Marcel Odenbach is one of Germany’s leading video artists. He will be speaking about and showing two works in their entirety, an approach necessitated by the way the work is conceived and structured in time. ‘In Still Waters Crocodiles Lurk’ is a work on the Rwandan genocide of 1994, completed in 2004. ‘Turning Circles’ is a newly completed work on Majdanek Mausoleum, built on the site of the Lublin concentration camp in 1969.
Odenbach has lived and worked in New York, Ghana and Cologne.
