The oeuvre of Swiss artist and filmmaker Klaus Lutz (*1940 – 2009 NY) adds up to a densely interlaced universe all of its own. Based the premise that written language would soon be replaced by entirely visual communication, Lutz created an intricate sign system that he deployed across a whole range of media. At Armory 2013, we present Klaus Lutz' most spectacular invention: looped 16mm film projections on a balloon "suspended" in the air. By means of multiple exposures, various types of lenses, and self-constructed apparatuses, he created films that combined and over-layered animation, performance, drawings and scenes shot on the streets of New York, where he had been living since 1993. Lutz shot the films all by himself in his one-bedroom East Village apartment.
