In 2008, the German artist Jutta Koether performed at Galerie Francesca Pia in Zürich (Switzerland) as part of her solo exhibition at the gallery. This is a remastered and re-edited version of VernissageTV’s original documentation of the opening of the exhibition as part of VernissageTV’s Classics series.
The video is currently on view in the exhibition “Double Lives. Visual Artists Making Music.” (Doppelleben. Bildende Künstler_innen machen Musik”), a group exhibition at MUMOK in Vienna (Austria) that has its focus on visual artists who wrote or produced music, who performed music in public, or who were or are members of artists’ bands (23.6.-11.11.2018). The exhibition, curated by curated by Eva Badura-Triska und Edek Bartz, really “exhibits” music, with large projections of videos and photographs of concert and studio performances that give visitors a sense of being there “live,” while also illustrating the significance of different kinds of performance situation.
Jutta Koether was born in Cologne (Germany) in 1958. She studied art and philosophy at the University of Cologne. She is an artist as well as a musician, a writer, a theorist, and an art critic. Jutta Koether has collaborated with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon on a number of projects, for example Her Noise at Tate Modern in 2005. Currently, she is professor of painting/drawing at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg.
