“I will discuss my film/video work in terms of the aesthetic and ideological missteps I have made. It will perhaps be shown that my regrets constitute a parallel body of work.” (Daniel Cockburn)
Canadian artist Daniel Cockburn scrutinizes the popular medium of the artist talk in a critical, yet humorous way.
In cooperation with the Embassy of Canada
A collaborative project with students from the Art History Institute, University of Cologne.

We find ourselves in the United States. A smartly dressed lady is guiding a tour through the museum and has all kinds of information about the objects. Sounds like the usual kind of guide, if the lady in the suit were not Andrea Fraser—an artist playing the role of art mediator dedicated to the relationship involving art, institution, and audience.
The history of this exciting complicity and its protagonists was the subject of a practical seminar at the Art History Institute at the University of Cologne in summer 2011.
In the coming months, the students will built upon this course by developing a new series of thematic guided tours at KAI 10, in which they will articulate their individual perspectives of the shows. In the process they will bring to light amazing background information and unexpected contextual associations of the projects. Andrea Fraser would be pleased.

To preview our upcoming show, Expanded Territory, KAI 10 will present Duncan Jones’ film, Moon. The process of unfolding the human psyche in a place with a special atmosphere plays a role in both the film and the works that will be seen in the exhibition. Opening the evening is the film Meet the Eye, by artist Aïda Ruilova.
Chosen by students at the Art History Institute at the University of Cologne, the film kicks off a series of events programmed by young art historians at KAI 10.
