Guggenheim

In 2003, in collaboration with the Fine Arts program at the Bern University of the Arts and the musician Frank Bungarten, Struth created the video Read This Like Seeing It for the First Time for the Bern Biennale. Almost five hours long, the video of Bungarten’s guitar classes at the Lucerne School of Music was filmed with two cameras simultaneously, and the two recordings were then projected onto separate screens. The different perspectives and ways of seeing condense the scenes into intense moments of a learning process shaped by the teacher-student relationship in the context of artistic development.
