Logan Lectures - Gottfried Helnwein. Denver Art Museum December 13, 2007

The Denver Art Museum's year-long lecture series, which features a lineup of major international contemporary artists with works on view in the new Frederic C. Hamilton Building, concludes with Gottfried Helnwein.
Helnwein's hyperrealistic style seems perfectly suited to his sense of being a "witness" to his times: "That's my duty, my responsibility," he has said, adding that one role of art is to 'force people to look at things they would rather not look at."
