Kurt Ralske will be on leave for the spring 2020 semester.
Kurt Ralske's video installations, films, sound art, and performances enact a dialogue with history: an exploration of the past that proposes a new view of the future. His projects utilize technology as a means of research and criticism. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at the 2009 Venice Biennale, the Guggenheim Bilbao, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Kurt is the recipient of a Rockefeller Foundation Media Arts Fellowship, and received First Prize at the Transmediale International Media Art Festival in Berlin in 2003. Kurt programmed and co-designed the 9-channel video installation that is permanently in the lobby of the MoMA in NYC. He is also the author/programmer of Auvi, a popular video software environment in use by artists in 22 countries. A book of his images and texts, Rediscoving German Futurism 1920-1929 (co-authored with Miriam Atkin), was published in 2013.
