Watch & Listen
Thomas Hirschhorn is considered one of the most singular and formally engaged artists of our time. He is renowned for his sprawling, immersive artworks that use everyday materials, found images and texts to engage audiences in actively thinking and facing the reality of our world.
At this free public lecture, Hirschhorn discussed his practice and recent works including SELF-PIXEL, for Remai Modern.
SELF-PIXEL is the latest work in the PIXEL-COLLAGE, Hirschhorn’s ongoing series dealing with the problematic of pixelation. As Hirschhorn explains in his artist’s statement: “Putting or removing each pixel—or even cutting it into smaller pixel parts—is a decision. It’s a political decision. I believe that pixelation or blurring, masking and furthermore censorship or self-censorship, is a growing and insidious problematic, including with the new social media. Obviously, I don’t accept what has been pixelated in my place ‘to protect me,’ and obviously I don’t pixelate what is usually concealed and meant to be removed, to frustrate, censor or hide.”
