More About This Title Julian Rosefeldt


Julian Rosefeldt (b. 1965) is one of the most famous contemporary film artists. His installation Midwest shows a dismal container terminal. Car tyres, crushed cigarette packets and the mattresses of a homeless man mark the setting before visitors reach a run-down drive-in cinema, where Rosefeldt’s film The Swap is presented: an action film parody about tough men, cars, the flow of money and goods and organized crime. The present volume documents the installation and delves deeper into its highly political contents.


Since February 2015 Ralf Beil is the art director of the Kunstmusem Wolfsburg. Previously he was exhibition curator and conservator at the collection of painting and sculpture of Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts Lausanne as well as director of the Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt.
