City thru glas / Moskau-Düsseldorf-Moskau, 2003
K20/Kunstsammlung NRW, Düsseldorf;
2 projectors, 60' loop, silent
In the transition of the building housing the Düsseldorf art collection between the art collection and the surrounding city, Kuball showed a double projection of Stadt durch Glas works. Kuball combined the footage of Düsseldorf. with two twenty-minute trips through Moscow, one by day, the other at night, which were also shot through a drinking glass in front of the camera lens. Kuball calls this form of presenting distorted images of the city in public space, which he employed here for the first time, "urban screenings."
