Knut Asdam will be on campus with a variety of events from Oct 16th - 19th

This program with Knut Åsdam - Mellon Artist in Residence at the University of Pennsylvania - features recent works, a new film and two new site-specific installations. It explores architecture and cinema at the conjunction of the personal, the paranoiac, and the public. Knut Åsdam utilizes film, video, sound, photography and architecture to investigate the politics of space and the boundaries of subjectivity. He is centrally concerned with place and placelessness in all of its contemporary forms, as well as experimental narrative.
