Before the Club: Conversation – Charlie Morrow and Barbara Rosenthal, Monday 28 January, at 17:00-17: 30, Pokkari Café & Bar, Vuosaari House

Barbara Rosenthal (born 1948 in The Bronx, New York) is an American avant-garde artist, writer and performer. As a creative artist within the fields of surrealism and existentialism, Rosenthal brings existential content, via the subconscious, to conceptual art and is known for her intense introspection. As an artist, Rosenthal is known as an Old Master of New Media because of her long history in media including photography, video, performance, projection installation, interactive, electronic and digital media, text and artists’ books.

At the Club event Barbara Rosenthal will present a compilation of short video works from 1976-2018 and tell about her work.

Pekka Sassi (born 1969) is a Finnish media artist whose works include dozens of experimental sound and video pieces, short films, installations and music. In 2006 he received the AVEK award, the most significant recognition for media art in Finland. In 2010 at the 23rd European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück, Germany, he received the EMAF Award.

At the MUU Club, Pekka Sassi will perform live, in connection to his abstract video work The Color of Other. In a minimalistic video work, abstract colored shapes move slowly creating new spaces. An intense, thriller movie-like music underlines the atmosphere, and the viewer travels through different color universes.
