Soren Thilo Funder’s works are carefully crafted cinematic mash-ups of diverse cultural fields and social histories. They serve as formal investigations into the power relations of modern day society and the truisms of written and unwritten history. Proposing new connections between historical, cultural and political matter, they open up new potential spaces ? third places ? for political contemplation and counter-memory.

What role can culture play, when dead bodies are not burried after death, but being used for other purposes “Snow White” examines this question, using stalinist Mausoleums, preparated animals in Natural History Museums and relics in churches. What form of story telling is being used to hide actions and translate them?

Thadeusz Tischbein is a Germany-based video artist. He studied between 2008 and 2016 in Leipzig, Braunschweig (Germany) and Bucharest (Romania) with Candice Breitz, Clemens von Wedemeyer and Günther Selichar. His 2017 video essay SNOW WHITE (2K Cinemascope, 19:40 min) is a journey to the dead bodies in mausoleums, churches and museums. In THE ATLAS OF THE WOUNDED BUILDINGS (HD, 12:56 min, 2016) he is trying to examine narrations written in bullets holes. INVENTORY (HD, 16:9, 5:49 min) from 2015 is talking about the strange living room of so called office plants.

Jakarta traffic moves with the harmonious chaos of complex self organising entities everywhere. Through contact printer matteing techniques this mass transport becomes denser and denser until only the fluid futility of motion/motionlessness remains. Jakarta traffic stands as proof of the paradox of motion.

Richard Tuohy (b. 1969, Melbourne, Aus.) began making works on super 8 in the late nineteen eighties. In 2006 he, along with his partner Dianna Barrie, launched nanolab, a super 8 film processing laboratory in Australia. The establishment of this lab afforded the opportunity to set up darkrooms and install 16mm film processing and most importantly printing and sound recording equipment. Since 2009 he has been an active and vocal member of the international artist run film lab scene. Tuohy`s own works are firmly in the `hand-made` film tradition. An advocate for the possibilities of hand made cinema, Tuohy has devoted much time and effort in sharing his knowledge through workshops and classes both in his native Australia and internationally. His films and film based performances have screened at venues including the Melbourne IFF, EMAF (Osnabruck), Rotterdam IFF, New York FF, Ann Arbor and Media City and he has repeatedly toured Europe, North America and Asia presenting solo programs of his work and conducting experimental film-making workshops. He is the instigator of the AFW magazine Film Is and, along with Dianna Barrie and Sue K, was also a co-founder of the AIEFF experimental film festival in Melbourne.

What Happens to the Mountain
Fiction expérimentale | hdcam | couleur | 12:9 | USA | 2016

“ What Happens to the Mountain ” draws upon literary sources, late night radio, and ancient legends to conjure a psycho-geographic experience in a sacred landscape. A long-distance driver, a drifter, journeys from a tenuous reality into a vision of the afterlife, called forth by the spirit of the mountain.

Christin Turner (1985, USA) is a filmmaker and artist based in Boulder, Colorado by way of Southern California. Her films navigate the psychological terrains of landscape, material, and image; they investigate the possibilities of cinema as a site for transcendence.

Impossible architecture, an ancient burial ground and a lure for psychotic janitors were the building blocks of Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In this story vignette, chaos animators Pink Twins add zero gravity and a rupture in space-time continuum to the mix and serve a taster of subtle cosmic horror.

Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha (b. 1978) and Vesa Vehviläinen (b. 1974), based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, their videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Live Pink Twins deliver improvised digital soundscapes, often combined with video screenings. Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals in all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.

A day during autumn, Krakow, Poland. I looked at the hedge and at one moment, suddenly, I felt the need to throw myself at him. It was a need dictated strictly by kinesthetic experience. A whim of immersion in the thicket that will absorb me into its lumps. Then it becomes a habit.

Vidéo | 0 | | 4:2 | Autriche | 0 | 1970

A short videotape showing a frontal view of VALIE EXPORT's semi-figure as she forms various signs by hand and lines them up in a row throughout the tape. It is a sign language using only the fingers and hands, a poem without words or movement of the lips. At the end, the following German text appears which – freely adapting the philosopher Martin Heidegger – suggests a possible theoretical frame of reference: “Ich sage die zeige mit den Zeichen der Sage frei nach Heidegger” (“I say the showing with the signs of the legend”).

In “Sehtext: Fingergedicht” (Visual Text: Finger Poem) VALIE EXPORT communicates with her fingers. Sign language, as an elision of word and gesture, is investigated in this performance-to-camera work. The artist writes: "The body as carrier of information, in order to convey both spiritual and physical contents, is the reflected image of the internal/psychological and of the external/institutional reality."

This 16mm film reflects EXPORT`s dialogue with the medium film: "Back then I was occupied with trying to find out how you can use this small machine to do things with various formal, artistic or performance-like sequences on celluloid: cross-fading, rewinding and starting over again, not having any clear pictures. In this project I was interested in moving towards the camera and moving away again."

Like in “Split Reality”, the personality conveyed by a medium in this performance tape appears to be schizophrenic. Two video cameras and a mixer make possible a closed-circuit action that demonstrates not only the differences in the way the viewers perceive a person who is physically present in the room and simultaneously electronically reproduced, but also how the image is manipulated by its electronic conveyance. The camera zooms in and out, subjecting the performer's monitor likeness to permanent alteration. Specific synthetic sounds are linked to the picture: optically close = loud sound and rapid tone repetition, optically remote = quiet sound and slow tone repetition. The work is arranged in 6 parts: 1. space position, 2. split images, 3. space position composition, 4. split image composition, 5. body, 6. body composition.

Vidéo | 0 | couleur | 5:48 | Autriche | 2010

This video was made for a commission EXPORT received from the Theater an der Wien opera house for an installation on the occasion of the Mozart Year 2010. It shows in short intervals various bars of music, behind each one changing number combinations - 13, 167, 123, 16, 4 etc. - and two dice that roll into the picture displaying various numbers of dots. EXPORT's hand can be seen now and then, reaching for the dice. The images are accompanied by melodies played on a soprano saxophone. The springboard for this video work is a manuscript attributed to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart titled "Anleitung zum Componieren von Walzern vermittels zweier Würfel" ("Instructions for Composing Waltzes Using Two Dice"), published posthumously in 1793. Mozart's interactive composition piece is based on a system for a musical dice game invented in the mid-18th century which is the oldest known method for combining numbers with the help of a random generator, in this case, dice. In this video, EXPORT summons connections to earlier photographic works and installations in which dice and randomness play a central role.

As usual, the film is “shown” in the dark. But the cinema has shrunk somewhat – only two hands fit inside it. To see (i.e. feel, touch) the film, the viewer (user) has to stretch his hands through the entrance to the cinema. At last, the curtain which formerly rose only for the eyes now rises for both hands. The tactile reception is the opposite of the deceit of voyeurism. For as long as the citizen is satisfied with the reproduced copy of sexual freedom, the state is spared the sexual revolution. “Tap and Touch Cinema” is an example of how re-interpretation can activate the public. (VALIE EXPORT) This outdoor action on Munich's Stachus square translates the concept of expanded cinema and the cinema's fairground roots into the “first immediate women’s film”, as the artist describes her “Tap and Touch Cinema”. “Public” accessibility – restricted to 30 seconds per person – is noisily proclaimed by Peter Weibel. A direct demonstration of cinema as a projection space for male fantasies, this still ironic transgression of the border between art and life is an early indication of VALIE EXPORT’s often risky, but always resolute, deployment of her own body in later works.

In this video poem VALIE EXPORT speaks to the screen; the body-language action involving her loud, sensual, breathy voice is the main event, while the semantic content as "love-poem" is deliberately more of an afterthought. The focus is instead on the moment of not saying something out loud, of pre-linguistic expression. Only when the viewer follows step-by-step the letters breathed onto the glass pane as well as the performer`s head movements does a sentence become decipherable, which says: "I love you".

In her first “film self-portrait”, VALIE EXPORT wears an attention-getting curly wig and caresses a woman´s breasts in slow motion, then lasciviously closes and opens her eyes. The carefully applied makeup and wig tell of disguise and acting, and are simultaneously beautiful and terribly stony like the anonymous woman´s head. The brevity and slow speed are reminiscent of Andy Warhol´s Screen Tests, in which every single one of the face´s movements become visible.

"Syntagma” is like a fixed gaze that someone exchanges with himself/herself as if he/she were two people’s eyes staring at oneself and the unyielding gaze of the camera. All that can be seen through these two sets of eyes is the staring act itself. Identity reflections, the mirror as something impenetrable, like an investigating veil. The more the mirror reflects, the more it moves toward forgetfulness as an impenetrable object, even if it imprints itself with images. (VALIE EXPORT)

Human behaviour in contrast to machines (animals) is influenced by events in the past, as far back as these experiences may lie. Therefore there exists a psychic paratime parallel to the objective time, where the prayers of anguish and guilt, the inability to win, deformations which rip open the skin, becoming aware of oneself, have their constant effects. I demonstrate something which represents past and present.

At the 2007 Venice Biennale, I did a 12-minute performance in the Arsenale that showed the vocal folds of my throat while I was speaking. It was called “the voice as performance, act and body”. After a camera was inserted through my nose, the image was shown on large monitors so that you could see my vocal folds in the process of speaking. It was my own text that I read in German, a poetic text about the origin of language. “What is the anatomy of language?” I asked. My answer was just as much a body performance as any of my earlier works. Whenever we think of the body as a vessel for artistic ideas, we somehow always focus on the surface of the body. But the truth is that there is no surface of the body independent of its interior. It’s obvious that the outside of the body is always connected to the inside, to thought processes and to an internal anatomy. (VALIE EXPORT)

This work documents a ritualistic performance concerned with Ansemia, or the inability to either express or understand gesture. Using symbolic materials - hot wax, a knife, a dead bird - as well as text, VALIE EXPORT investigates human expression, and how communication can fail. "I had used my mouth to take the knife from the podium, holding it in my mouth, (the knife is language, the naming of things, its separates the subject from the object) using it to cut."

The rebellious voice, the split voice. The voice is suture, the voice is seam, the voice is cut, the voice is tear, the voice is my identity, it is not body or spirit, it is not language or image, it is sign, it is a sign of the images, it is a sign of sensuality. It is a sign of symbols, it is boundary. It speaks the “Split Body”, it is hidden in the clothing of the body, it is always somewhere else. The breath of life is its source. (VALIE EXPORT: Segment from the spoken text)

The Shift Symm collection is a series of brutal, abstract audiovisual constructions. Raw, exposed electronic textures collide in oscillating patterns of drift. Van den Broek’s sculptural sonic architecture plays on rigorous shifts of compositional symmetry – with results that are both hypnotic and evocative. Shifting is a key principle in the work. Visual and sonic elements – beats, lines and blocks – perpetually breach the symmetry of their arrangements, switch to new paths and start new trajectories. In chains of transformations, order gives way to controlled entropy. Shift Symm is presented as a video triptych, a live a/v performance and a digital album

Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch-born, Copenhagen-based composer and artist. Van den Broek works in a multi-sensory way to research and express physical, social and acoustic notions. He utilizes immaterial, digital and temporal means to create site and concept specific works. This trans-disciplinary method has a strong conceptual foundation, originating from Zeno his background in architecture, which enables him to comprehend and reveal the richness and complexity of spatial, visceral and physical perception. Zeno van den Broek has been commissioned work by various esteemed institutes and festivals such as the Gaudeamus Foundation, SPOR Festival and the Old Church of Amsterdam. He has presented work at venues and festivals such as International Film Festival Rotterdam, Fiber at CTM Vorspiel, Click Festival and Gaudeamus Festival. His work has been presented by among others: LIMA, VPRO Vrije Geluiden, Sedition and TheBillboardCollective – Los Angeles.
