poster for "Gets Under the Skin part II" Screening

This event has ended.

Modernist architecture has been a strong, recurring theme in contemporary art. Way after its rise and fall, it still seems to bug artists, both as art and as social program: it provokes mixed feelings of fascination, nostalgia, rejection and disillusionment. Gets Under the Skin offers a selection of critical responses to the ideas and products of modernist architecture that neither buy the recent "grand narrative" of its wholesale failure nor join the uncritical celebration and fetishization of its masterpieces.

Works in screening:

Terence Gower
Wilderness Utopia, 2008

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle
Always After (The Glass House), 2006

Lars Laumann
Berlinmuren, 2008

Pierre Huyghe
This Is No Time for Dreaming, 2004

Caspar Stracke
No Damage, 2002

(Total screening time: 74' approx.)

Gets Under the Skin is a thesis project curated by Hajnalka Somogyi as part of the requirements for the Master of Arts degree at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
