Marina Rosenfeld’s lecture will focus on the drawings that Marian Zazeela realized over extended periods between 1962 and 1991. In the context of her research, Rosenfeld has created a small edition of engraved dub plates and made a composition from them. The incomparable vocalist Jessika Kenney will interpret the composition as part of the evening.
