[SISEA 1990] Curator Statement: Tschumi Video Pavilion Screenings

Curator Statement

Preceding SISEA, Groningen city invited a number of international most renouned architects to design and build so-called Video Pavilions: Mini museums appeared (approximately the seize of a cargo container), spread over the city centre, in which music videos were to be shown. Architects included Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman and Coop-Himmelblau.

For the occasion of SISEA the tilted glass pavilion by Bernard Tschumi was the location of a video program compiled by SISEA and a try-out performance by Stelarc, some days before his ‘official’ performance at the SISEA night of Concerts & Performances. tschumipaviljoen.org/en/tschumipaviljoen architectmagazine.com/project-gallery/tschumi-pavilion_o
