Federico Solmi: From the Frankfurt Schauspielhaus to Times Square New York

Absolute Madness: Till the 31st of July "American Circus" by Federico Solmi will run on the video walls of the New York Time Square. It is part of the Midnight Moment exhibition series that forms part of the Times Square Alliance art program. "American Circus" is a world premiere of a series of works entitled "The Great Farce". It is based on the 120 m wide video panorama, which Solmi created for the B3 Biennial of the moving image 2017 and which was shown for the first time on the façade of the Schauspiel und Oper in Frankfurt am Main. The sensational project was made possible by the support of the Hessen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts, the Hessian Film and Media Funding and the Kulturfonds Frankfurt Rhein Main. It was initiated and realized by the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (HfG).
