[SPACE OF SURVEILLANCE] Michael Klier’s The Giant (Der Riese)

April 12, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| $5

co-sponsored by U of A German Studies

Comprised entirely of material generated by surveillance cameras, Der Riese is a rhapsodic but ominous work depicting the world with a cold mechanical spirit. That nothing can escape the chill stare of surveillance is only the starting point of Klier’s tape. People come and go in public places-parks, department stores, banks, airports- like lifeless ciphers, unaware of the authoritarian stare of the camera. The flattened field of vision, black-and-white imagery, and sterile quality of the technology make the inhabitants of Der Riese emptied shadows. Lyrically constructed sequences unfold to the strains of Mahler and Wagner, adding an almost heroic mood to this dark work.
