Robert Cahen will be appearing in conversation with Isaac Julien, Professor at the University of the Arts Karlsruhe, videos by Cahen will be screened on 23 February at 7 p.m. in the ZKM Lecture Hall, admission free.

In conjunction with the exhibition Robert Cahen. Narrating the Invisible the internationally renowned French video artist Robert Cahen will be appearing in conversation with the acclaimed British film-maker Isaac Julien. Isaac Julien, who has also gained recognition for his curatorial work and who is Professor at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, will lead the conversation and, complementing the exhibition of video installations, he will present a selection of single channel video art works by Robert Cahen.

The two artists, who belong to different generations and whose work springs form different film traditions, manifest suprising parallels in their respective work methods: the exploration of different artistic disciplines including painting, sculpture and dance, the picturisation of poems, the recurrent engagement with stories and images from foreign countries from South America to East Asia.
