Screening of “2001” by Wolfgang Staehle

On September 11, Snug Harbor will exhibit Wolfgang Staehle’s work 2001– the digital image project that captured the approach of hijacked plane Flight 11 and its impact.

Days prior, Staehle had set up unmanned webcams in Brooklyn for a project conveying the predictable normalcy of life. This rare footage, which records the launch of the terrorist attacks on America, would shift the perception of Staehle’s artwork from an aesthetic commentary to forensic evidence. For the next three weeks, his Brooklyn-based cameras continued to document lower Manhattan’s recast skyline with mournful impassivity.

In collaboration with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, Snug Harbor will be screening this work in real-time throughout the day, free to the public.

WHERE: Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C&G)
WHEN: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
ADMISSION: Free entry with suggested donation of $5.00 for the entire day

Presentation of this program is made possible through the generous support of 9/11 Memorial Museum Presenting Sustainer Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund. Additional support provided by the German Academy New York.
