As part of Whitechapel Gallery's ongoing Big Ideas series, Diedrich Diederichsen discusses Christopher Williams as a performance artist.

About

In the context of the current exhibition, the author, music journalist and cultural critic Diedrich Diederichsen discusses Christopher Williams as a performance artist. One of Germany′s most renowned intellectual writers at the crossroads of the arts, politics, and pop culture, Diederichsen provides an alternative entry point and understanding for Williams’ practice, through an element of the work not presented in the gallery spaces. He explores not only the performance works in Williams’ oeuvre but also the idea of the performativity of storytelling as it exists in his conceptual photography.
