C/O Berlin

Non-profit organization
Robert Mapplethorpe . Filmreihe
  C/O Berlin cordially invites you ...

to the film series
in the scope of the retrospective
of Robert Mapplethorpe

from March 29 to April 29, 2011

at the Postfuhramt
Oranienburger Straße 35/36

Robert Mapplethorpe toys with sexual identity and staging in his photographs. Beyond these themes, however, his work also references other concepts, such as the representation
of gender, corporality, religion, sickness, and self. A critical look via lectures, discussions, and a film and video series, curated by anthropologist Todd Sekuler and artist Aykan Safog˘lu for C/O Berlin, will introduce questions about Mapplethorpe’s legacy: In what ways might other media impact the way we understand his photographs? Where and when does scandal and provocation in art take shape? How are changing factors like time, place and perspective involved in the processes of creating and receiving images?
