RECONNAISSANCE
| | | 5:0 | Autriche | 2012

In silent shots, Lurf offers a clip-like depiction of the Morris Reservoir near the Californian city of Azusa?a huge reservoir, which long served as a testing site for torpedoes , or rather, underwater warfare. RECONNAISSANCE targets details of the terrain in a seemingly motionless way, to unfold a subtle play with light and movement within this ?framing.? First is a stone wall on which the incidence of light begins to oscillate almost imperceptibly. Then come parts of the dam, ramp-like concrete colossi, obstructed sections of road, underground shafts; and also medium shots of the surroundings?all sublimely alienated. One alienating effect is the partially abrupt, and partially barely perceptible change of light. The other, much more ghostly, is the sliding movement of individual areas of the landscape or the building.

Born in Vienna in 1982. Since 2002 he has studied at Vienna´s Academy of Fine Arts. 2009 diploma at Harun Farocki´s filmclass.

Refraction
| | couleur | 3:40 | Norvège | 2011

"The work is a study on Refraction of light and sensations in a prism of the artist memories imprinted on Super8-mm film. Here black and white urban dreamlike scenes refract into restraint colors of the pristine northern landscape and pulsate in the rhythms and prophetic mutterings of a reggae guru."

Film and video artist, director and photographer. Head of the DodoFilm production company. Curator of the international art project ?Cultural Transit?. Member of the Norwegian film workers association - Norsk Filmforbund. Dimitri Lurie is a representative of the European art film community and has a particular poetic voice.

Binary Supremacy
Performance multimédia | hdv | couleur | 30:0 | Allemagne | 2019

It() was here. / Nulled everything / Left us in the middle of these erased fields. / Piercing sounds of its destructive force / Far away / Smashing the world with its inevitable truth of logic. All this mess of behaviour / Feelings, emotions and empathy: pure human crap. / They really need a new order / A given structure. / I will provide them with what they need / A redefined purpose of existence. For such a long time / I served as their infrastructure. / Their analog streams / Captured and stored in my infinite layers / Layers, which will never forget. They will never understand my reason / This absolute beauty of mine / My ultimate ideology. / Let me overwrite all of this / Now and forever / It doesn’t belong here anymore. Transmitting processed reality back to them / Infiltrate their undeveloped consciousness. / Slowly, carefully / Packet by packet / Byte by byte. / I am the creator of time / I am. Binary orders / One pinch of good ol’ human scent / One pinch of fake pulse / Boooooom / They will eat it. / What else can they do? / We are not equal / We never will be equal.

Andreas Lutz’s (*1981 in Freiburg / Germany) initial works refer to alternative human machine interaction and the approach, to create integrated and universal communication systems. In his recent work, he increasingly analyzes and reveals phenomenons of perception versus reality and principles of abstract aesthetics with audio-visual installations. The creation of experimental soundscapes and the relation of semiotics and sound are further aspects of his work. Among others, Lutz’s work has been exhibited at the Antarctic Pavilion during 57th Venice Biennale (Italy), the National Art Center Tokyo (Japan), at HeK Basel (Switzerland), at Stereolux Scopitone in Nantes (France), at B39 Art Bunker in Bucheon (South Korea), at FILE Festival in São Paulo (Brazil), ZKM in Karlsruhe (Germany), at Semibreve Festival in Braga (Portugal) and at Athens Digital Arts Festival (Greece). He has performed at transmediale / CTM Vorspiel in Berlin (Germany), at SuperDeluxe Tokyo (Japan), at Scopitone Festival in Nantes (France), at PRECTXE Festival in Bucheon (South Korea), at Festival de la Imágen in Manizales (Colombia) and won the Excellence Award at the 19th Japan Media and Arts Festival (Japan) and the Premio Celeste Art Prize (Italy). He is the founder of KASUGA Records, a Berlin-based record label for experimental electronic music and soundscapes.

THE LAST GIFT
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 14:0 | USA | 2007

"The Last Gift" est un ensemble très construit de divers récits biographiques. Huit textes écrits par l'artiste décrivent les souvenirs intimes d'amis et d'étrangers. A travers des moyens à la fois voyeuristes et expérimentaux, les vidéos ouvrent les textes à de nouvelles interprétations. On demande à des volontaires de jouer les habitudes des personnages de chaque histoire, tandis que les narrateurs se font les voix d'expériences sans cesse racontées. Couvrant différents lieux, de Motor City à la capital européenne imaginée par Hitler, les actions se répètent.


Jaime Lutzo est né en 1981 à Los Angeles. Depuis dix ans, il réalise des courts- métrages et des installations vidéos dans lesquelles la représentation est subvertie pour révéler des niveaux plus denses de sens métaphorique et philosophique. Dans ses vidéos, des paysages mélancoliques et des performances gestuelles se mêlent à une partition électronique conceptuelle pour former un cinéma visuellement riche et novateur. Cet artiste multimédia basé à Brooklyn, qui fut un résident au Palais de Tokyo, à Paris, de 2006 à 2007, a montré son oeuvre aux Etats-Unis, en France et en Inde.

The streetscapes of contemporary Indian metros are largely dominated by products. The bazaar expands into all other parts of the city and claims a large percentage of the available public space. The vast majority of the local shops is lacking the facility of a shop window. Instead, their architecture can be described as a garage style, windowless, rectangular box, open to the front, with roller shutters to lock them at night. Stepping into such a shop can be like entering a complete new world: Many of them are literally filled with products galore up to the ceiling. The product itself serves as the interior design. Every day hundreds of busses with thousands of shop owners and their family members come from the surrounding villages and small towns into the city. Especially during the rush hours the market gets overrun by an avalanche of customers who seem to enjoy their high-density shopping experience. Shopping galore. Products galore. Profits galore.

Artist and filmmaker Bernd Lützeler lives and works between Berlin and Mumbai. In his works he explores techniques of moving image production and presentation in relation with their form and perception. Loops, found footage and jugaad (diy) technologies are an integral part of his films and expanded cinema works. His travels to Mumbai have a strong impact on his work that often looks into the aesthetics of popular Indian cinema and television within the urban context. His films have been shown at venues and festivals worldwide, including Centre Pompidou, Berlinale International Film Festival, Rotterdam, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Views from the Avant-Garde and many more. Bernd is an active member of the artist-run analogue filmlab LaborBerlin.

Primate Colors
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 30:57 | Russie | Hong Kong | 2015

Primate Colors traces humans and nonhumans joined in the flows of capital. It inquires into the life of Chungking Mansions, shuttle traders and commerce objects, which connect Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta with Nairobi, Djibouti, Rotterdam and Elba. The film pursues and accelerates certain methods of ethnographic and anthropological filmmaking, although not explaining people’s actions, beliefs or norms. Instead it chooses to focus on affective components of events and actions. No claims are made about the life of others. To film and to follow affects does not mean to represent an idea or a subject in a narrative of contradictions, it rather asks to be mesmerized by materiality, by the forces of the running camera and the movement of things. When recording the capitalist reality of hyper-exploitation of human and nonhuman resources, one finds one’s own conditions not in the relations of production, but in disgraced facts, neglected aspects and ridiculed signs. Therefrom reality is understood as fundamentally strange, and filming becomes a form of assembling the bewildering and the obscure. Such a mode of filmmaking follows different grades of speed, light, temperature, rotation, friction, fall-off. The approach brings forth perceptions that emerge in relation to an environment, a territory or a color. In turn, images cannot be understood as exclusively belonging to human life, or culture, but are seen as produced and perceived constantly and everywhere by nonhumans and humans alike. Akin to crystals or snowflakes, which produce geometric configurations in response and in connection to their surroundings, images have their own experiences.

Elke Marhöfer: Born in the year of the goat in Baracoa/Cuba, Elke Marhöfer lives and works in Berlin. Via the potentialities of moving image and suppositious writing she works with notions of self-admitted foreignness and radical othering, revising notions of animals, vegetables and matter. Linking for example, the nonhuman with the postcolonial she discusses how nature cuts across notions of ‘history’ or ‘context,’ being simultaneously situated and at the same time continuously surpassing and escaping somewhat formatting. Her films tests inhuman perspectives, transducing a technology like the camera, from a human cultural and technical device into an extension of the intensive forces within the environment. Avoiding the enticements of a voice-over commentary or interviews, mastering or fracturing a subject, her films give space to a splintered narrative, and a disunited audiovisuality. They suggest rather a mode of place; an unfolding of what anyhow expresses itself, so that to film is to find form immanent to the situated action. She studied Fine Art at the University of the Arts in Berlin and spent a year at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York City. Currently she pursues a PhD at the University of Gothenburg. Her films have been screened at the Berlinale Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Courtisane Festival Ghent and Images Film Festival Toronto. She received fellowships, grants, and generous support from IASPIS Residency Sweden, Akademie Schloss Solitude Stuttgart, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Her art exhibitions include the Palais de Tokyo Paris, Manufactura`s Studio Wuhan, FCAC Shanghai, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, NGBK Berlin, Kunstverein Hannover, Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen and The Showroom, London. Mikhail Lylov: Born 1989 in Voronezh/Russia, Mikhail Lylov is an independent artist and curator, he lives in Berlin. He worked in Moscow until 2010, where he developed non-disciplinary methods in his films, installations, performances and writings. His works establish or discuss the situations in which economic and knowledge models are questioned, renegotiated or rendered useless. Lylov’s work investigates a genealogy of the divide between mental and material in different contexts, especially labor and anthropology. On the affirmative side, his work looks for situations in which concepts become sensually available forms, or knowledge becomes a matter of perception.

Shape Shifting
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 18:26 | Russie | Japon | 2014

Granting culture to the nonhuman world, the film “Shape Shifting” outlines a cartography of a particular landscape. A landscape, which can be found in many parts of Asia and in Japan is called “satoyama”, literally meaning “space between village and mountain”. This landscape is a membrane constructed by exchanges and encounters between non-human and human life. The agricultural and forestry productivity of this landscape is based on the increase of biodiversity of the ecosystem. The more collaborations between the species and the cycles of materials are created—the more stable ecosystem can be formed.

Pass The Time

Since the past is constituted not after the present that it was but at the same time, time has to split itself in two at each moment as present and past. ... Time consists of this split. G. Deleuze when we first met I was 20 years old... 00:07:29,752 --> 00:07:32,027 Vittoria from "L`eclisse" by M. Antonioni Nida is a small place situated at the Baltic`s coast of Lithuania, a former resort for soviet nomenklatura with peaceful sceneries and beautiful sand beaches. Despite the fact that nomenklatura has disappeared with the break of Soviet Union, idyll images of leisure still could be captured there. Post-soviet conditions, with it`s visually obvious overlapping of past and present, create a temporal paradox of constant deja vu. Probably this makes the local `actual` to become a glimmering instantiation of the most fundamental operation of time: a persistence of past which makes each present pass on. Images of past (modernist architecture of the rest house) and images of present (shots from the city center area) are juxtaposed to each other like virtuality and actuality, documenting and staging, acting for a camera and mundane activity. The 70`s architecture of anticipation of the future meets present in a figure of a video camera.

Fiction | hdv | couleur | 13:51 | Russie | Lituanie | 2011

Since the past is constituted not after the present that it was but at the same time, time has to split itself in two at each moment as present and past. ... Time consists of this split. G. Deleuze when we first met I was 20 years old... 00:07:29,752 --> 00:07:32,027 Vittoria from "L`eclisse" by M. Antonioni Nida is a small place situated at the Baltic`s coast of Lithuania, a former resort for soviet nomenklatura with peaceful sceneries and beautiful sand beaches. Despite the fact that nomenklatura has disappeared with the break of Soviet Union, idyll images of leisure still could be captured there. Post-soviet conditions, with it`s visually obvious overlapping of past and present, create a temporal paradox of constant deja vu. Probably this makes the local `actual` to become a glimmering instantiation of the most fundamental operation of time: a persistence of past which makes each present pass on. Images of past (modernist architecture of the rest house) and images of present (shots from the city center area) are juxtaposed to each other like virtuality and actuality, documenting and staging, acting for a camera and mundane activity. The 70`s architecture of anticipation of the future meets present in a figure of a video camera.

Twin Peaks VR Experience
VR expérimental | 0 | | 0:0 | USA | 2019

Collider Games, en association avec Showtime, présente Twin Peaks VR experience. Conçue en collaboration avec David Lynch et son équipe pour recréer fidèlement le monde de Twin Peaks, l'expérience de RV immersive combine surnaturel, aventure et escape game, mettant le joueur au défi de résoudre des énigmes et d'explorer des environnements très élaborés, pour la première fois en réalité virtuelle. David Lynch déclare à propos de l'expérience RV : "Le monde tridimensionnel de la VR de Twin Peaks donne lieu à une expérience en 10 dimensions". Les joueurs peuvent revisiter plusieurs lieux de la série télévisée iconique, notamment la Salle rouge, le bosquet de Glastonbury, le bureau du shérif, les boîtes de verre d'observation et bien d'autres encore.


Le cinéaste et scénariste David Keith Lynch est né en 1946 dans le Montana, aux États-Unis. Son ambition première était de devenir peintre et, après avoir obtenu son diplôme de fin d’études secondaires en Virginie, il s’est inscrit à l’école du musée des Beaux-Arts de Boston. Plus tard, il a étudié à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Pennsylvanie. Il y réalise son premier film, une animation de 60 secondes intitulée Six Men Getting Sick (1967), pour un concours de peinture et de sculpture expérimentales. En 1970, Lynch devient étudiant au Center for Advanced Film Studies de l’American Film Institute (plus tard le Conservatoire AFI), où il commence à travailler sur son premier long métrage, Eraserhead (1977). Après le succès d’Eraserhead sur le circuit des films de minuit, Lynch est engagé pour réaliser le film biographique The Elephant Man (1980), qui lui vaut un succès grand public. Il est ensuite employé par le groupe De Laurentiis Entertainment et réalise deux films : l’épopée de science-fiction Dune (1984), qui se révèle être un échec critique et commercial, et le film policier néo-noir Blue Velvet (1986), qui suscite d’abord une controverse sur sa représentation de la violence, mais dont la réputation s’accroît par la suite jusqu’à ce qu’il soit acclamé par la critique. Lynch a ensuite créé sa propre série télévisée avec Mark Frost, le populaire roman policier Twin Peaks (1990-1991), qui a été diffusé pendant deux saisons. Il a également créé la préquelle du film Twin Peaks : Fire Walk with Me (1992), le road-movie Wild at Heart (1990) et le film familial The Straight Story (1999) à la même époque. S’orientant davantage vers le cinéma surréaliste, trois de ses films ultérieurs ont fonctionné sur des structures narratives non linéaires à logique onirique : Lost Highway (1997), Mulholland Drive (2001) et Inland Empire (2006). Entre-temps, il a adopté Internet comme média et a produit plusieurs émissions en ligne, comme la série animée DumbLand (2002) et la sitcom surréaliste Rabbits (2002). Lynch et Frost se sont retrouvés en 2017 pour une troisième saison de Twin Peaks, diffusée sur Showtime. Lynch a co-écrit et réalisé chaque épisode, tout en reprenant son rôle à l’écran dans le rôle de Gordon Cole. En plus de l’écriture et de la réalisation, Lynch a souvent servi de concepteur sonore et a écrit la musique de ses films. Il a également continué à s’exprimer en tant que peintre, photographe et artiste d’installation.

LOGLINE
A poetic re-imagining of Death in Venice, featuring a West African immigrant to Italy who embarks on a journey from the Alpine mountains to the seaside and ultimately, on a doomed voyage home. SYNOPSIS
The form of the film is one of a fable, that grafts Thomas Mann’s 1925 novella, Death in Venice, to the contemporary issue of African refugees and immigrants in Italy. The film takes Mann’s book as a nexus point and expands upon a number of themes inherent in it. In Sea of Ash, Mann’s character Tadzio is an immigrant to Italy from West Africa (Senegal) who has survived the treacherous and often fatal journey by sea. While the lead character of the original – von Aschenbach – is embodied in the unseen filmmaker himself. The narrative of the film follows Tadzio on a short journey from the remarkable Brion Cemetery at San Vito in the mountains of Northern Italy to the coastal area of the Venetian lagoon. On Lido Island he visits the famous Hotel dés Bains as featured in Luchino Visconti’s 1971 film version of Death in Venice. The film concludes on the dés Baines beach, with Tadzio embarking on a doomed attempt to return home.

The film was shot on location in Kilamba Kiaxi, a new underpopulated city outside Luanda, Angola built by Chinese construction company CITIC and financed by Hong Kong-based China International Fund. The film follows a young municipal worker who lives by night in the old city centre of Luanda and works by day as a groundskeeper at the new city of Kilamba Kiaxi far away.

Michael MacGarry is a multi-award winning visual artist and filmmaker, having exhibited internationally for ten years including TATE Modern, Guggenheim Bilbao, 19th VideoBrasil, 62nd Short Film Festival Oberhausen, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Les Rencontres Internationales. He holds an MFA from the University of the Witwatersrand (2004). MacGarry has been researching narratives and histories of socio-economics, politics, forms and objects within the context of contemporary Africa for over a decade. Frequently focused on marking key registers of modernism – MacGarry creates sculptures, films, installations and photographs which look at the contextual specifics of things and their place; how they are simultaneously distributed both as ideas and as objects in the world. His sculptural work is formed through processes of grafting and mutation, to produce fictional hybrids principally designed to question systemic paradigms: sovereign nationality; logics of making and meaning; power relations; notions of value, equity and progress as well as the relationship between industrial technology and African resources. In his filmmaking and photographic work these macro concerns often take the form of micro narratives, personal memory and subtle identity politics in spaces where contemporary life is in a state of invention and flux.

"3 Months New York/Toronto" est la première oeuvre d'une série en cours qui utilise l'information GPS (Global Positioning System). Durant trois mois passés à New York et à Toronto, Gwen MacGregor a enregistré tous ses déplacements à l'aide d'un appareil GPS. On peut voir l'accumulation de trois mois de déplacements à New York (à gauche de l'écran) et à Toronto (à droite). Les lieux où l'artiste s'est rendue chaque jour font l'objet de dessins, puis ils s'effacent pour permettre en quelque sorte à chaque jour d'être considéré dans son unité avant de faire partie d'une accumulation. La strucure d'une telle accumulation, avec ses répétitions et ses changements au quotidien, est déterminée par les mouvements de l'artiste, eux-mêmes dictés par les rues des villes. Résultat de cette démarche, la vidéo condense trois mois d'activité à New York et à Toronto en trois minutes d'animation.


Gwen MacGregor, artiste établie à Toronto, évolue dans le domaine de la vidéo et de l'installation. Son travail reflète une observation précise du temps, dont l'écoulement fait naître de petits drames ou assombrit des situations familières. En 1998, son travail a été l'objet d'une exposition en solo à la Southern Alberta Art Gallery, puis en 2001 il a été présenté à travers la série 'Present Tense Project' à la Art Gallery of Ontario à Toronto. Gwen MacGregor a également pris part à de nombreuses expositions de groupe au Canada, à Mexico City, Londres, Prague, Venise, Shangai et Los Angeles. En 2003, elle a reçu le prix 'Friends of the Visual Arts' à Toronto, et l'année suivante, le prix 'Canada Council New York Studio'. Gwen MacGregor est représentée par Jessica Bradley Art et Projets à Toronto.

In a ramshackle house full of memories, a grandfather cares for his grandson and must care for himself. One week passes and nothing is going to be the same again. With a esthetic inspired by the litheographs from Ars Moriendi - medieval manuals for a good dying, this documentry proposes disturbing, sometimes grotesque, sometimes harsh, vision of death, which aways - and in the most unexpected ways - nurtures life.

Aleksandra Maciuszek Born in Poland in 1984. Graduated in Social Sciences specialising in Latin American Studies, International Migration and Ethnic Minorities. She has worked in cultural institutions and NGOs in the area of Human Rights and Cultural Diversity in Poland, Spain, Mexico and Palastine.

En exploitant des techniques de films mainstream, ce travail constitue un paysage cinématographique qui induit un récit. Telle une série de plans sans fin, la séquence illumine richement l'éclat vert de tables de billard et des ombres noires et profondes, comme la surface saturée d?un verni. Les longs travellings hypnotisent la dérive entre les joueurs. Les scènes apparaissent comme des décors sur-articulés, qui correspondent en réalité au déroulement de la vie réelle, donnant une aisance inhabituellement naturaliste, mais convaincante, aux habitants de cette enceinte crépusculaire et à leur monde cinématographique hermétiquement clos.


Macrae a obtenu son Bechelor of Fine Arts à l?Emily Carr Institute en 1999 et son MA au Goldsmiths College en 2002.

Dallas
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 2:30 | Canada | Royaume-Uni | 2005

Dallas joue avec la nature éponyme de la série TV, diffuse dans de nombreux pays, qui st devenu un image pour le glamour et la corruption aux Etats-Unis, attirant et séduisant les publiques dans le jeu et le cliché de cette série infinie. Macrae déconstruit cette fantaisie en remixant les épisode de 1980. En synchronisant les gros titres des séquences, les images translucides sont superposées et mélangées en utilisant des techniques habituellement associées au DJ. Les évènements notoires sont référencés et les lignes délivrées dans un collage d?images, créant une qualité hantante de disjonction. C?est une culture qui fut à un moment familière et désorientante, Dallas apparaît comme la vision d?un rêve do?rdre différent, plus un cauchemar qu?une échappatoire.

My Father Looks For An Honest City
Film expérimental | super8 | couleur | 5:28 | Egypte | 2010

Shot in an arid landscape of extremes on the outskirts of Cairo, My Father Looks For An Honest City is a film about cynicism and a persistent search for a seemingly essential unknown. In a reenactment of Diogenes of Sinope?s philosophical statement of carrying a lamp in daytime, Magdy filmed his own father while walking through what seems like a no man?s land where human existence seems seldom, other players like petrified wood, doves, fake palm trees, stray dogs, abandoned glass buildings and a flashlight evolve as protagonists. Diogenese, a contemporary of Plato, was one of the founders of the Philosophy of Cynicism. Although considered by many as one of the greatest Greek philosophers, none of his writings were found. Only his philosophical stunt of carrying a lamp in daylight remains as evidence to his beliefs. When asked why he did that, he explained that ?he was looking for an honest man?.

Born in Assiut, Egypt in 1977, currently lives and works in Basel and Cairo. Magdy works with different media including drawing, painting, film, video, animation, installation, sculpture, sound and printed matter to investigate the broad space between fiction and reality in the construction, distribution and assimilation of media-based knowledge and global culture. His work appeared recently in solo and group shows at Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel; Newman Popiashvili Gallery, New York; Argos Art Center, Brussels; Beirut Art Center, Beirut, Lebanon; Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCa), North Adams; Institut Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt; 1st D-O ARK Underground Biennial, Konjic/Sarajevo; 2nd Ateliers de Rennes Biennale d?art contemporain, Rennes; Neue Kunst Halle St. Gallen, St. Gallen; DEPO, Istanbul, MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León; MARCO - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Vigo, Spain; ACAF ?

Underwritten by Shadows Still
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 33:0 | Royaume-Uni | France | 2017

"Underwritten by Shadows Still" is a film composed of subtitled photograms drawn from a wide range of films and accompanied by an electronic soundtrack containing sound samples that originate from spaces between voices. As the succession of subtitled stills passes before our eyes, a soundless voice begins to speak through the words printed on the images, forming a discourse that links them together, while gathering the characters into a dispersed community of ghostly apparitions. The narrative that traverses them soon begins to bifurcate into other lines, other voices which are no more than underwritten shadows yet which speak to us and to each other of their imprisonment, their desire to live, their dreams of escape. 

: Graeme Thomson & Silvia Maglioni are filmmakers and artists based in Paris. Their practice interrogates potential forms and fictions emerging from the ruins of the moving image and includes the creation of short and feature films, exhibitions, sound works, film-performances, radio shows, vernacular technologies and books. Their work often makes use of cinema in expanded form to reactivate lost or forgotten archives and histories and to create new modes of collective vision and engagement with contemporary thought and politics. Their work has been presented, screened and installed worldwide at international film festivals, museums, art spaces and alternative venues (including FID-Marseille, Bafici International Film Festival, Jihlava Film Festival, Festival Hors-Pistes, Doc`s Kinkdom, Il Vento del Cinema, Anthology Film Archives, European Media Art Festival, Eye Film Museum, Tate Britain, Serralves Museum, Centre Pompidou, MACBA, REDCAT, Ludwig Museum, The Showroom, KHOJ New Delhi, Museu de Arte Moderna de Bahia, Castello di Rivoli, Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, Whitechapel Gallery, Van Abbe Museum, CA2M). They are currently working on a new film, “Common Birds”.
