Artist Talk in English
Lee Mingwei: Storytelling Time
A Conversation between Lee Mingwei and Dr. Stephanie Rosenthal

Born in Taiwan in 1964 and currently living and working in New York and Berkeley, California, the famous Taiwanese artist Lee Mingwei creates participatory installations, where exhibition visitors can explore issues of trust, intimacy and self-awareness, often inviting a one-on-one interaction between the visitor and the artist or the visitor and a performer. Lee Mingwei creates spaces for contemplation and reflection, with everyday activities such as eating, sleeping, walking or conversation as points of departure. Accordingly his projects are often open-ended scenarios for everyday interaction that, over the course of an exhibition, develop and change. He is particularly interested in the concept of the gift and differences in gift-giving cultures.

In the run-up to a future exhibition at Gropius Bau speaks director Dr. Stephanie Rosenthal with Lee Mingwei how participation and the concept of gift giving play central roles in his artistic practice.

The event is open to the public and free of charge. With the support of the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.
