25.11.2011 - Goethe Institute Amsterdam
A selection of videos by renowned German artist Julika Rudelius with a new original soundtrack composed and performed live by Robert Lippok (Raster-Noton).
Julika Rudelius was born in 1968 in Cologne and is currently based in New York and Amsterdam. Her work has been exhibited in various solo and group shows in Europe. Her videos, usually showing people in 'everyday' interactions, are marked by an ambiguity between 'staged' and 'spontaneous' situations. Her works look on sexuality, social behavior patterns as well as on physical and verbal communication, especially with respect to the question how these contribute to the creation and reproduction of social hierarchy.
Robert Lippok is the co-founder of the group To Rococo Rot. Since 1996 the group's releases have appeared on various labels, among others on Kitty-Yo, City Slang and Staubgold. In addition, To Rococo Rot created sound recordings for visual artists, such as Olaf Nicolai, Doug Aitken and Takehito Koganezawa. Lippok has released three solo albums: Falling into Komeït (2004), Robot (2006) and, released this month by Raster Noton, Redsuperstructure (2011).
Presented in collaboration with the Netherlands Media Art Institute
