In "Unframed", the city is object of observation from inside a nebula black, floating, cavernous, mysterious. As in the depths of a primordial cave, the urban overview is fragmented in a collage-city in form of video. The drone unveils the Milan urban fabric with its patterns, grains and densities: from historical city emerges a new contemporary skyline. "Unframed" investigates the possibility to create images with mobile and fluid outline, an aerial view, sinuous and oscillating, in an incessant fluctuation. "Unframed" documents the odeporic approach of the contemporary culture in which the perception is an idiomatic overview.

Born 1974 in Faenza, Italy. He lives and works in Milan, Italy. Multi-disciplinary artist and architect, in his practice he uses the languages of video, performance, sculpture and installation to document ephemeral architectures and temporary utopias. He has taken part in solo and group shows in institutions such as Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York; Antology Film Archive, New York; PAC, Milan; Medialab-Prado, Madrid; Museo de Arte, Lima; Xinjiang Biennale; MACRO, Rome; Kulturhuset Museum, Stockholm; MMOMA - Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Moscow; Ace Gallery, Los Angeles; Angel Orensanz Foundation, New York; Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Amsterdam; Spazio Oberdan, Milan; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Kunsthalle, Wien; Stadtgalerie, Kiel; Centre d'Art Santa Monica, Barcelona; Fondazione Merz, Turin; Kunstverein, Augsburg; National Museum, Wroclaw; Mart - Galleria Civica, Trento; Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome.

?La Sortie des Usines Lumière à Lyon? (1895) est le titre du premier film à avoir jamais été projeté en public. D´une durée de 45 secondes, il montre les ouvriers sortant d' une usine photographique appartenant aux frères Lumière, à Lyon. Dans son film "Arbeiter verlassen die Fabrik", Harun Farocki explore cette scène en utilisant l´histoire du film. Pour "Klang-Film", le film de Farocki à été re-monté en une version plus courte. La plus grande partie des dialogues ont été coupés au remontage, faisant du film quasiment un film muet. La musique, rajoutée par la suite, est donc devenue un élément nouveau et d'influence sur la forme, et elle ouvre une nouvelle dimension dans la perception des images. "Klang-Film" explore le conterpoint sensoriel des sons et des images, ainsi que leur interaction, ambiguité et heurts. Comment une musique particulière façonne-t-elle la perception des images? Comment les images façonnent-t-elles la perception d´une musique particulière? Dans son livre "Audio-Vision: Sound on Screen", Michel Chion avance l´idée que son et image sont toujours indépendants, et que seuls notre conditionnement et l´utilisation de nos conventions de synchronisation nous font croire que ce n´est pas le cas. Citons la métaphore éclairante du réalisateur français Robert Bresson : "Images et sons, comme des gens qui font connaissance en route et ne peuvent plus se séparer"


Mario Verandi (Buenos Aires 1960) à étudié la musique en Argentine, à Barcelone et à l´Université de Birmingham (GB).Les oeuvres de Verandis comprennent de la musique éléctroacoustique, des morceaux audiovisuels, des installations sonores et des travaux radiophoniques. Il était compositeur résident à La Muse en Circuit (Paris), au Studio Césaré (Reims), TU-studios Berlin, au ZKM (Karlsruhe) et invité du programme des artistes-en-résidence (artists-in-residence) à Berlin. Verandi a été récompensé entre autres lors de la Bourges Electroacoustic Music Competition (France), Musica Nova Competition (Prague), CIEJ Electronic Music Awards (Barcelona), Prix Ars Electronica (Linz), Stockholm Electronic Art Awards (Sweden), et ZKM European Bell Days Commission Prize (Germany). Ses oeuvres ont été jouées et diffusées dans le monde entier. www.marioverandi.de Harun Farocki est né en 1944 à Nová Jicin, dans la partie de la Tchécoslovaquie annexée par les allemands. Il a étudié à la Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB) de 1966 à 1968. Aprés avoir occupé quelques postes d´enseignant à Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hambourg, Manille, Munich et Stuttgart, Farocki a été nommé au poste de professeur invité à l´Université de Californie, Berkeley, entre 1993 et 1999. Farocki a réalisé près de 90 films, dont trois longs-métrages, des essais cinématographiques et des documentaires. www.farocki-film.de

One thing after another
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 8:34 | Australie | Royaume-Uni | 2012

The work juxtaposes close up images of an ageing Donald Judd sculpture with a dialogue about biological adaptation, function and vestigial structures. The film appropriates the Judd piece that is said to exist in a place somewhere between art and architecture, but a full view is never shown, just upward looking shots of details and the effects of time and nature upon it that increase in frequency as the film progresses. The treatment of the Judd sculpture transforms it from a formal to a representational structure, becoming a questioning not just of the original, but also of function, the inherent qualities of physical and historical structures and permanence or resistance to change. The editing of the film also gradually develops along with the narrative, thus embodying structural adaptation whilst discussing it. The viewer is then left with questions of temporality and change, be it artistic, social, biological, historical or structural, of what something was, what it is now and what it might become.

Matthew Verdon?s practice deals with man made structures and constructs, challenging and questioning them as an attempt to understand social systems and processes that are in constant flux. Change is an unavoidable part of life, the question is how do we deal with it. Utilising past and vernacular structures, Verdon transforms them with notions of the present to speculate, experiment and adapt in order to think about the nature of things and objects in the world, how we shape them and how they shape us. The outcomes of his practice usually take the form of video, collage and small to medium scale objects. Verdon was born in Brisbane, Australia, and presently lives and works in London. He has studied at Chelsea College of Art, London and Goldsmiths College, London. He has exhibited widely both throughout the United Kingdom and internationally, with recent exhibitions including The Object as Image at Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (2012), An Exchange with Sol Lewitt, MASS MOCA, Massachusetts, USA (2011), Hors Pistes, Pompidou Centre, Paris (2011), All that glitters is not institution, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2010), and Madrid Abierto, La Casa Encendida & Spanish National Radio, Madrid (2010).

Hugelkultur
Vidéo | hdv | couleur et n&b | 9:30 | Australie | Royaume-Uni | 2013

In 1963 a spiral staircase was built in Salvador, Brazil, by the architect Lina Bo Bardi as part of the transformation of an old mill into a museum of modern art. The design of this staircase was based on a vernacular technique for making ox cart wheels. The agricultural practice of hugelkultur involves burying large pieces of old wood that rot over time and subsequently become rich fertiliser, providing enhanced growing conditions for the roots of new plantings. A spoken narrative describes the proposed renovation of an old room in need of repair into a new room of unspecified end uses. Such varying but related notions of material transformation and adaptive re-use are featured in the present work as ways of thinking about how the ?new? is produced and the relationship of such production to the already existent. Featuring filmed, found and hand drawn footage, the video is based upon the idea of a spiral staircase, this being utilised for not only its content but also its form through the structural use of evolving repetitions and loops. The work draws on plant science, architecture and speculation to arrive at a questioning of function, progress and growth.

The work questions the conflation of abstractions such as economic growth and finance with organic natural processes. We hear of flows of capital and liquid assets, but can such dematerialised entities be equated with the movement of water that inherently acts under the influence of natural laws and gravity? Here nature is utilised in an attempt to give monetary concepts and mechanisms a form of naturalised comprehensibility, but perhaps both operate in fundamentally differing ways. This is highlighted in the work through featuring varying uses of running water in relation to accumulation and change over time. Ranging from a biomorphic corporate bank building surrounded by traditional water gardens, to cotton irrigation and fluctuating commodity prices, to a subversion of a Richard Serra’s 1968 film “Hand catching lead”, natural, historical and cultural references are appropriated in order to create a narrative that examines an equation that seems somewhat ubiquitous today.

In this work, I appropriate user tutorials as a genre in order to investigate the relationship between technology and culture. The work presents a teenage vlogger instructing how to use a fictive app.With media increasingly becoming more life-like and life increasingly adapting the logic of media, sleek interfaces of operating systems, internet browsers, and websites makes it difficult to stop, identify, and think critically about how these things actually structure and monopolize our experience, despite the misleading empowerment of “ user-generated content ” or “ customizable ” options. I am interested in interrupting this seemingly closer getting circuit and seeking not only to deconstruct the formal and instrumental aspects of Internet browsing, but also the identities that are constructed with and within it.

Vered Snear (b. Israel 1982) is an artist based in Toronto and Tel Aviv. Recent group exhibitions include: Superpositions, 21st Biennale of Sydney (in collaboration with Brook Andrew), Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2018); Bronx Calling: The Fourth AIM Biennial, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York (2017); I can because you do, Participant Inc, New York (2016); Universum, The International Photography Festival, Jaffa, Israel (2016). Snear was a NYC Art + Law Fellow (2016) and part of the AIM Program, Bronx Museum (2017). She has undertaken residencies at Banff Centre, Canada (2016), MASS MoCA (2018), Vermont Studio Center (2018), and UNSW Art + Design, Australia (2018). Research-based artist Vered Snear investigates the role of visual and textual language to explore intricate relationships between media and ideology. Through her practice, she aims to challenge dominant narratives and representation as a tool that articulates subjectivities, affects, and desires. Working predominantly in video, installation, photography, and sculpture, Snear uses a combination of text and imagery from archives, television, video-sharing and social media that she reworks into fictional scenarios. These fictions hold the potential to create a space of re-imagination and agency.

The Good Life

In the background technicians are installing a prestigious exhibition,whilst a smartly dressed lady is guiding a group of people around a series of pristine white spaces, some of them filled with crates and wrapped-up paintings. Along the way she not only comments on the art but also reveals the building to her audience from a unique perspective. Describing interiors, great views and the city?s vibrant opportunities, the lady turns out to be an estate agent who is selling an up-market architectural proposal and a lifestyle that grafts the ?value? of art with its institutions. Moving through the labyrinthine building, she finds herself lost in narrow corridors and staircases. Meanwhile the future development projects itself into the group?s collective imagination, fed by the visionary architectural model on display. ?The Good Life (a guided tour)? redefines our perception of the art institution and raises our awareness of its part in the ?creative city?, a scenario that is being played out in metropoles around the globe. The apparently ?neutral? frame of the gallery space which envelopes the spiritual and cultural heritage of our society, recedes in favour of that of a real estate opportunity. The estate agent is the embodiment of the denial of any possible negative impact that the creative race between cities in a neo-liberal context might generate. Through a generic language that excludes any notion of ?gentrification?, her hyperbolic tour creates an exclusive identity. The film?s elaborate treatment of sound ? as well as the absence of it ? disrupts the untenable perfection of the architecture, and its mediated forms, making the emptiness of the building sensible, which actually is what the estate agent is selling: a lifestyle fantasy projected on an empty shell. ?The Good Life (a guided tour)? is an autonomous single screen video piece that can be presented either in an exhibition or screening context. In its first presentation the video functioned as a ?marketing tool? for a fictional real estate development ?The Good Life?, which was the title of the Vermeir/Heiremans solo exhibition at Arnolfini, Bristol (UK) in Spring 2009. The show was curated by Nav Haq.

Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 28:7 | Belgique | Royaume-Uni | 2018

In A Modest Proposal, Vermeir & Heiremans are discussing a new financial model with a lawyer. They question if financialisation can be re-purposed towards generating a more equitable arts ecology. Considering the financialisation of public art collections and museum buildings, the financial model should benefit not only investors, but also its stakeholders, the creators of the art`s value, the art workers. The artists propose to financialise Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park as their case-study. It is located close to Battersea Power Station, a former coal-fired power station that will soon house Apple's London headquarters and luxury apartments. The artists propose to "pump" up the gallery`s value, and generate a return for the wider art community. The conversation between artists and lawyer takes place in Vermeir & Heiremans` house, which they define as an art work. Meanwhile the absent-minded lawyer`s assistant often slips away from the discussions. She appears to be able to materialise and dematerialise at will the lofty space by caressing the walls, playing with a scale model of the house or using the latter as a framing device, manipulating the window views. When the artists and the lawyer go on to celebrate the proposal on the loft's rooftop garden she takes control…

The videos and installations of the artist duo Vermeir & Heiremans investigate the complex relationship between economy, spatiality, and social reality in today's highly globalized world. The artists define their own house as an art work, which they use as a framing device to focus on the growing financialisation of the arts, real estate and daily life in general. The duo raises questions about the role the arts play within the ever-growing entanglement between urban development, financialisation and governing. The artists employ financial tools, historical references, technology, and cinematic language to reflect on social codes as well as on the production of value in today's artistic and non-artistic realms. Vermeir & Heiremans have presented their work at 10th Istanbul Biennial (2007), Arnolfini, Bristol (2009), Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin (2010), Viennale, Vienna (2011), 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennial (2012), Manifesta 9, Limburg (2012), Argos, Brussels (2012), Extra City, Antwerp (2012), 13th Istanbul Biennale (2013), Rotwand Gallery, Zurich (2014), Triennale Brugge (2015), Dojima River Biennale, Osaka (2015), Curated by_Vienna at Georg Kargl Gallery (2015), Transmediale, Berlin (2016), Bucharest Biennale 7 (2016), Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (2010, 2012, 2017), Glassyard Gallery, Budapest (2018), Art Brussels (2018), The Atlantic Project, Plymouth (2018), Pump House Gallery, London (2018)

La Belgique est un pays connu pour son « imprécision ». En tenant compte de ceci, ces deux films belges plongent dans l'univers des formes culturelles « quasi ». L'une des notions les plus vagues dans le lexique culturel est celle du « collectif », et ces films examinent des actions artistiques collectives en Belgique ainsi que leur point de rencontre avec la politique dominante et sous-culturelle, et les idéologies culturelles qui les frôlent. Collaboration entre l?historienne de l'art basée à Bruxelles (Belgique) Catherine Vertige et l?artiste Kosten Koper, ces films ne sont ni un avis de décès de l'idéalisme culturel, ni un conte doux-amer sur la perte de l'utopie, mais une série de rencontres soulevant des questions sur les archétypes du collectif, qui ont émergé au cours des recherches et du tournage, allant de la micro-institution à l'orgie. « Est-il encore vivant, ou est-il mort ? » est ce que Resnais a déclaré être la seule question qui méritait d'être posée dans l'art, et le médium du film est utilisé comme outil de recherche pour examiner la valeur et l'inutilité de l'histoire.


Catherine Vertige est née en 1971. Elle est historienne de l'art et membre fondatrice de Komplot, un collectif de conservateurs d?art contemporain basé à Bruxelles. Kosten Koper est né en 1970. Il est artiste, cinéaste, musicien, éditeur de musique électronique, conservateur et organisateur de manifestations. Il a été membre de Diskono, un groupe qui créait des situations et environnements propices à une perception créative de la musique.

Videotage (literally merging the two concepts of "Video" and "Montage") is a non-profit interdisciplinary artist collective, which focuses on the development of video and new media art in Hong Kong. Founded in 1985, Videotage began as a facilitator for collaborative time-based projects. In a small shared office with two chairs and table, Videotage`s support to artists came in the form of labour and equipment for production and post-production, and the exchange of ideas. Videotage has since expanded to include publications, education, exhibitions and screenings. Videotage is a vital link in presenting media arts to a broader community. Programming is guided by its Artistic Director and full-time staff, and governed by a Board of Directors. Videotage aims to boost awareness of Hong Kong video and new media art activities locally and internationally. Our artists members has participated in numerous cultural exchanges and art festivals. Including Asia-Pacific Triennial (Australia); European Media Art Festival (Germany); Experimenta (Australia); Hong Kong International Film Festival; Hong Kong Art Festival; Image Forum Festival (Japan); Kwangju Biennial (Korea); Multimedia Art Asia Pacific (Australia); Transmediale (Germany); Venice Biennale (Italy); and Videobrasil (Brazil). Videotage also invites internationally renowned artists and curators to present talks, seminars and workshop in Hong Kong. Previous guests include: Francesca da Rimini, cyber-feminist; Gary Hill, video artist; Barbara London, curator, Department of Film and Video, Museum of Modern Art, New York; Momentum, mixed electronic media performance group; Jun-jieh Wang, Taiwan-based video artist, among others.

Documentaire | dv | couleur | 65:0 | Belgique | Roumanie | 2010

Dans le village roumain de Dragalina, Radu, 17 ans, ronge son ennui aux côtés de sa mère instable. Enfermé dans cet univers lourd et apathique, l?adolescent semble attendre un hypothétique changement de vie. Les réalisateurs partent à la rencontre de ce jeune homme, leur cousin, aux prises avec une quête d?identité et de sens qu?il a lui-même du mal à cerner.


"Ecaterina Vidick est née en 1981 à Bruxelles. Après des études de mise en scène à l?INSAS, elle se dirige vers le documentaire sonore. Elle réalise son premier travail en 2004, à l?accueil des urgences d?un hôpital bruxellois situé au c?ur de la ville, où indigents et étrangers cherchent autre chose que des soins. C?est cet « autre chose », justement, qu?elle recherche dans chacune de ses créations où les aspects social et humain occupent une place de choix. « Dragalina », pour une première collaboration fraternelle, est aussi sa première expérience cinématographique." Né le 10 novembre 1978 à Bruxelles, photographe de formation (INRACI, Académie des Beaux-Arts de Saint Gilles, le 75?), Sherban Vidick se tourne vers le cinéma pour le projet Dragalina, initié par sa s?ur Ecaterina. En parallèle, il entame la réalisation d?un projet photographique autour de ce même village et de ses habitants. Ses influences tant en photo qu?en cinéma se situent quelque part entre Raymond Depardon et Stephen Shore

2009, in the high plateau of the Peruvian jungle, near the border to Ecuador, a mining company forces their way into the depths of the forest to search for mineral resources. They do this with the government`s permission, but without consent from the indigenous people, the Awajun natives who live there. Known for their fearlessness, the Awajun stand up to the invaders. But in the fight for their land they are brutally struck down by the government. Violence breeds counter-violence. Years later, young natives learn to use the videocameras and start to follow the trail of violence.

En passant par le front du Bassac, dans Phnom Penh, si l?on est un voyageur attentif, on sera surpris de voir surgir une construction qui pourrait avoir l?air d?un immeuble, mais qui ressemble davantage à un grouillement architectural étonnant. On ne perçoit tout d?abord qu?un enchevêtrement de lignes bleues, de points verts et d?étoffes colorées, en suspension sur ce qui devait être autrefois une façade blanche d?architecture moderne.On apprend alors que ce grand organisme vivant a été construit par l?architecte cambodgien Van Molyvann sur le modèle de l?utopie de la Cité radieuse...


Jean Luc Vilmouth was born in Moselle and is now living in Paris. Since 1978, he has been exhibiting his works throughout the world. He also works for art and architecture magazines and writes books on art. He realised several public works. As a director, he made several short films and video installations.

? On the 3rd of March 2009, Clemens K. the head of finances of an Amsterdam arts fund, disappeared with 15.8 million Euros, his three children and two women, and they have not been seen ever since. The people in his former environment are left behind in shock: bewildered, angry, surprised and concerned. Strangely enough, it is not so much the massive amount he?s stolen: it is the treachery, which affects them most. Unexpected, and apparently out of nowhere, he?s broken all conventions, on a personal and professional level. 

The point of departure of the film is the paradoxical, almost mythical idea that the meticulous man of numbers, he, who has sent innumerable warnings and corrections to us artists, did what most artists want to do- but do so, only in a symbolic manner: crossing boundaries, putting his own needs and wants first with little need for a justification to the outside world. The cliché of the 'dull' world of the accountant versus the 'exciting' life of the artist is being turned upside down in the film. Why is it, that someone suddenly does something so extreme, so out of character? Where, when and how did it start with Clemens K., the good-looking, kind and helpful family man from the descriptions? Was he the nice guy they saw in him, or was he wearing a mask all along? What made Sammy run? The time before, the current situation, and the consequences of the fraud are being narrated by an actor speaking from the bookkeepers point of view and the people interviewed: the ones left behind. Next to the interviews that I will conduct, we hear a voice over which represents my own version of the truth, a second layer introducing another form of speculation. The man, Clemens is thus seen through a kaleidoscope, speculating on possible motives.

The End of Fear
Documentaire | mov | couleur et n&b | 69:9 | Pays-Bas | 2018

Who`s still afraid of red, yellow and blue? The most famous abstract painting of the twentieth century has invoked much more than just one response to this provocative question. Fifty years after `Who`s Afraid of Red , Yellow and Blue III`, we question the meaning of art over the life of this famous, celebrated and mourned work by Barnett Newman.

Barbara VISSER (1966, the Netherlands) studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Cooper Union in New York and the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht and is an awarded artist. She has also worked as the artistic director of IDFA. Her work focuses on cultural and historical narratives and how these become manifest through art, design, media and science. By challenging conventions in storytelling and image-making, and questioning our memory- and belief systems, Visser aims to provoke a new perception of what a normality has rendered invisible.

Herbarium
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 7:25 | Pays-Bas | 2013

?Herbarium? is a cinematographic observation based on the changes in the classification of plants. Going from classical taxonomy to genetic data-storage, Visser wonders what is left when the plant its separated from its physical features. What is a plant to us, without the sensation of smell, texture and its visual appearance? In a long abandoned tropical greenhouse formerly used by the biology faculty of Wageningen University, during a full moon night, the dry plants are reanimated, in a visual language where nature is shown as an artefact, devoid of any natural context.

Barbara Visser researches the relationship between registration and dramatization. Her work is driven by fascinations around original and copy, historical narratives and constructed biographies, which she translates into subjective documentaries. By questioning the authenticity of images and their interpretation by the viewer, she influences the shape and the content of the work simultaneously. Projects are executed in an array of media: photography, film, video, text, printed matter and performance. Infiltrating into existing systems leads to a wide diversity of works. Visser has participated in the Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil (2006), Manifesta, Trento, Italy (2008), Architecture Biennale, Dutch Pavillion, Venice, Italy (2010), Art Biennale, Dutch Pavillion group show (2011). In 2011 and 12 she?s written and directed the film C.K. (2012). Awards for her work include the Dutch Cultural Media Fund Documentary Award (2010), the dr. A. H. Heineken Award for art and science (2008)
