"Annika Larsson - Fear of Flying"

Conceived as a series of experiments taking place in four individual homes, "Fear of Flying" explores virtual reality and its relationship to the control and rebellion of moving bodies and spirits.

Exhibition from February 27 to April 19, 2020
Wednesday – Sunday / 12:00 – 18:00
Closed on Monday and Tuesday

Working closely with four circles of family and friends, the film explores the blurred boundaries and paradoxical feelings of being simultaneously in and out of control, here and there, moved and in motion - states that are triggered by the complex system of interactions that take place between technology and our bodies, our nervous systems and our brains.

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.
