Conflictual Topography I

  • Screening

Online Screening with Rosa Barba and Ben Rivers

The Conflictual Topography public program that was organized by Heidi Ballet and that was planned to take place during the exhibition of Zhou Tao came to a halt due to the coronavirus crisis.

In May, a screening of Urth (2016) by Ben Rivers and The Empirical Effect (2010) by Rosa Barba is programmed, accompanied by a conversation.
