British artist Phil Collins (born 1970) studies the nuances of social relationships in different locations and global communities in his films, installations, photographs and live events. With new forms of artist actions such as a disco marathon in Ramallah, satirical teleshopping events, karaoke performances “Made in Japan” or call-to-vinyl actions, Phil Collins is expanding his video art to cross genres and include performance, theatre and music production. His work completely redefines the term “multimedia”.
The professor of video art at the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln (Academy of Media Arts Cologne) was nominated for the Turner Prize, is a winner of the Paul Hamlyn Award for Visual Arts and received the Audience Award at KINO DER KUNST in 2015.
For the “Zwischenspiel / Interlude”, Phil Collins at the “Harry Klein” club explores a space where – as in his art – dance, music and visuals coalesce into a unified emotional experience.
The talk is moderated by Heinz Peter Schwerfel (Artistic Director of KINO DER KUNST)
