In memory of ancient humans, God issued commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai and said, "can not kill." However Nietzsche tells us that God has been dead already. Human beings created God, but also exterminated God. We childbirth themselves, but also slay ourselves.

librement inspirée du village de propagande nord coréen, Kijong-dong, Hayoun KWON révèle un « lieu-décor » et nous plonge dans la fiction, accomplissant son voyage par procuration. Le film témoigne de ce village fantôme dans son véritable état : un mécanisme de fiction. La réalité d’une frontière face à sa mise en scène... Un village inatteignable autrement que par l’imagination.
Hayoun Kwon est née à Seoul (Corée du Sud) en 1981. Elle a commencé ses études d’art à l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, puis a été diplômée du Fresnoy – Studio national des Arts contemporains en 2011. Le travail de Hayoun Kwon traite principalement de la mémoire (individuelle comme collective) et des limites en ne cessant de brouiller les pistes. Elle confronte l’intention à son interprétation, la construction à la fiction, la remémoration à l’invention. Elle interroge les rapports ambivalents entre réalité et fiction, entre théatre et réel.
A visual and soundscaped short ambience voyage through an utopian, ghost-like city-state, which works like a small essay on the portuguese dictatorship.

The Nazis set up a concentration camp in Ebensee. Nürnberg and Peuker wonder what conclusions they can draw from the topography about dealing with the past. The takes remain static; a woman’s voice dryly contributing information from off screen is all that clarifies the context within contemporary history. A site that looks like a dirt road turns out to be the “Löwengang (Lion’s Walk),” which the camp’s prisoners were driven down like animals to reach a tunnel that had to be dug. As soon as the film moves to the residential area that was founded on the site of the concentration camp shortly after the end of the war, surprise at the lack of sensitivity in dealing with the past mixes into the off-screen commentary. What Zement aims to get at is the ambiguity of this proximity of commemorative site and settlement.

The project Two within close range is an investigation of urban spaces that remain private or inaccessible despite their public significance. The urban structures and familiar places - a park and a construction site with a disputed past - are used to reflect the socio-political issues in the area outside the walled city of Jerusalem. Instead of remaining invisible and unnoticeable in the everyday environment, aspects of contemporary experience of place are revealed through observations of the usage patterns of the selected sites, the Rockefeller Garden and the Nusseibeh building. In this way, they become the centre of attention. In the work, the two sites are represented through still images, video and 8 mm film corresponding with written narratives weaved together in an attempt to re-write and expand what already exists as the oral history of these places. The written narratives deal with the recent past of the area, as well as historical and political narratives, through a more descriptive and spatial approach. By using official information, personal stories collected from the area and fictional elements, a mix of voices and positions appear in order to reproduce and examine recent, at times unnoticed, history.

There is a huge amount of well-known media reports recorded in Sarajevo during the Siege (1992-1996). Media framed those events, streets, places and people into well-known images, common representations of war. Audience around the world was/is able to watch such imagery, over and over again. Adla Isanović erased the whole urban scene and context out of it, leaving only images of people. In that way, she explores how does the audience`s relationship to such imagery of people, whose context is erased-change. After pictures, what remains? What is our relationship with such images, representations, subjectivity, knowledge, with facts, feelings, emotions and experiences?

Last Person Shooter examine a range of both human and mechanical modes of vision. By way of a series of historical scenes reconstructed as 3D architectural models, the historical context of machine vision and its underlying concepts are conjured. These models are explored by an invisible protagonist, embodying the familiar, yet antiquated aesthetic of a first-person shooter. The work opens with a reconstruction of the assassination of Ahmed Jabri, a Palestinian militant who was targeted by an Israeli drone in November 2012. The assassination was documented simultaneously both by Palestinian passersby and by the IDF’s drone, creating two parallel, conflicting narratives: these were then uploaded to Youtube and tweeted, in what was in effect a war of images. The video leads into a dreamlike digital desert, evoking the Cuban Missile Crisis and its significance for the development of satellite reconnaissance during the 1960s. The protagonist embodies a birds-eye view, exploring the blind spots and prejudices of such varying perspectives. Finally, the film concludes with a reenactment of a video shot by an American soldier in Afghanistan in a first-person perspective. The footage offers an immersive, bleak representation of 21st century warfare and its mediation.

WAR ZONE explore les tensions entre les technologies et leur héritage militaire. La majorité des ruptures technologiques profondes étant issues de la recherche militaire, leur diffusion dans le domaine public n`est-elle pas une propagation des valeurs idéologiques dans lesquelles elles ont été produites? "Il n’est pas superflu de rappeler [...] le lien originel entre technologies militaires et technologies du réseau (l’arpanet, ancêtre d’internet, a été développé par la DARPA, l’agence américaine chargée des projets en recherche avancée pour la Défense). [...] L’artiste reconstitue en vision subjective trois trajectoires de missiles dans le logiciel Google Earth, à partir des coordonnées réelles. Celle d’un missile V2, développé par les nazis, tiré de la Hollande vers l’Angleterre en 1945 (dont l’impact est encore visible dans les images satellites actuelles), un Scud tiré du Koweït vers l’Arabie Saoudite pendant la guerre du golfe et, enfin, un missile air sol tiré d’Israël vers Gaza en 2014. «C’est grâce à la fusée V2 équipée d’une caméra qu’on a pu voir la première image de la Terre vue de l’espace et l’incurvation de la planète». Le résultat est hypnotique, générant un sentiment mitigé de fascination et d’effroi. En train de chevaucher notre missile à la manière d’un Docteur Folamour, on observe pensif l’évolution de ces instruments de mort, de la précision médiocre des V2 aux frappes chirurgicales d’Israël, la nation qui compte le plus grand nombre de start-up, notamment dans la cyberdéfense, et où l’armée est le principal creuset de l’innovation." Marie Lechner

The Toxic Camera is a new short film for cinematic screening by British artists Jane and Louise Wilson, former Turner Prize nominees. The film reflects on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, inspired by the film Chernobyl: A Chronicle of Difficult Weeks made by Soviet filmmaker Vladimir Shevchenko in the days immediately following the accident. On processing his film, Shevchenko noticed sections of it were heavily pockmarked and affected by static interference, coinciding with the sound of his Geiger counter measuring radiation, and realised that radiation was effectively ‘visible’ on the film material itself. The Wilson’s film explores interconnecting stories from the interviews conducted with Chernobyl ‘veterans’ and with Shevchenko’s film crew, 25 years after the incident. The narrative includes the story of the camera that Shevchenko used which became highly radioactive that it was subsequently buried on the outskirts of kiev. The film is a reflection on the material nature of the film and considers the human impact of disasters such as Chernobyl.

An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually we realise that the city is imaginary. His account is an attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape. This, in a nutshell, is the story of Thing. Screened at a very large scale, Thing, is an architectural universe that ceaselessly reveals its own virtuality for it exists only as a nebula of points wherein the camera, or actually, the point of view, wanders. Indeed, the technology used in Thing does not allow talking about a camera since it is made of 3D scans of urban spaces. Instead, we could talk about a point of view, a gaze, or even a body (that wanders). Thereby, a tension is generated between the mechanical register of space and its embodied perception. A tension or overlap between two sensing interfaces: the scanner and the body, without any need to determine whether there is a desire to reproduce the mode of sensing of the latter through the technology of the former. Unlike other works in which the animation is for the artist an occasion to create spaces without memory (precisely because animation does not capture anything), in Thing, the virtual universe does have a memory; the scanner does capture. The same memory that a body has or that is required in the learning of perception. Calling it Thing is a resistance to provide connotation beyond the signalling of a paradoxical –for it is virtual– materiality. Notwithstanding the nuances between authors and periods, the word "thing" in philosophical and psychoanalytic traditions has often been used to refer to the inaccessible, a stronghold of inexplicable emptiness on which meaning is built. Thing, is a film that is built from a text that progressively describes, creates, or builds a space. The dot and the word become thereby, parallel compositional elements. (Anna Manubens)

First Fugue is an experiment to find a way of putting documentary images together as if in a fugue like state. A fugue is a dissociative disorder like amnesia, although it also compels the subject to drift both in space and in identity. A fugue is caused by extremely traumatic events.

Prima Vita is part of a series about mechanized landscapes. A short piece recorded in Barcelona´s container terminal from Montjuïc, a nearby hill overlooking the city. Huge tired cranes roll along aisles made of thousands of containers stacked on top of each other in an otherwise rigid matrix that provides for efficient storage and transport between large ships and trucks. The cranes are operated by a single driver assisted by computers in a carefully choreographed dance thru the meadows of invisible goods. Landscape is a machine part of larger machines, where humans, surface rolling vehicles and ships are gears in permanent interaction.
1974, photographer and architect. Graduated from the PUCMM in Santiago, Dominican Republic. I´m a founding member of Grupo Fotográfico de Santiago since 1996, a group of photographers from different backgrounds committed with promoting photography through exhibitions, lectures and workshops. I moved on to study architecture and urbanism at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam in 2000 focusing on recent urban transformations through the landscapes of Rotterdam and Zuid Holland and eventually went on to work for the photographer Francesco Jodice and Multiplicity, in projects like Secret Traces and Uncertain States of Europe at the Triennale di Milano. Among other distinctions is the Wilfredo García international photography prize, first prize at the 2005 Rotterdam Architecture Biennale (Al_Caribe with Supersudaca) and being selected for the XXIV Bienal Eduardo León Jimenes. I`ve taught at several institutions in Latin America and Europe while working in collaborative projects and workshops as an independent architect and visual artist in projects on architecture, landscape and photography.
‘Timelessness’ is the key of this video. The quality is not referring to ignore time rather; it’s capacity to ignore the influence of Time-a vital ruler of our life. Every era carries thousands of master pieces. With the passage of time, number of pieces of a particular era reduces for less occupancy to the people of the following era. It’s because the time changes reality. What can travel more must less influenced by time. From the first human to now, what is still constant? –Human body and Nature. The video is about relationship of body with nature. Figure used in the video represents only body; actions are natural. The actions of figures are in playing mode, the purpose is absent but the pleasure is inevitable. The purposeless is meaningless- The truth that we are here and will not be. The audio exactly carries the screaming of the truth of that we are passing. The video with creates insecurity as it demolishes meaning of security. A very melancholic feeling of death but hints how to face? And finally how it brings color to life? The ending commentary- ‘Body is for usage…..’-depicts how the video is “Optimistic about nothing”.

Sequenza is an experimental film project by Manon de Boer and George van Dam based on the composition Sequenza VIII for solo violin by Luciano Berio . From a long history of cooperation - to include the soundtrack of Manon de Boer's film trilogy Sylvia Kristel - Paris (2003), Resonating Surfaces (2005) and Think about Wood, Think about Metal (2011) and her portrait of George van Dam in Presto, Perfect Sound (2006) - came the desire to work together to make a movie based on Sequenza VIII . This piece is for its crystalline structure one of the most beloved compositions by George van Dam . Together with Manon de Boer, he wants to explore how rhythm and structure of this composition can be articulated in conjunction with moving images to penetrate. So even deeper into the composition Manon de Boer is fascinated by the image of the intimate contact of the chin, the ears, the face of the violinist with the violin, which extends in the movement of his arms and hands to the body and space, the instrument - body of the violin as a material, physical transition between two abstract elusive poles : that of the mental construction of the composition and experience of its sounds in space. Van Dam and de Boer have developed the following idea from these different interests. In several recordings of Dam filmed (and sound is recorded) when he performs Sequenza VIII . Emphasizing first half total, the body and the intimacy with the instrument. Then abstract details filmed, like his hands, his ear, details of the violin, strings and the like. In the editing is from the portrait / body of the violinist a more fragmented, abstract image created a physical, gives spatial experience in the tension between the music and the image rhythm. If the body and the violin in abstract details and solve dancing away in the (sound) space.

Le défi que se/nous propose Jean-Marie Straub est bien d'ordre cinématographique. Tous ses films ont toujours été constitués de blocs. Et ces blocs qui s'entrechoquent, blocs denses de textes, de paysages, de visages, ont toujours eu pour nécessité de donner à voir à travers ces chocs l'invisible des sentiments et du politique. Mélangeant les blocs de temps (40 ans séparent les différents extraits), les blocs de textes (Malraux, Fortini, Vittorini, Holderlin) et les blocs de langues (français, italien, allemand), pour que de ce fracas émerge l'histoire du monde, oui l'Histoire, et du même mouvement l'espoir politique de son dépassement. La première chose que nous dit Kommunisten, c’est que Straub pense ici son cinéma comme un fonds d’archives personnel dans lequel puiser, si bien que ce film devient une leçon où les fragments des films passés – plus un « nouveau », en ouverture, inspiré de Malraux, avec la voix de Straub lui-même (hors champ) qui interroge des communistes en prison – peuvent être utilisés comme objets d’étude. Kommunisten, c’est Straub et c’est Danièle Huillet, mais c’est surtout leur cinéma – qui a traversé le XXe siècle, ses conflits et ses utopies impossibles, en cherchant dans le pli des mots et des images qui les tissent ce qui est resté suspendu, caché, enfoui avec les oublis imposés par ceux qui écrivent et déterminent l’Histoire. Chaque « bout » de film nous emmène en terrain découvert, dans un passé qui paraît actuel, parce que ces questions sont restées sans réponse – si ce n’est avec une image, qui continue à les poser sans relâche, avec détermination. (Cristina Piccino, Il Manifesto, 19 août 2014)
An Ealing Trilogy is a response to selected portraits from the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Commissioned by the gallery, the film re-invents the lives of inspirational people who have links to Ealing, West London including Dusty Springfield, Charlie Chaplin and Freddie Mercury. Tableaux imagery is combined with an abstract soundscape to create a captivating slow motion film portrait of people and places from a west London borough.

The short film UNCERTAINTY is like Ouroboros, has no beginning and no end. The important aspect of the plot is constant change of the perspective between the observer and the observed person. This endless inversion and slow close-ups create the atmosphere of uncanny epidemic. Uncertainty is the effect of being infected by a microbe which forced a victim to intense observation of the surrounding world. The final aim is to not get concentrated on any specific element or quality but to exceed the cognitive habits. The suspended certainty of the existence forces all observers to look through the images of so-called reality. Their behavior may look absurdly, although it’s based on the promise given by our culture: there must be something beyond the visible world.

Ella Raidel’s video Play Life Serie exposes its own methods right from the start. We see film shoots and film sites where Chinese soap operas are produced. As the camera pans to film teams and cameramen, the fictional content of the rehearsed scenes is interrupted and revealed as the process of making-of. At the same time, through editing, Raidel replays particular movements, handholds, and gestures of the characters, thus intensifying their serial level. The repetitions make clear the extent to which sword fights, wine, love, and revolt are part of a medially represented repertoire of gestures. Ella Raidel’s work deals ironically with the Chinese soap opera as fake-factory of collective desires, which in the interplay of fiction and making-of, forces its way through reality, scrutinizing it—as site of image making and image controlling.

The piece "Ocean" was originally a conceptually designed, visual statement for a song by dutch musician, Olivier Heim. Looking for a connection between lyrics and aesthetics, we found main inspiration in the masterpiece by Alain Resnains "Last year in Marienbad". As we didn't want to copy and repeat exactly the same sequences of shots, we were just searching for an universal code, which made that kind of poetics legendary and original. The most important became, how to transfer contemporary sound and looks (meaning ; cinematography, style) into something classic and the other way round. What makes the classics attractive? We consider elegance in filmmaking as our motto and something that should be popular again.

Public and private spaces make people develop political and social questions reaching beyond localities, widening questions about their role in the formation of political subjectivity. "Everywhere´s local" intends to examine how conventions about mobility as counter resistance affects identities of individuals and small communities as well as in working places and private locations; how these conventions speak about subjectivity ; their way of quest political and social visibility, and whether actions of reciprocity might be the source of mutual support allowing civilians to activate endurance in the development of social structures. The piece investigates the role of the aesthetic vision within the process of objectification, juxtaposing documents of daily practices where individual actions become the apparatus that institutions use to master control and by doing so reducing civilians as objects. Spaces create distinctive features for subjectivity to be activated where meanings of defiance alongside civil resistance are deepened inside description of subjectivity within differentiation of forms. Where actions are endorsed by connotation and not by their visible value. Interpretation of actions are investigated as potential fields, where their manifestations compared coloured smokes, aim to empower people visibility and at the same time longing to dismiss a system.

Washingtonia starts when the giraffes heart can no longer be heard. Washingtonia is an alternative name for Athens, a place where people, like animals, fall into summertime sadness because of the heat. Washingtonia is the only palm tree which heart is not devoured by the red beetle. Because its heart is small and dry and no one likes small and dry hearts.
