What is Contemporary? A Conversation with Hito Steyerl


German filmmaker and writer Hito Steyerl’s work revolves around the politics of the image in contemporary life, from the realms of subjectivity to wireless communications, “hyper-capitalist” economics, governmental data surveillance, and the endless proliferation of increasingly networked digital images. Coinciding with the opening of Hito Steyerl: Factory of the Sun, Steyerl joins MOCA Assistant Curator Lanka Tattersall in conversation. This program is part of What is Contemporary?, a new MOCA series in which artists, scholars, critics, and curators discuss contemporaneity in art.

Priority tickets are available to MOCA members one hour before the program at the MOCA Box Office. 15 minutes before the program begins tickets will be released to non-members. One ticket per person, on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended.

To become a MOCA member please contact the membership department at 213/621-1794 or
