video stills from Junctures I

My residency at the Frankfurter Kunstverein is coming to an end. I have been working on a project, Junctures 1: Frankfurt, which combines video interviews and mapping technology to examine migration, information technology and the 21st century globalized city. Junctures I is the first of a series of projects that I hope to continue in Asia, North America and elsewhere.

Artists Talk with Christian de Lutz at the Frankfurter Kunstverein
06 April at 7PM

His work combines photography, printmaking, video and installation with computer based media. Recent projects have focused on the connections between globalization and information. During his stay at the Deutsche Börse Residency Program he is researching the perceptions of those for whom Frankfurt has become a point of transit or migration. The core of the project are a series of interviews and 'mappings' exploring Frankfurt's position as a base for international finance and trade, commerce and culture.

Coming, going, settling down. The city as hub, the city as staging point,
The city began as a marketplace.

Creative Rights. On Appropriation, Copyright and Copyleft investigates questions concerning the use, re-use and misuse of images and information in the contemporary art world from artistic, legal, political and philosophical viewpoints.

Since the late 1970s appropriation of images and information by such artists as Sherrie Levine and Richard Prince has become a common and accepted technique, part and parcel of postmodernism's critical approach. Indeed it follows a tradition that goes back through pop art and nouveau realisme to Dada and cubist collage. Not without ethical, aesthetic and legal controversy, a number of law cases involving appropriation seems to have increased in recent years involving artists such as Jeff Koons, Richard Prince and Shepard Fairey

The exhibition Creative Rights consists of three parts: The exhibition with four artistic positions, the Creative Rights Library with extensive material on the presented artists and other recent law cases as well as a workshop on the theme of copyright.
