Making Euphoria : In Conversation
With Julian Rosefeldt, Gideon Obarzanek and Ruby Jones
SAT 3 JUNE
Known for the “utterly absorbing” (ARTNews) film installation Manifesto starring Cate Blanchett, artist and filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt creates elaborately staged films that investigate the power of language and the conventions of cinema as an allegory for societal and individual behaviours. He continues this examination with the multi-channel film installation Euphoria, which explores capitalism, colonialism, and the influential effects of unlimited economic growth in society.
