Canadian Currents

Toronto: Absolute Choice Curatorial Collective, 1999

"Canadian Currents complements the Current Media Art program from Germany, presented in November 1999 at the Goethe-Institut Toronto. The program has been conceptualized in collaboration with Berlin based Bjoern Melhus, artist and curator, and Doina Popescu, programme coordinator of the Goethe-Institut Toronto. Foreshadowing millenial projects of 2000 at the Goethe-Institut, a panel discussion, reflecting on the changing global cultural trends and the transformative aspects of new media, will inaugurate the German and Canadian presentations."
