Atom Egoyan - Tate Modern Lecture
Samuel Beckett was an acclaimed genius in both the literary and theatrical realms and is acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Beckett's brutal, sometimes even blasphemous rendering of suffering, loneliness and deprivation caused shock and sensation. He was also a radical and remorseless experimenter, whose influence on contemporary visual art has often been overlooked.
Beckett's continuing impact is the subject of this discussion between artists Dorothy Cross, Atom Egoyan, Michael Craig-Martin and Shahram Entekhabi, chaired by Derval Tubridy from Goldsmiths College.
