Within the framework of the art fair Munich Contempo, Francoise Heitsch Gallery presented a special exhibition with works by the German video art pioneer Klaus vom Bruch. In this video, Klaus vom Bruch provides us with an introduction to his work and the exhibition.
Klaus vom Bruch studied conceptual art at the California Institute of the Arts with John Baldessari from 1975 to 1976, and philosophy at the University of Cologne from 1976 to 1980. With Ulrike Rosenbach and Marcel Odenbach he formed the art group ATV. An early video of his, “Schleyerband,” contains television clips from 1977 and 1978, with footage of the Red Army Faction. From 1992 to 1998 he taught media art at the University of Arts in Karlsruhe (Hochschule für Gestaltung). Since 1999 he is a professor for media art at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. In 2000 he was a visiting professor at Columbia University in New York. (Wikipedia, last modified on November 19, 2009, 4:30)
