May, 13, 10 AM - Guided visit to the exhibition DARA BIRNBAUM - A MATÉRIA NEGRA DA LUZ DOS MEDIA, in Museu de Serralves.
The video works of Dara Birnbaum (New York, 1946) are among the most infl uential and innovative contributions to the construction of a relationship between art and television. Birnbaum started making art that was politically and critically relevant in the mid-1970s. Since then she has been provoking a strong inquiry as to the way we look at political events and how we are infl uenced and manipulated by images, television and the media in general. Surveying a course of more than thirty years and bringing together early and recent works, this retrospective is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with one of the most crucial bodies of work of our time.
