An online lecture by art critic and art studies expert Irina Kulik, covering the topic of “Lee Bul’s Retrofuturism”, will be given on January 17 as part of the supplemental programme for Lee Bul's exhibition Utopia Saved.
South Korean artist Lee Bul constructs fantastic worlds using images and ideas from art and science of the first half of the 20th century. How does this interest in Retrofuturism and this fascination with dirigibles and unrealised utopias of the historical avant-garde connect Lee Bul to other contemporary artists? What does she have in common with the Argentinian Tomás Saraceno and the Belgian Panamarenko? Irina Kulik will discuss these issues in her online lecture.
About the speaker: Irina Kulik is an art critic, expert in art studies, and the author of numerous publications on contemporary art, film, and modern music.
This meeting is part of Manege’s supplementary programme to “Utopia Saved”.
The online lecture will begin at 19:00 and last for 1 hour.
