Save Event: Laurie Anderson. The Language of the Future

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


During the closing weekend of "ever elusive - thirty years of transmediale", the performance and multimedia artist Laurie Anderson will show a recent version of "The Language of the Future".


The first version of this work was iconically featured in the 1984 show "Good Morning, Mr. Orwell" by Nam June Paik. In this new work the artist blends spoken word, violin, and electronic sounds crossing borders between dreams, reality, and the elusive world of information. As a pioneer in the field of multimedia art, Anderson showed her CD-Rom artwork Puppet Motel at the 1996 edition of transmediale, when the festival was still called VideoFest. The Language of the Future explores the inextricable links between past, present, and future and is Laurie Anderson’s first performance in Berlin since five years.
