The Performance Lecture “Hand Held Lava” was originally commissioned by Triple Canopy and may be seen at www.canopycanopycanopy.com.

The lecture will be in English.
Please register at anmeldung@scheringstiftung.de.


The performative evening will examine the intersection between volcanoes and contemporary culture, featuring Glasgow-based artist Ilana Halperin, anthropologist Karen Holmberg (New York), and art historian Andrew Patrizio (Edinburgh). The team present their ‘field notes’ from volcanic sites across the world, including Hawaii, Vesuvius, Mt. St. Helens, Iceland, and elsewhere.

By exploring the links between geology, archaeology, history and the visual arts, Halperin, Holmberg and Patrizio will attempt to make sense of our ongoing desire to make contact with volcanoes. Representations of volcanoes in news reports, scientific documentaries, and tourist videos will be projected as a means of understanding the ways in which volcanic eruptions are scientifically, culturally and personally significant events.
