Sven Lütticken (VU Free University Amsterdam)
History in Motion

In this workshop with Sven Lütticken, two of his texts play a central role: The chapter »Transforming Time« from the book »History in Motion« as well as the yet unpublished essay »A Movie and Other Pictures« dealing with Louise Lawler’s work »A Movie Will be Shown Without the Picture« (1979). Both texts address the transformations of cinema or the moving image since the 1970s. What happens when film migrates from the context of cinema to the context of art? What new temporalities are developed in the process and what role do they play in today’s »economy of time«?

Sven Lütticken teaches art history at the VU University Amsterdam, where he is head of the Research Master VAMA (Visual Arts, Media and Architecture). He has published the books »Secret Publicity: Essays on Contemporary Art« (2006), »Idols of the Market: Modern Iconoclasm and the Fundamentalist Spectacle« (2009) as well as »History in Motion: Time in the Age of the Moving Image« (2013).

The Innovation Incubator Lüneburg is an EU major project, financed by the European Regional Development Fund and co-funded by the federal state of Lower Saxony.
