Lecture:
Jeremy Millar: Zugzwang (almost complete)
Tuesday, 5 December, 19 h, Aula

Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.

The term ‘Zugzwang’ is taken from German, meaning ‘compulsion to move’, and is used in chess to describe a situation in which a player is put at a disadvantage because he has to make the next move, and makes his situation worse in doing so. Jeremy Millar’s recent project is ambitious, large-scale, in a number of different media, and was inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s only two visits to the South East region of the UK. Zugzwang (almost complete) is about a Frenchman in England, about The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even, about The Green Glass and chess.
