Julian Rosefeldt “Midwest”


In stock



Julian Rosefeldt (born 1965) is one of the most inter­na­tio­nally renowned video and film artists of the present day. His monumental instal­la­tion Midwest forms the focal point of the exhibi­tion Wolfsburg Unlimited, in which the history, present and future of Wolfsburg are artis­ti­cally illumi­nated. A gloomy container terminal, car tires, crumpled cigarette packets and the mattress warehouse of a homeless man mark the setting before the visitor reaches a run-down drive-in cinema. This is where Rosefeldt’s latest film „The Swap“ is shown: an action film persi­flage about tough guys, cars, money and goods flows and organized crime. The present volume documents this master­piece of instal­la­tion and film art and deepens its highly political content with essays and an interview with the artist.
