Artist Talk: Rafael Lozano-Hemmer


Working between architecture, technology, and performance, Lozano-Hemmer creates large-scale, participatory installations that he calls “anti-monuments.” Focusing on the political dimensions of his work in public space, Lozano-Hemmer will discuss works such as Voz Alta (Loud Voice), a memorial commissioned for the fortieth anniversary of the student massacre in the Tlatelolco section of Mexico City on October 2, 1968, and the large-scale immersive installation, Border Tuner / Sintonizador Fronterizo, designed to interconnect the cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.

This talk was recorded on September 30, 2021 as part of New Territory: Beyond the US/Mexico Border, a series of public programs exploring the relationship between art, design, and the US-Mexico border as a region unto itself, with its own communities and connections.
