Jörg Heiser at Austrian Cultural Forum


On Wednesday June 25th at 7:00 p.m., the Goethe-Institut New York and the Austrian Cultural Forum will co-host a conversation between Jörg Heiser and Brian Sholis, editor at Artforum.com. The event will begin with the presentation of Heiser’s new publication titled All of a Sudden Things that Matter in Contemporary Art. Earlier this year Heiser’s writing also appeared in another book, Romantic Conceptualism, featuring the work of Collier Schorr (Art:21 Season 2, Loss & Desire). The photographs of Schorr are also included in the exhibition, History Will Repeat Itself Strategies of Re-enactment in Contemporary Art, originally opening at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin and now traveling to Goethe-Institut Hong Kong. For those who might not have visited the ACF building on 11 East 52nd Street, take the virtual tour on the menu to see the intriguing double-height theater located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This narrow and dynamic building, designed by the Austrian born architect Raimund Abraham, is a poignant reflection of romantic conceptualism. The seating is limited to 80 and reservations for this free event can be made at 212-439-8691.
