Film: Urs Fischer

A series of new documentary works by Swiss filmmakers on the country's contemporary artists is presented in association with the Embassy of Switzerland.

Writing in The New Yorker, Calvin Tomkins noted that "Urs Fischer's art, like Fischer himself, is highly memorable but hard to pin down." His Bread House is a case in point—a life-size alpine chalet constructed entirely from loaves of bread in different sizes and shapes. As filmmaker Schumacher notes, "he combines a pop immediacy with a neo-baroque taste for the absurd." (Iwan Schumacher, 2010, DCP, Swiss-German and Italian with subtitles, 98 minutes)

Event begins at 2:00PM
