Hans Christ and Iris Dressler
Hans Christ and Iris Dressler are the co-directors of the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart. The team has proven themselves to be innovators in the promotion and presentation of art with a string of endeavors and accomplishments including the founding of Hartware Medien Kunst Verein as an independent platform for the presentation of contemporary art in 1996. Throughout their careers the team has organized impressive exhibitions that reflect the seriousness of their scholarship and their passion for contemporary art, including most recently Stan Douglas: Past Imperfect in 2007 and Contenance in 2005. The latter included the work of Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler, the artists featured in the Modern’s exhibition No Room to Answer. For this Tuesday Evening presentation, Christ and Dressler present the current direction of video art, including the work of artists such as Stan Douglas, while focusing on the career of Hubbard and Birchler.
