Chris Kraus: FILMS BEFORE AND AFTER

1 July–8 September 2019
Opening: 31 May 2019, 17:30–20:00

Chris Kraus is a key reference in the boundaries between art and literature. The exhibition at Index presents the film production of Chris Kraus in connection with her books. Her books offer other ways to understand theory and practice, other methodologies to deal with the emotional and open possibilities for critical approaches to reality.

Kraus has a filmic experience that shows a way to understand independent film production from the 80’s and the 90’s. Her films can be seen today to reformulate image culture regarding philosophical matters, emotions and the need for other ways to define content production, distribution and agency.
