Susan Hiller: an artist who chased ghosts - and took no prisoners

Her multimedia artworks dwelt on the persistence of the past and the phantoms of cultural anxiety, entertaining, challenging and terrifying viewers

by Adrian Searle

You never knew what Susan Hiller was going to do next, and I sometimes think neither did she. Experiments in automatic writing, burning all her paintings, creating a museum collection of detritus, communicating with the dead. Her art was not programmatic, but driven by curiosity and an alertness to her surroundings.

She recognised that what an artist does happens in the context of place, and society, and the culture in which she finds herself. Hiller's training as an anthropologist sharpened her view and provided something of her methodology, such as it was. She mistrusted objectivity. In her art, in her curating and in her teaching, she was full of curiosity, insight, integrity, humour and irony.

Susan Hiller, artist who explored the paranormal, dies aged 78

"Whatever catches my eye could be the starting point for a work," she said, "and my commitment to the remaindered, rejected and overlooked things and ideas we collectively create, can and has been read metaphorically as a commitment to bringing into visibility marginalised social and political others."

Hiller sometimes positioned herself as a "second wave conceptual artist", and her art was always distanced from the dour, visual Puritanism and polemically narrow - as well as largely male - conceptual art world of the late 1960s and early 70s. But her appeal reached far beyond the hardcore fans of conceptual art - even though Ludovic Kennedy described her as being part of the "loony contingent" of video artists.

"To be a woman and an artist is a privileged position, not a negative one," Hiller said. "When I speak of being a woman artist, I'm suggesting a position of marginality is privileged. If you are marginal, you know two languages, not just one. And you can translate and bring into language insights that have been previously unarticulated. So I consider, like being a foreigner, being a woman is a great advantage." She never shied from complications.

Several works for me stand out. If I say they are memorable, they are themselves also acts of remembering, or re-enacting memory. In her 2007 The Last Silent Movie we watch a black screen. Subtitles provide the only image, the translation of recording of speakers of vanishing languages from all over the world. Hearing these last speakers of Manx, Ngarrindjeri, Potawatomi, Kora, Xokleng and dozens of other disappearing languages (some now lost entirely, apart from their preservation as archival sound recordings) is immeasurably sad. It tells us something about the narrowing of the world, about exclusion and extinction and the homogenisation of cultures.

The 2002-5 J Street Project began on her first visit to Germany on a DAAD scholarship, when she found herself on Jüdenstraße in Berlin. This led her to cross and recross Germany photographing and filming every street sign and location still prefixed by the word Juden (Jew). She located 303 Jüdenstraßes, Judengasses and Judenwegs, back alleys and country lanes, city streets and unmade paths.

Susan Hiller, 75: 'Self-doubt is always present for artists'

Birds sing. Trucks rumble by, people go about their everyday lives. It rains, and there's a gorgeous sunset. The camera keeps seeking out the street and road signs. The film, and attendant photographs and book, dwell on the persistence of the past. "Haunted," I wrote after first seeing the work, "is the only word." More than a coda to the Holocaust, it is a portrait of Germany in the early years of the 21st century, and to my mind one of the best works of the new century.

"All my work deals with ghosts," Hiller once said. The ghosts were sometimes real, but mostly the phantoms of cultural anxiety. Hiller reworked the Punch and Judy show into a terrifying video installation, orchestrated commercial film footage of young girls with psychokinetic powers, and filled a room with dangling amplified speakers, like a swarm of flying saucers, each broadcasting first-hand stories of alien abductions. She worked with the experiments of Latvian psychologist Konstantīns Raudive, who believed that tape recorders left in soundproofed rooms could pick up the voices of the dead - including Winston Churchill and James Joyce.

Hiller had a great touch with all this material, making all the conundrums vivid and intriguing. Rather than unmasking enigmas, she unhinged us, entertained and terrified us, and left us with questions. "The meaning of art is collaboratively formed in the relationship between viewers and works," she once observed. "A major factor in all the work I've ever made, it seems to me, is the designation of spaces where viewers and readers can experience their own roles as active participants - collaborators, interpreters or detectives. Not editing out and not forcing strange juxtapositions or unanswered questions to conform to theory is an aspect of my style, almost a signature."

Hiller wrote brilliantly, acerbically, incisively, critically. She was also a great teacher, provocative and challenging. Briefly teaching beside her at the Slade in the late 1980s, I felt as much scrutinised as any student. In conversation and in public talks, she took no prisoners. On Tuesday, recalling Hiller, the artist Tai Shani tweeted that "I admired and was intimidated by her, and very, very much respected her work and her ways. Susan once very well advised me: 'don't be scared of being a monster.'"

Hiller cared very much about getting things right, and believed in art's seriousness, without ever becoming pompous or humourless or inaccessible. She once confessed a long-standing wish to blend art and science, poetry and analysis in her work. She did all that, and a great deal more.

6. Becca Blackwell, FF Alumn, receives Joe's Pub Working Group honor

The New York Times
Joe's Pub Announces a Diverse Group of Artists in Residence

By Giovanni Russonello
Jan. 23, 2019

The Public Theater on Wednesday announced the 2019 class of the Joe's Pub Working Group, supporting five young performing artists whose careers are on the rise.

This year's honorees include the songwriter and performer Migguel Anggelo; the vocalist and composer Trevor Bachman; the comedian, playwright and performance artist Becca Blackwell; the saxophonist Yacine Boulares; and the singer-songwriter Treya Lam.

Now in its fifth year, the Working Group functions as a residency for standout artists who have previously played at Joe's Pub, a small performance space tucked inside the Public Theater in Lower Manhattan. All five artists receive a $4,000 stipend, but because their work ranges widely, additional services vary for each honoree. They include access to rehearsal space, assistance with video production and consultations with industry experts.

"Joe's Pub Working Group was created to help make the business of being an artist in New York a little easier," Alex Knowlton, the director of Joe's Pub, said in an email. "We're interested in the working life of an artist and have seen so many common needs among the huge spectrum of performers here."

"For the last 20 years, we've watched communities naturally occur amongst musicians, performers, designers, writers and more, and made it our mission to make space for all voices, collaborations and connections," he added.

Anggelo, who was born in Venezuela, creates multilingual works that combine music, dance and poetry. Bachman often uses field research and interviews to create musicals and performances that reflect the life experiences of people across the country. Blackwell's work as a storyteller and actor confronts issues related to the transgender experience. Boulares is a French-Tunisian improviser and composer who combines influences from American jazz and across the globe. And Lam is a classically trained musician fusing elements of chamber music, country and pop.

How to Live in Political Times is a series of panels organized by artist Lenore Malen and inspired by the essays of the 16th century philosopher Michel De Montaigne, who lived during a period of brutal and fanatical religious wars and decline. Rather than offering ethical answers to abstract moral questions, Montaigne provided accounts of his own personal actions in his essays as examples of how one might face any number of dilemmas, large and small. In essence, Montaigne created a new literary form based on self-inquiry in which readers could see themselves.

How to Live: EARTH is the second panel in this series. It features artists who are redefining their relationship to the earth's resources, touching on land management and the lives of animals while examining sources of energy and technologies that still keep us enthralled. Their thinking extends outward from essential physical encounters with soil and non-human lives, to the seasons and cycles of growth, to local politics and their national and global entanglements. The panelists will consider what forms of knowledge art can produce to aid us in defining a common future and living with the unthinkable. As Bruno Latour wrote in his recent book Down to Earth: Politics in the New Climatic Regime, "What is required is a shift sideways defining politics as what leads toward the Earth."

To purchase tickets for the reception: https://www.nationalwca.org/applicants/tickets.php
Mira Schor is a New York-based painter with deep roots and engagement--as artist, writer, educator, and activist--with feminism and with art history, particularly the practice of painting in a post-medium culture. Schor's paintings operate at the intersection of political and theoretical concerns and formalist and material passions. The central theme in recent paintings is the experience of living in a dangerous moment of radical inequality, austerity, accelerated time, and incipient fascism, set against the powerful pull of older notions of time, craft, and visual pleasure. Schor was educated at New York University and received her MFA from CalArts where she was a member of the CalArts Feminist Art Program and a participant in the historic feminist art installation Womanhouse.
Schor has been the recipient of awards in painting from the Guggenheim, Rockefeller, Marie Walsh Sharpe, and Pollock- Krasner Foundations, as well as the College Art Association's Frank Jewett Mather Award for Art Criticism, a Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant and an AICA-USA award for her blog A Year of Positive Thinking.
Schor is the author of two books of collected essays, Wet: On Painting, Feminism, and Art Culture and A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life. Schor is also co-editor of the journal M/E/A/N/I/N/G and editor of The Extreme of the Middle: Writings of Jack Tworkov. She is Associate Teaching Professor at Parsons Fine Arts. Schor was elected to the National Academy of Design in 2017. Schor is represented by Lyles & King Gallery in New York City.



15. Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo, FF Alumn, at Neighborhood Shopp Casa Boricua ISC, The Bronx, thru May 2019

The Stories I Was Told and the Stories I Tell

A program comprising a series of workshops conceived and taught by Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo with a grant from SU-CASA, and to unfold from February to May 2019

With invited guest artists:
Ana Paula Cordeiro, bookmaker
Maggie Ens, sculptor
Priscilla Marrero, choreographer
Carol Szamatowicz, author and yoga instructor

Neighborhood Shopp Casa Boricua ISC
910 East 172nd Street Bronx,
NY, 10460

The Stories I Was Told and the Stories I Tell takes the format of weekly community gatherings through which participants engage in performing the self through different story-telling approaches. The sessions are focused on personal narratives, and how these inform who we are and who we continue to become. For this, the group delves into oral histories related to the subjects for each week: aging and love, intimacy, accomplishments, family, the body, companionship and beauty, among others. Other approaches include letter-writing, a method familiar to older generations, and which can yield life-changing results in terms of healing and reflecting on one's life, enacting forgiveness, or re-writing one's story. Participants will also use photographs belonging to them to create linear as well as non-linear histories that help us remember, honor, recall and re-imagine our paths.

Because most work with elders focuses on remembering what was, I break away from this by inviting the group to embody the present through movement-based and somatic practices. In addition to oral histories, letter-writing, and the use of existing photographs, this workshop includes bookmaking, collage, dance, yoga, and builds on any art or crafts that the participants already practice. The Stories I Was Told and the Stories I Tell pays attention to the act of listening to our bodies, and weaves through its lessons healing techniques, such as breathing exercises, body scan relaxation, compassion and gratitude exercises and visualizations that participants can continue to explore on their own. Working with elders is very dear to me, as I am a 51year old person who is being walked into seniorhood by participants in experiences like The Stories I Was Told and the Stories I Tell. I am very grateful to them.

During the last 25 years Estévez Raful Espejo has been teaching, writing, collaborating, learning, dancing, walking and performing in the Bronx, thus generating a rare archive of the goings on in the borough that includes: videos, photographs, documents, memorabilia, audios and embodied experiences.

The Stories I Was Told and the Stories I Tell is funded by a SU-CASA grant. SU-CASA is a collaboration among the New York City Council, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and the City's five local arts councils. This program is supported by public funds from the New York City Council in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Department for the Aging.
