Contemporary Project: Susan Philipsz

Exhibition Website

Feb 12 2017 - Jul 9 2017

 First exhibited at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin in 2014, the work is an immersive experience of sound and image. Large prints feature redacted FBI files kept on Austrian composter Hanns Eisler during the McCarthy era, while isolated violin notes from his early Hollywood film scores spill from twelve speakers. The result is a haunting landscape that captures the tragic biography of a composer whose life and art were repeatedly under siege.
