Long-awaited monumental monograph on the work of David Claerbout
In a conversation with Jonathan Pouthier, curator of the cinema programme of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou (Paris, France), video artist David Claerbout reflects for the first time in depth on his work of the past decade in relation to current discussions about photography, film and the virtual. The Silence of the Lens offers a unique insight into the creative process behind such recent video works as The Close, Aircraft (F.A.L.), Wildfire (meditation on fire), The Confetti Piece and The Pure Necessity.
The publication coincides with the Venice Biennale 2022 and solo exhibitions in various cities including Munich, Berlin, Budapest and New York.
