Writer Chris Kraus appears in the film that Cologne-based artist Frances Scholz made for her exhibition at Tif Sigfrids Gallery. The film is about an artist named Amboy, who may or may not be real, and Kraus is purportedly lecturing about him. But since Kraus, like everyone else, does not know enough to lecture about Amboy, she based the lecture on an essay she wrote about ambitious and often dark installation artist Jason Rhoades, replacing Rhoades’ name with “Amboy” whenever necessary. She will re-give the lecture in person.
