Antoni muntadas
In Girum Revisited
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 14:26 | Italie | 2016


Barcelona-born, but a longtime New Yorker, Antoni Muntadas figures among a first generation of artists investigating the social and political significance of information and broadcast media. This thirty-year retrospective, first seen at the Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo, includes several videos from the pre’fiber optic era, such as Video Is Television’, 1989, which magnifies and distorts images from a host of appropriated sources, including several Hollywood films (Poltergeist, Network). Backed by a plunking score, the nearly indecipherable TV images are overlaid with captions such as CONTEXT and FRAGMENT: blunt reminders of mass media’s partiality and its constitutive power. An even earlier interactive installation, On Subjectivity, 1978, invites visitors to comment on media images divorced from their original context and therefore’a critical ‘therefore’ for the artist’shorn of their original meaning.

Rudolf herz
Szeemann and Lenin Crossing the Alps
Documentaire | hdv | couleur | 18:46 | Allemagne | 2019

An unusual cooperative project between curator and artist was set in motion by Harald Szeemann and Rudolf Herz in the summer of 2003. Their ultimate goal was to produce a film. Now – more than ten years after Szeemann's death – the film is ready to be shown. Harald Szeemann had invited Rudolf Herz to present the project “Prologo sul Lago Maggiore” at the exhibition “G 2003. Mostra internazionale d'Arte all'aperto” in Ascona, Switzerland: a mobile monument consisting of granite busts from the dismantled Lenin monument in Dresden (in former East Germany), which is tied down on a semitrailer. It was a preliminary project for the “Lenin on Tour,” a Europe-wide monument touring event Herz staged the following year under the motto “I show Lenin to my contemporaries. And the 21st century to Lenin. Who will explain it to him?” In turn, Rudolf Herz suggested to present a performance together: He invited Harald Szeemann to join him in the driver's cabin on the long “Prologo” trip and express his thoughts on Lenin. Both Szeemann's discourse on the topic and the journey across the Alps were filmed. The videotapes were long lost and only recently rediscovered. The concept of the film is an interweaving of the surreal and yet very real slow-moving Alpine crossing of the huge vagabonding monument and Szeemann's contemplations on whether or not Lenin had ever been on Monte Verità, the mythenshrouded hill, the center for society's dropouts, back-to-nature lifestyle reformers and Anarchists at the Lago Maggiore around 1900. Szeemann, whose grandfather had been Lenin’s barber in Bern, talks about today at the beginning of the new millennium: about art and politics, about the world situation after the Fall of the Berlin Wall and about the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. This was one of the last lengthy talks Szeemann delivered that was recorded before his death in February 2005. Harald Szeemann (1933–2005) was a Swiss curator, artist, and art historian. Having curated more than 200 exhibitions many of which have been characterized as groundbreaking, such as Live In Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (1969), Happening and Fluxus (1970), Documenta 5 (1972). Szeemann is said to have helped redefine the role of an art curator.


Rudolf Herz (born 1954) is a German sculptor and media artist living in Munich. He was awarded several art prices and grants including the renowned Villa Massimo scholarship in Rome in 1995. Herz’ artistic interest focuses on highly sensitve historical topics and their relation to the present time. In 1997 he was a laureate in the competition for the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" (1997). Herz is most renowned for his installation “Zugzwang” which was internationally exhibited, including at The Jewish Museum, New York in 2002. One of his most recent works is a radio play (“Desperados or Hitler goes tot he movies“) about a lost anti-revolutionary film from 1919 which Herz could produce with the national broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk.

Nein weil wir
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 18:11 | Allemagne | 2019

La conscience collective s'est forgée à travers les siècles, mais le navivre de la société vogue à toute allure sur les mers de la mondialisation. Des voix parfois très anciennes nous mettent en garde sur les risques qu'encourent les hommes, livrés à la démesure. Le film fait entendre des fragments de ces discours, qui de génération en génération, ont porté la ferveur et l’espérance citoyenne, devant une salle vide, symbole de notre désertion devant les réalités, signe de notre capitulation progressive, expression de notre renoncement. Dehors, il pleut de plus en plus et un vent terrible se lève. Le changement climatique est à l'horizon... Augmentez la vitesse!

Ariane Loze, Belgique 1988. Vit et travaille à Bruxelles, Belgique Ariane Loze étudie le développement d’une narration à partir d’images apparemment sans rapport. Dans cette série de vidéos, elle joue tous les rôles : elle est tour à tour actrice, réalisatrice et camera woman. Par le montage, ces images mettent en relation deux (ou plusieurs) personnages et l’architecture. Les videos d’Ariane Loze proposent au spectateur de prendre part à la création de la narration grâce aux principes du montage cinématographique: le champ / contre-champ, la continuité de mouvement, et la suggestion d’une narration psychologique. Le tournage de ces vidéos a été rendu public devenant donc une performance. Ariane Loze a étudié la mise-en-scène au RITCS de Bruxelles et a participé à a.pass (Advanced Performance And Scenography Studies) à Bruxelles. Elle était résidente au HISK (Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts) à Gand en 2016-17.

Johan grimonprez
Three Thoughts on Terror
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 5:0 | Belgique | 2018

In Three Thoughts on Terror, investigative journalists Robert Fisk, Jeremy Scahill and Vijay Prashad approach the concept of terror from their respective angles. Fisk dismantles terror as a term that is rendered meaningless to alienate political movement from its origins: justice and injustice. Scahill points out that terror is a relative term, as its interpretation depends on which side of the bombing you’re on. Using the absurd example of the ‘The Hague Invasion Act’, he shows how the US sticks its thumb in the eye of international law: “Some republicans in the US Congress were discussing putting forward legislation that they referred to as “The Hague Invasion Act”, the idea that if US personnel were ever to be brought to The Hague on war crimes charges, the US could deploy military forces to The Hague to snatch those personnel and liberate them from the evil clutches of international law.” Vijay Prashad takes rather a philosophical approach, reciting Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz: “what you see around you, leaves you with no obligation but to feel something. And if that feeling cannot be controlled, you have to do something about it. You can’t refuse this world.”


Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities. Grimonprez’s curatorial projects have been exhibited at museums worldwide, including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; and MoMA. His works are in the collections of Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa; and Tate Modern, London. His feature films include dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997, in collaboration with novelist Don DeLillo) and Double Take (2009, in collaboration with writer Tom McCarthy) and Shadow World (2016, in combination with journalist Andrew Feinstein). Traveling the main festival circuit from the Berlinale, Tribeca to Sundance, they garnered several Best Director awards, the 2005 ZKM International Media Award, a Spirit Award and the 2009 Black Pearl Award at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, and were also acquired by NBC Universal, ARTE, and BBC/FILM 4. He published several books, including Inflight (2000), Looking for Alfred (2007) and a reader titled It’s a Poor Sort of Memory that Only Works Backwards (2011) with contributions by Jodi Dean, Thomas Elsaesser, Tom McCarthy, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Slavoj Žižek. He lectured widely, among others at the University de Saint-Denis (Paris 8), Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics; Tate Modern; MoMA (New York); Columbia University; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); the Parliament of Bodies of Documenta 14, and he participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, and is now on a research grant at HOGENT/KASK , Ghent. His recent film project (with investigative journalist Andrew Feinstein), Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, was awarded a production grant from the Sundance Institute, premiered at the 2016 Tribeca IFF (New York). It went on to win the Best Documentary Feature Award at the 2016 Edinburgh International Film Festival, and premiered its US broadcast on Independent Lens on PBS in 2017. Currently Grimonprez is developing a feature film based on David van Reybrouck’s play The Soul of the White Ant. With Belgian actor Josse de Pauw in the lead, and also featuring Prime-Minister Patrice Lumumba, shuttle diplomat Dag Hammarskjold and Jazz Ambassadors Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie & Duke Ellington, in a harrowing tale of cold war intrigue and termite poop, that is about to run off-script. His artwork is represented by the Sean Kelly Gallery (New York), and gallerie kamel mennour (Paris). See johangrimonprez.be for more info.

Panel discussion 1/3

The Rencontres Internationales invites artists, researchers, directors of art centres and museums to share their experience and their thoughts on the changes underway and to come in their fields, and on the issues at stake.
Each panel discussion will be an opportunity to consider the experiences and reflections related to each participant's professional practices from a critical perspective. It will be a question of comings and goings between recent or ongoing projects, and of prospective views related to production, artist accompaniment, presentation of works and exhibitions.
By 2050, we should be out of the present era and, perhaps, out of its foretold perils. What changes and consequences should this mean in the field of activity of each participant?
Discussions will be based on the experience and point of view of each speaker, with concrete examples, leaving an important place for interaction and exchange with the public.

Intervenants :

Călin Dan - Director, MNAC National Museum of Contemporary Art, Romania
Vincent Gonzalvez (to be confirmed) - Head of Residencies, Cité internationale des arts, France
Emília Tavares - Curator, Museu Do Chiado Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporanea, Portugal

Quello che verrà è solo una promessa
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 22:0 | Italie | 2019

In the course of a long, slow take over Funafuti, both drought and floods appear in a constant uninterrupted rhythm. The state of flux between both type of events is reflected in the places and actions of the inhabitants making the island's extremes seem familiar: the air is riven with anticipation and surprise. The island of Funafuti, in the archipelago of Tuvalu, for some years now has become the stage for a unique phenomenon. Due to the unnatural warming of the sea, saltwater seeps into the subsoil bubbling up through the porous terrain provoking floods which put the future of life on this island at risk.

Christian barani
Lac Assal
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 15:12 | Djibouti | 2019

Dans la vallée du rift de Djibouti, dans le noir des roches volcaniques, des hommes attendent. Dans ce désert, quelques années auparavant, la production du sel organisait la vie. Depuis la concurrence a vaincu. Au bord du lac Assal, des résistants partent à la recherche de concrétions de sel en espérant les vendre aux quelques touristes qui viendraient contempler le bleu du lac.

Christian Barani est né en 1959, vit à Paris. Il construit une pratique qui associe le champ du documentaire à celui des Arts Visuels. Sa recherche se fonde sur un dispositif performatif qui engage un corps/caméra marchant dans l’espace. Il définit une règle du jeu qui compose avec le hasard et l’improvisation et génère des images sans à priori. Il filme là où les violences politiques et sociales oppressent, dressant un portrait au fil des temps des vaincus.

Laura kraning, Blue Kraning
Las Breas
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 12:20 | USA | 2019

LAS BREAS is an observational portrait of three tar pits, of which there are only six in the entire world. Situated in three distinct landscapes in Southern California – urban Los Angeles, the oil fields of the San Joaquin Valley, and Carpinteria Beach, LAS BREAS investigates the spaces between archiving the pre-historic and the contemporary industrial landscape. While skeletons of extinct megafauna and vintage animatronic beasts are on display in the heart of Hollywood, the sticky remains of ancient microscopic organisms seep to the surface of both land and sea. Of the earth, yet primordial and impenetrable, the bubbling tar that rises from the depths speaks of past extinction and human exploitation of the earth’s limited resources.


Laura Kraning’s moving image work has screened widely at international film festivals, museums, and galleries, such as the New York Film Festival’s Views from the Avant-Garde and Projections, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Edinburgh Film Festival, London Film Festival, Visions du Réel, MoMA’s Doc Fortnight, Art Toronto, Centre Pompidou, National Gallery of Art, and REDCAT Theater, among others. Her work has received awards at the 2010, 2015, and 2016 Ann Arbor Film Festival, 2016 Athens International Film Festival, and the 2018 Rencontres Internationales Sciences & Cinémas Film Festival. Blue Kraning’s documentary and narrative films have screened internationally at festivals and venues such as International Film Festival Rotterdam, Helsinki International Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, Image Forum Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Denver Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Los Angeles Filmforum, and the Walker Art Center. He has won numerous awards such as the IFP/Blockbuster Film Development Fund, The Morrow-Hues Screenwriting Award (finalist) and his television writing has garnered two Emmy Awards.

Andrés davila
Sour Lake
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 14:40 | Colombie | 2019

Inspiré du nom donné par la Texaco à un petit village d’Amazonie, Sour Lake explore les confluences, rencontres et déplacements géographiques, sociaux et imaginaires qui se sont noués depuis le XVIe siècle entre la forêt équatorienne et les Andes colombiennes.

Andrés Dávila est un réalisateur colombien. Il a obtenu en 2013 un master en cinéma et études audiovisuelles à l’Université Sorbonne Nouvelle. Il vit actuellement en Equateur.

Rosa barba
Aggregate States of Matters
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 21:22 | 0 | 2019

L’état des lieux met en évidence la relation ambiguë entre l’homme et la nature. Pour son nouveau film en 35 mm tourné au Pérou, Rosa Barba a travaillé avec des communautés qui sont touchées par la fonte d’un glacier et les temps géologiques qui sont mis à nu. Barba montre la lente disparition du glacier et la perception de ce fait au sein de la population Quechua des Andes. Tout en explorant les différents mythes locaux, elle souligne la possibilité de traduire les connaissances anciennes dans le temps présent.

Rosa Barba est née en 1972 en Italie, vit et travaille à Berlin. Elle a fait ses études à l'Académie des arts et médias de Cologne et à la Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten à Amsterdam. Le travail de Barba est représenté dans de nombreuses collections internationales telles que la Collezione MAXXI Arte à Rome en Italie, la Collezione FRAC Piemonte à Vercelli en Italie, le Hamburger Bahnhof à Berlin, la Collection Lemaître à Londres, le musée d'art moderne Louisiana à Humlebæk au Danemark, le Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto à Rovereto, le Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía à Madrid, la Kunsthaus à Zurich, le MACBA à Barcelone, le Mambo à Bologne, le Sammlung zeitgenössischer Kunst der Bundesrepublik Deutschland en Allemagne, et Jumex à Mexico. Elle a participé à des expositions collectives, notamment au MASS MoCA aux États-Unis, à l'Akademie der Künste à Berlin, au Kunstmuseum du Liechtenstein à Vaduz, à la Cinémathèque Française à Paris, au WIELS à Bruxelles, au Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia à Madrid, au Swiss Institute à New York, à la 8e Biennale d'art contemporain de Berlin, à la Triennale internationale en arts des nouveaux médias 2014 à Pékin en Chine, à la 19e Biennale de Sidney, à la Biennale internationale d'art contemporain de Carthagène en Colombie, à la Biennale 2010 de Liverpool, aux 52e et 53e Biennales de Venise, à la 2e Biennale d'art contemporain de Thessalonique et à la Biennale de l'image en mouvement à Genève.

In October each year, Munich hosts the UNDERDOX festival, which systematically explores an unknown land of art: hybrid and experimental forms of cinema in the category of feature films, video films and documentaries. The festival, founded in 2006 by film critic Dubja Bialas and cinema operator Bernd Brehmer, is one of the first to focus on films on the borderline between documentary, feature and experimental film. Despite or precisely because of its "independent" character, this "low-budget" family festival enjoys an international reputation. The aim of this festival is to create a platform for films that are underrepresented outside the market mechanisms, where the films enter into an internal dialogue. The interdependence of fiction, documentation, experimentation and art is the common feature of the films selected by UNDERDOX. All these productions seek to experiment the "film" in a pleasant and aesthetic way on the ground of reality, where reality is enriched by the imaginary and distinguished by fiction.

From the very beginning, video art from the Munich-Upper Bavaria district has also been part of the program. Since 2014 it has been represented in the biannual exhibition VIDEODOX, which is organised in cooperation with the Berufsverband Bildender Künstler München und Oberbayern (Association of Visual Artists of Upper Bavaria). On this occasion, an incentive prize is awarded to outstanding artists.

The festival is supported by the Cultural Department of the Bavarian capital and is a member of the association Filmstadt München e.V. as well as the working group for film festivals in Germany. Its partners are the Viennale (Vienna) and FID Marseille.

"Peut-on encore vivre une expérience spirituelle dans ces nouveaux sanctuaires consuméristes ? Les spectateurs réussissent-ils à créer leur propre expérience subversive comme autant d'individus constituant une masse ?". Le film est un trip hallucine? au cœur d’une foule, d’une communaute? de corps soudés par leur amour de la musique, des corps qui dansent mais qui n’oublient jamais de ressentir.

Transformation Scenario
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 20:0 | Allemagne | 2018

In the background of blockbuster films, algorithms have been employed to replace extras in post-production. Since years we are used to scenes in which masses of automated characters fill the screen, animated by algorithms that let them interact, similar to computer games and agents in computational sociology. Such artificial masses are stepping in the foreground. Simulating life began in the movies and computer games, but is influencing many fields today. In architecture, city planning and traffic navigation as well as in predictions of markets and trade, virtual scenarios influence society and change the way we live. Transformation Scenario (2018) by Clemens von Wedemeyer creates a speculative narration on the impact of emulated group behaviour in society. It follows an idea that could be inspired by Jean Luc Godards film Le Gai Savoir: “To find the solution to a problem, be it a chemical or political problem, one has to dissolve it: dissolve hydrogen, dissolve the parliament. Therefore we will now dissolve images and sounds.“ The film is part of a long term project by the artist making reference to the work Mass and Power (1960) by Elias Canetti, shifting the view on imageries of society, crowd control and potentials of masses today. This is especially relevant in times of populism, when numbers are used to construct power, and demonstrations and mass events form moments of resistance.


Clemens von Wedemeyer, born in 1974 in Göttingen, Germany, currently lives and works in Berlin and holds a professorship for media art at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. The artist and filmmaker participated in group shows such as the 1st Moscow Biennale (2005), the 4th Berlin Biennale (2006), Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2007, the 16th Biennale of Sydney (2008), and dOCUMENTA (13) (2012). He had solo shows among others at MoMA PS1, New York, ARGOS Centre for Art and Media, Brussels, the Barbican Art Centre, London, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and Hamburger Kunsthalle. His works can be found in major collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Tate Modern, London.

Under The Skin
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 16:40 | Royaume-Uni | 2019

Zooming into two books containing mug shots from around 1880–1935, Under the Skin, draws lines from historical events to contemporary developments of control and surveillance. While describing what she sees in the books, the narrator intertwines subject areas like; how time changes perspectives on historical events, the role of archives as foundations for power and control, the possible brutality of bureaucracy, the current state of facial recognition and personal experience with the law enforcement. Under the Skin questions given structures of power and asks how we can take back the sovereignty of information.

Less is More or
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 11:33 | Canada | 2018

La vidéo Less is More or documente l’intervention in situ réalisée à l’intérieur du Toronto Dominion Centre, complexe architectural conçu à l’origine par Mies van der Rohe. Revisitant l’aphorisme de l’architecte, ce projet procédait par une activation des lumières des bureaux à l’intérieur des édifices. Le tournage aérien, construit en deux plans séquences, joue sur le caractère hypnotique des images afin d’interroger les codes spectaculaires de l’industrie cinématographique. Depuis 2010, Aude Moreau développe un vaste programme de recherche qui part de l’hypothèse que si le rétrécissement de l’espace public passe par l’utilisation du vocabulaire économique pour décrire nos réalités quotidiennes, alors, la résurgence du politique passe par l’infiltration sémantique de l’architecture qui abrite cette construction du langage. Ce cycle de travail a mené à l’élaboration de quatre projets d’intervention in situ qui ont en commun d’agir à l’intérieur de l’architecture corporative du gratte-ciel, sur la lumière qu’elle émet dans la ville et d’investir la réalité géographique de l’activité économique et financière où circulent les flux déréalisés et dématérialisés de la production. Les projets d’intervention in situ Sortir, La ligne bleue, THE END in the background of Hollywood et Less is More or, sont autant de signes lumineux qui appellent à une reterritorialisation du politique dans la ville organisée comme spectacle.

Depuis les années 2000, Aude Moreau développe un corpus d’œuvres combinant sa double formation en scénographie et en arts visuels. Détentrice d’une licence en arts plastiques de l’Université Paris VIII, elle a complété une maîtrise en arts visuels et médiatiques de l’Université du Québec à Montréal en 2010. Son travail récent a été présenté à la galerie de l’UQAM, Montréal, Canada ; à la galerie The Power Plant, Toronto, Canada ; au Casino Luxembourg - Forum d’art contemporain, Luxembourg ; au Centre culturel canadien, Paris, France ; à Anthology Film Archives, New York, États-Unis ; au RISD Museum, Rhode Island International Film Festival, Providence, Etats-Unis; au Fresnoy, studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing, France. Ses oeuvres font notamment partie des collections du Centre canadien d’architecture, du Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, du Musée d’art moderne du Luxembourg (MUDAM), et de la Banque d’art du Conseil des arts du Canada. Elle est récipiendaire du prix Louis Comtois de la Ville de Montréal, 2016, de la Bourse Claudine et Stephen Bronfman et du prix Powerhouse, 2011. Des comptes rendus critiques sur sa pratique ont été publiés dans les revues Esse, Espace et Art Le Sabord. Aude Moreau vit et travaille à Montréal.

New Sidon Sun
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 4:43 | Liban | 2018

In 1978, the Saudi-Lebanese contractor Rafiq Hariri who made his wealth at the service of the Saudi royal family after the 1970’s global oil crisis, returned to Lebanon at the beginning of the civil war to deploy, in the name of reconstruction, one of many transnational developments in the town of Kfar Falous. Petrodollar recycling is the allocation of incredible funds to the benefit of disputed or untimely developments. “New Sidon Sun” is a video installation that tries to interrogate this model of failed modernity by surveying absence in the the Kfar Falous Science Complex as a petrodollar spill.


Maxime Hourani (Beirut, 1982) is an artist and architect who works with time-based media. He explores in his work the poetics and politics of land transformation while locating affective encounters between the history of nature and the nature of history.

Brief Immersion into History
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 0:48 | Italie | 2016

Power, Decisions, History, Economy. In the Bank of Naples Foundation, the two managers perform in its historical archive. The archive contains bank documents dating back from 1500, coming from Italy and Europe. Human stillness vs. ancient cheques stillness.


Giulia Giannola is an Italian artist born in 1985, in Naples. After finishing her Bachelor degree in Venice at the IUAV University, she moves to Berlin where she graduated as Meisterschülerin in Installation and Multimedia at the Universität der Künste (UdK), with Prof. Christiane Möbus and was guest student in artist Candice Breitz class at HBK Braunschweig. Her work draws inspiration from the observation of public/collective or personal life situations, in which time factors such as duration and rhythm, are called into question, twisted and transformed, suggesting alternate realities. She produces staged situations, performances, interventions in public space, and videos. She received the Elsa-Neumann-Stipendium des Landes Berlin in 2014. Her works have been shown in “Meridian|Urban, Curatorial projects on health”, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Ikono on Air Festival, Collegium Hungaricum, Berlin; Meisterschülerpreis des Präsidenten der UdK Berlin, Georg Kolbe Museum, Berlin, Germany; Italy in a Frame,Triennale di Milano, Milan; Shiryaevo Biennial,Regional Museum of Samara, Russia; Phaenomenale 2010, Science and art festival, Kunstverein Wolfsburg; HDLU, Zagreb; .HBC gallery, Berlin; Organhaus international video art festival, Chongqing, China; Biennial of young artists the Mediterranean, Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan; Avi Festival,Israeli Cinema Museum, Jerusalem; Public Space_s, Athens, Greece; Digital Marrakech, Marrakech, Morocco.

Performance multimédia | 0 | | 20:0 | 0 | 2020

Paranon est constitué de deux compositions parallèles en contrepoint, l'une visuelle et l'autre sonore, fondées sur les propriétés des ondes sinusoïdales. Les générateurs d'ondes sinusoïdales programmés qu'utilise Zeno van den Broek permettent de générer des interférences, de décaler les phases et d'alterner les fréquences avec une grande précision. L'écriture en contrepoint crée une tension et des résultats inattendus entre l'onde sinusoïdale initiale et les répétitions qui suivent. Les deux compositions parallèles introduisent à une beauté du son pur et explorent la richesse des collisions d'ondes sonores, créant des événements visuels et sonores inouis.

Zeno van den Broek est compositeur et artiste, né aux Pays-Bas et basé à Copenhague. Il travaille de manière multisensorielle pour rechercher et interroger des notions physiques, sociales et acoustiques. Il utilise des moyens audiovisuels pour créer des œuvres spécifiques à un lieu et à un concept. Cette méthode transdisciplinaire a une base conceptuelle solide, issue d'une formation en architecture, qui permet à Zeno de comprendre et de révéler la richesse et la complexité de la perception spatiale, viscérale et physique. Il travaille avec un langage artistique caractéristique fondé sur des éléments minimalistes et fondamentaux tels que les sinusoïdes, les lignes, le bruit et les grilles. Il travaille avec des instituts de recherche tels que la Fondation Gaudeamus, la LIMA et la Old Church d'Amsterdam. Son travail est présenté à l'international dans des lieux et des festivals tels que le Festival international du film de Rotterdam, Sonic Acts, les Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin. Sa musique est distribuée par des labels tels que Moving Furniture Records, Unsounds et The Tapeworm.
