WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
“SELF-PORTRAIT AS A COFFEE-POT”

An exhibition curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev
at Arsenale Institute for Politics of Representation, Venice
Until 24 November 2024
10:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

For this new exhibition at Arsenale Institute for Politics of Representation in Venice, Kentridge collaborates with curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, friend and author of the foundational monograph on his work published in 1998, to premiere his new nine-episode video series, “SELF-PORTRAIT AS A COFFEE-POT”. This exhibition of thirty-minute episodes by Kentridge that were originally intended as a series for online viewing, is an experiment in embodiment and phenomenological experience in the digital age, and a reflection on what might happen in the brain and in the studio of an artist, today.

Innovative arthouse distributor MUBI has acquired global streaming rights for the nine-episode series, created and directed by William Kentridge, executive produced by Rachel Chanoff and Noah Bashevkin of THE OFFICE PERFORMING ARTS + FILM, Joslyn Barnes of LOUVERTURE FILMS and the WILLIAM KENTRIDGE STUDIO, and edited by Walter Murch, Janus Fouché, Žana Marović and Joshua Trappler.
