Time Traveling Artist Drops in For Lecture at UC Berkeley

You might be interested in this on-campus talk by an artist who figures herself as a "time traveler" in her multimedia work.

Lecture Monday, March 5 7:30 p.m. Kroeber Hall

Since 1995, Suzanne Treister has been time traveling with Rosalind Brodsky. Treister’s vast multimedia work uses digital art, photo, video, websites, drawings, paintings and constructions to chart the life and adventures of a heroine traveling through time and history, fact and delusion: trying to rescue her grandparents from the camps of the Second World War, making a laboratory in Mad King Ludwig's castle, and visiting the swinging sixties. She receives analysis from Freud and Jung and traces the family tree of the creators of the Golem. This narrative of actuality and hallucination has been described by Art in America as "One of the most sustained fantasy trips of contemporary art." Treister was born in London and is currently based in Berlin and London.
