GETTY RESEARCH INSTITUTE
HARALD SZEEMANN ARCHIVE
ORAL HISTORIES

For over a year we have been filming oral histories about curator Harald Szeemann (1933-2005) for the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. After acquiring the Szeemann archive GRI is mounting a comprehensive retrospective on the curatorial work by Szeemann. The show opened in February 2018 at the Getty in Los Angeles and then travels to different European venues. We produced all the audiovisual content including short documentaries and slideshows. The videos will be part of the exhibition as well as an important part of the archive. Interviews feature curators and artists such as: Ai Wei Wei, Lawrence Weiner, Christo, Anri Sala, Cai Guo-Qiang, Alana Heiss, Giuseppe Penone and Germano Celant and many others.
