ANNE IMHOF — FAUST RECORD LAUNCH

Join Anne Imhof, Eliza Douglas, Billy Bultheel, and Susanne Pfeffer for a talk, performance, and party celebrating the release of the album FAUST.

Deriving from the performance and exhibition—staged by Imhof at the 57th Venice BiennaleFAUST is part documentation and part elaboration, the sonic capture and extrapolation of the gestures, intensities, and durations of the live event. Serving as the dramatic backbone of the several-hour long performance at the 2017 German Pavilion, the soundtrack was a product of the collective and its individuals, written by Imhof and her collaborators Bultheel, Douglas, and Franziska Aigner.*

ANNE IMHOF — GOLDEN LION

“My work stands for the grace of thoughts, for liberty, for the right to be different, for gender nonconformity, and the pride of being a woman in this world.” — Anne Imhof, representing Germany, after winning the Golden Lion in Venice, 2017

FAUST, by Anne Imhof, took the top prize at the 57th Biennale Arte. Her durational installation/performance piece—Dobermans circling a theater featuring dancers on and under a transparent stage—was a hit among Biennale visitors, too.

“The concept of movement is treacherous. It seems to denote an external, natural movement, whereas in my work is as much about how people project into the future, considering what they might do, how they will do it, why and with whom.” — Anne Imhof*
