Book Launch & Discussion
October 8, 2013, 7pm
Artists Space is pleased to host a conversation between artist Rainer Ganahl and art historian Boris Groys to mark the publication of DADALENIN (Edition Taube, 2013). This book compiles over 600 pages of text, documentation, and images from Ganahl’s eponymous project, accumulated over the past decade. Ganahl's multifaceted research addressing Vladimir Lenin's supposed involvement with Dada circles in early 20th century Zurich, has taken the form of reading seminars, performances, numerous artworks, films, and museum exhibitions. The publication brings together this vast archive for the first time, until this point having only beenpartially available on Ganahl's encyclopedic website.
