Performing the Body: A Selection of Video Works by Johannes Zits with an opportunity for questions and discussion
Johannes Zits works with and combines digital imaging, collage, photography and painting to focus on the body. His work intends to draw attention to both the conventional image-making process as well as the ways images from mass media are disseminated and consumed. His visit will include a guest lecture on the UB North Campus and a screening of recent pieces at Hallwalls, in downtown Buffalo. Examples of his recent work can be found at http://www.johanneszits.com/. This event is co-sponsored by the Humanities Institute and the Department of Visual Studies.
