University of California, Los Angeles - School of Architecture and Urban Design
March 24, 2015
Karin Apollonia Müller has photographed landscapes, mostly in Los Angeles and its peripheral environment since 1996. She uses photography to investigate the play between nature and cultivated spaces: how each tries to control the other.
Born in Heidelberg, Germany, Karin Apollonia Müller studied photography at the Folkwang School, Essen, where she received her Masters of Fine Art in 1992. She is recipient of numerous artist awards, commissions and residencies, among a Lannan Foundation Fellowship, Galisteo, NM, and an artist commission from the Getty/CAL Arts Grant, LA. Karin Apollonia Müllers work is part of the collections of major art museums including the Museum of Modern Art, NY; The Whitney Museum, NY; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, SF; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, LA; among others. She has published three monographs, Angels in Fall, Kruse, On Edge, Nazraeli Press and Timbercove, Nazraeli Press.
Organized by Professor Neil Denari these lectures question; Is architecture part of the media since it is a medium? While it is not classified as a “graphic” or two-dimensional medium like painting, graphic design, or photography, it is nonetheless a medium of space and construction that has a relationship to these modes of expression and communication. This mini-lecture series asks two graphic design studios and two artists who work in photography to situate their work within the larger field of ideas that make up the image-sphere. In this world, this series argues, architecture does not stand apart from media, it takes its place in between and next to all other forms of image production seen to be traditionally at odds with architecture’s mass and persistence. Presenters will return to UCLA in June to participate in the annual RUMBLE symposium.
