SHELLY SILVER – IN BETWEEN

This new section of the festival focuses on artists working at the intersection of documentary, fiction and contemporary art. Since the 1980s, Shelly Silver has been questioning the value of images through continually changing forms. But no matter how eclectic, her work always seeks to unveil the desires and ideology that bias representation. Shelly Silver will invite personalities of her choice (Christa Blümlinger, Avi Mograbi, Raymond Bellour) to discuss her work with her–another feature of this new section.
