WORLD PREMIERE: COLD STORIES

Dias & Riedweg, whose exhibition is now showing, have, in collaboration with Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, produced a new work Cold Stories

Cold Stories investigates how collective memory of the Cold War has been stored over the years and is presented today. The work crosscuts among key speeches by some of the central political figures of this era, YouTube archival cuts from the period, and marionettes handled by Brazilian ace puppeteer Noguera. All of this has come together as one comprehensive installation, setting the stage as only few video works manage to do.

The work is shown for the first time ever at the exhibition Dias & Riedweg: Possible Archives at Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, from June 8 to August 18 2013.
