|Artist's Talk with Laura Horelli - (28.8.2014)|
|In her artist's talk Laura Horelli speaks about the development of her new installation "The Jokinen Trial" (2014) among other topics. The story of the emigration of Finns to the United States is a central subject in Horelli's new work. The photographs and audio texts presented are excerpts from Horelli's research into the life of August Jokinen, a Finnish communist who immigrated to the United States in 1916 and was accused of racism in a show trial in 1931. In her filmic and photographic works Horelli is interested in historical connections, but she deliberately undermines their alleged facticity. By prioritising multiple perspectives over linear narrative structure, she opens up and explores gaps and discontinuities.|
Laura Horelli (b. 1976 in Helsinki, Finland) lives and works in Berlin.
She studied fine arts at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki (Department of Time and Space) and at the Städelschule in Frankfurt (class of Thomas Bayrle).
The event will be in German.
