Kunsthalle Basel presents at STADTKINO Basel on the occasion of the exhibition Stories, Myths, Ironies, and Other Songs: Conceived, Directed, Edited, and Produced by M. Auder by Michel Auder:
JESUS (1979) by Michel Auder
Produced and Directed by Michel Auder
color & b/w
Michel Auders films and videos are recordings of his surroundings, his private life and the people around him. The French artist first began exploring video as an artistic medium in the late 1960s. Over the years he has shot thousands of hours of film, in the early days with Super 8, 16mm and 35mm cameras and subsequently embracing the latest video and digital media as they became available — right up to the camera in his mobile phone. Much of this footage was only edited by the artist many years after it was recorded, and turned into video works ranging from sequences lasting just few minutes to feature-length films.
JESUS by Michel Auder is a portrait of friends and people on the street talking about Jesus.
The exhibition entitled Stories, Myths, Ironies, and Other Songs: Conceived, Directed, Edited, and Produced by M. Auder by Michel Auder can be visited at Kunsthalle until August 28.
Location: STADTKINO Basel (Klostergasse 5)
