Krzysztof Wodiczko: Projections

Krzysztof Wodiczko: Projections

| 53 min

This full-length documentary examines the work of Krzysztof Wodiczko, an artist who has taken his art out of museums to project it onto the sides of buildings. The film explores Wodiczko’s philosophy of art as social contract and shows examples of his provocative work, which has lit up walls from London's Trafalgar Square to Zion Square in Jerusalem.

Wodiczko uses his giant projections to comment upon or subvert states of authority. Have students discuss some of his projections and the contexts in which they are used. How successful are they? What is he trying to say in, for example, Boston, or Israel, Scotland or even Montreal? What does he say about identity in, for example, San Diego? Or war in Madrid? In the pre-Internet, pre-digital era, what is the impact of such projections?
