Urban Stage – German photography artist Gudrun Kemsa will be giving a talk at the Power Station of Art, Shanghai, on 20 April.
Gudrun Kemsa is one of Germany's leading contemporary photography and video artists. On 20 April, she will be giving an afternoon seminar at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, illustrating with her timeless, large format photographs that public spaces are in fact the theatre stage of urban life.
In conclusion to the seminar about her own work, Kemsa will also present a short film of highlights from the contemporary video art scene, featuring a compilation of work by fellow European and Asian artists. The themes of the film – curated by Kemsa – revolve around life within the urban environment.
Gudrun Kemsa's work has received numerous awards, and is widely represented in international collections, exhibitions and at festivals. The artist has also been a professor for Moving Images and Photography at the University Niederrhein in Krefeld, Germany, since 2001.
