International Lecture Series Sven Lütticken: Motion, Captured says
The Power Plant's International Lecture Series (ILS) is a long-running program of talks that brings some of today's greatest thinkers - high-profile artists, curators and cultural commentators from around the world - to Toronto.

In his lecture entitled Motion, Captured, art historian and critic Sven Lütticken will draw upon a number of these artistic practices, from the Constructivists to Harun Farocki and Hito Steyerl, not to mention Picasso and Drake, as analytical pointers for discussion.

Sven Lütticken teaches art history at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where he coordinates Research Master's Programme Visual Arts, Media and Architecture: Critical Studies in Art and Culture. Taking in a range of practices from artistic and other contexts, Lütticken will analyze modern and contemporary—Fordist and post-Fordist—forms of motion study, motion tracking and motion capture. Taylorism, the theory of scientific management, and the Gilbreths’ motion studies will be discussed in relation to contemporary motion-tracking and efficiency operations in museums and other public spaces through techniques such as capturing a performers’ movements through digital animation.
