Video wonder

Matthias Müller, one of Germany’s hottest video artists, comes to SMG this Friday and Saturday.

Matthias Müller, one of Germany’s hottest video artists, comes to the School of Management this Friday and Saturday, September 29 and 30, as the star of a two-day event called, appropriately, Matthias Müller: Multi-Media-Poet, sponsored by Boston’s Goethe Institut.

Famous for his short features, Müller has also worked in video and photography and has made a name for himself around the world with a wide variety of topics and treatments, ranging from lyrical explorations of the self to witty and subversive found footage appropriations of classic Hollywood movies.

The two-day conference on Müller’s work features a lineup of internationally renowned scholars and theorists. Müller will show all his films, including his latest, Kristall, one of this year’s Cannes International Film Festival winners.
