Liz Magic Laser's recent works.
This book focuses on her recent work examining the techniques of news production and the studied gestures of politicians. By using television news as theatrical dialogue, Laser confronts us with the mechanisms at play in the presentation and reception of current events. Benedikt Reichenbach's unique design offers varied entry points to Laser's practice, including video scripts written in collaboration with Sofia Pontén and essays by Kristina Scepanski, Jordan Troeller, and Tom Williams.
Published following the eponymous exhibition at the Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, in 2013.
Liz Magic Laser (born 1981 in New York) lives and works in Brooklyn. Her performances and videos intervene in semi-public spaces such as bank vestibules, movie theaters and newsrooms, and have involved collaborations with actors, dancers, surgeons, and motorcycle gang members. Her recent work appropriates the dominant performance techniques and psychological strategies used by the media and politicians to sway public opinion.
