On Showing: Ulrike Ottinger’s Deictic Gestures| Lecture by Katharina Sykora
Lecture by Katharina Sykora
Ulrike Ottinger is an internationally-renowned artist whose work has been called a ‘small universal theater’ of its own (kleines Welttheater). Embracing film, photography, theater, and exhibitions, it draws the viewer’s attention to different ways of showing. My presentation will focus on this deictic structure in Ottinger’s work and its presence in her figures, scenography, and the compositions of each frame. By showing her way of showing, I want to reflect upon this form of pointing things out demonstratively, such as with the gesture of the index finger, and how it generates cultural, historical, and gender differences.
Lunch will be provided
