I)ndependent People at Reykjavik Art Festival.
Steina Vasulka is a pioneer of video art starting in the late 1960s. She is also a classically trained violinist and is using her musical background in many of her works. When Steina and her husband, Woody Vasulka, stumbled into video art in 1969 they already owned an audio tape recorder. Audio and video was, in their view, always a parallel and interwoven art material. More information about Steina: http://www.vasulka.org
The event takes place in English.
