Thomas D. Trummer: on the gravity of the image edge

January 9, 2020, 7 pm

Thomas D. Trummer, who curated Rachel Rose’s 2017 solo exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz, will be conducting a tour through the Kassel show explaining the practice of the young American artist.   

Rachel Rose is preoccupied with the cut, the incision – picture editing at the edges and formats, film editing between images and frames, the fissures of things and subjects, indeed with the rift of the senses and the subject. Her films are impressive experiences, abductions into crystalline orbits, liquefied matter, transparent architectures and unfathomable memories.

Thomas D. Trummer has been director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz (KUB) since 2015. Before that he was Artistic Director at Kunsthalle Mainz (2012–2015) and Project Manager for Visual Arts at the Siemens Arts Program in Munich (2007–2012). He was Visiting Scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA (2010–2011) and Hall Curatorial Fellow at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, USA (2006–2007). Previous to that he was Curator for Modern and Contemporary Art at Belvedere Wien and Guest Curator at the Grazer Kunstverein.
