Talk Talk

I will be doing a lecture this weekend as part of Julius Caesar’s “Fest Fest” fundraiser about the ideas and art that transpired during the residency I was at in Bern, Switzerland in August.

Wenzel will present a lecture on the Sommerakademie 2009: “Internal Necessity,” held this past August at the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern Switzerland and curated by Tirdad Zolghadr. The talk will cover the art and experiences of the Sommerakademie. Overarching themes related to “Internal Necessity” from the Sommerakademie such as Labor and Free Time, Im/materiality, Withdrawal, and Specificity will be introduced and lead into an open discussion in which everyone is welcome to participate.
