Peter Chametzky delivers keynote lecture at new Berlin museum

Peter Chametzky delivered the keynote lecture at the opening ceremony for a new museum in Berlin dedicated to postwar German art, the Kunsthaus Dahlem,, on June 11, 2015. The museum is located in a building constructed under Nazi Germany to serve as the "State Studio" of sculptor Arno Breker, on whom Peter has written. His lecture, delivered in German translation, was titled "Revising and Refunctioning as Restitution." Peter can also be seen as a talking head in the 2014-15 documentary film "Die Kunst, die mein Vater schuf," about the artist Willi Baumeister and the archive devoted to him organized by his daughter, Felicitas Baumeister.
