Ken Jacobs: The Guests

  • Dates: July 27 – November 19, 2017
  • Curator: Manuel Cirauqui
  • Film & Video Gallery (103)

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao will present Ken Jacobs’s work The Guests (2013) in Spain for the first time from July 27 to November 19, 2017. This is the eleventh piece scheduled in the Film & Video Gallery since it opened in 2014 to house key works of video art, video installation, and the moving image as artistic media.

“The world would be different if our eyes were different.” With these words, Ken Jacobs expresses the main purpose of his works: to encourage viewers to question not only the truth and veracity of cinematographic images but also their own way of experiencing the three-dimensionality of the world.
