in front of ZKM_Lecture Hall
→ Information auf deutsch
The Watermill Center is an interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts and humanities on Long Island, NY. Founded by theatre and visual artist Robert Wilson 17 years ago as a place for young and emerging artists from over 30 countries to work, learn, create, and grow with each other, Watermill integrates performing arts practice with resources from the humanities, research from the sciences, and inspiration from the visual arts. The photographic works by Eric Larrayadieu portray artist and director Robert Wilson in a fascinating perspective in his Watermill Center.
Robert Wilson has been working in close collaboration with the ZKM for many years through his numerous exhibitions and projects. Thus, in 2010, his "Video Portraits" could be viewed in an exhibition at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art for which a comprehensive ZKM exhibition catalog was published. Wilson was engaged as curator for a retrospective on the work of North American artist Paul Thek in 2007 held at the ZKM. Wilson is also affiliated with the region in a number of ways, and has staged several productions at the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden as well as at Badisches Staatstheater.
