Bard Theater and Performance Program presents

Professor David Levine, Director, ECLA's Studio Program

Performing and Visual Arts at ECLA of Bard in Berlin*

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

[Professor David Levine, Director, ECLA's Studio Program]
The European College of Liberal Arts (ECLA), in November 2011, merged with Bard College and became ECLA of Bard,* a Liberal Arts University in Berlin. As ECLA of Bard aims to open dialogue between different academic disciplines, so does the Studio Program aim to open a theoretical and practical dialogue between visual, performing, and performance art, as well as between studio practice and critical thought.

DAVID LEVINE is an artist based in New York, and Berlin, whose work encompasses theater, performance, video and photography. His performance projects have been seen at MoMA, Mass MoCA, Documenta XII, PS122, the Watermill Center, and Gavin Brown@Passerby, and his video and photographic work has been exhibited at Blum & Poe (Los Angeles), Tanya Leighton (Berlin), HAU2 (Berlin), ISCP (New York), the Goethe Institut New York, François Ghebaly (Los Angeles) and Galerie Feinkost (Madrid). Last fall he worked with Gideon Lester and the Crossing the Line Festival to present his performance installation Habit in New York City at the Essex Street Market.

Levine was awarded at 2007 Kulturstiftung Des Bundes grant for Bauerntheater, and a 2009 Etant Donnés grant for Venice Saved: a Seminar, which premiered at PS122. He is a 2012-2013 Fellow in Visual Arts at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. His work has been featured or reviewed in Artforum, Frieze, Art in America, the New York Times, the Believer, Bomb, Theater, TDR, and Mousse, and he has published artists’ projects and essays in Cultural Politics, Triple Canopy and Cabinet, and co-authored a widely circulated essay on International Art English in 2012.

* ECLA of Bard was the historical name of Bard College Berlin until December 2013.
