Eve Sussman
89 Seconds at Alcazar

Eve Sussman is a New York-based American artist whose works involve film, installation, sculpture and photography. She founded The Rufus Corporation, an ensemble with a rotating cast of performers, artists and musicians.

‘89 Seconds at Alcazar’, which won an award at the Whitney Biennale, 2004, is a single-channel, looped video inspired by Diego Velasquez’ ‘Las Meninas’. Treating the scene in the painting as a film still, the Rufus Corporation invented actions to come before and after the depicted moment.

Kurz Gestaltung designed the artists’ book '89 Seconds at Alcazar' accompanying the video in cooperation with Eve Sussman. New York / Berlin, 2006.
