Lumina de Peter Weibel

Lumina is an emblematic work of the artist and theorist Peter Weibel (Odesa, 1944), which was released at Gallery Magers of Bonn in 1977. Coinciding with its 40th anniversary, a new video recording has been realized, which is displayed by means of the original multichannel video installation, composed of seven monitors. Looking back on lumen etymology as an intrinsic light source on the monitor itself, the artist encourages imagining an abbreviated history of video art from the sensitivity of gaze. This installation builds also a transitable sculpture that places us in these first moments of the medium, where the audiovisual production arose between object forms of expanded sculpture and minimalist proposals that had opened the possibility to consider the exhibition space itself.
