Yael Bartana – Tue, Jan 24, 6:30 pm
Israeli-Dutch artist and filmmaker Yael Bartana examines and questions widely accepted social rituals and structures regarding the cultural identity and historical construction of her native country. Attend a screening of her recent film trilogy …and Europe will be stunned, which was featured as the official Polish participation at the Venice Biennale in 2011. A Q&A with the artist, actors from the trilogy, and Guggenheim curator Reem Fadda follows the screening.

Natascha Sadr Haghighian – Tue, Jan 31, 6:30 pm
In a program that combines elements of a performance, a lecture, and an interactive scavenger hunt, Natascha Sadr Haghighian invites you to initiate a dialogue with special agents from her past projects. Drawing on a diverse range of mediums, including installation, video, and performance, Sadr Haghighian’s conceptual practice is primarily concerned with the cultural construction of perception and the politics of artistic production.
