Coming Up Versace: Live panel discussion

19:00 - 20:00 on September 19 2014 BST

Klaus Weber is an artist who lives and works in Berlin. Born 1967 in Sigmaringen, Germany, Weber's work focuses on the relationship between the urban environment and the definitive associations between public and political space. The artist in residence at Villa Aurora, Los Angeles, in 2003 he undertook a twelve-month residency at Delfina, London, and exhibited Public Foundation LSD Hall at the Frieze Art Fair. The installation functioned as a proposal for a public building with the centre-piece being a crystal glass fountain circulating 'Potentized LSD' allowing the viewer to notice 'the weirdness of daily life which through repetition has lost its meaning'. Weber's fixation with the role of public space began one of the major collaborative political film projects of the 90's with A-Clips, 35mm short films tied to a specific moment in Berlin. The project was later taken to London and New York.
