The Good Life
0 | dv | couleur | 16:0 | Belgique | 2009

In the background technicians are installing a prestigious exhibition,whilst a smartly dressed lady is guiding a group of people around a series of pristine white spaces, some of them filled with crates and wrapped-up paintings. Along the way she not only comments on the art but also reveals the building to her audience from a unique perspective. Describing interiors, great views and the city?s vibrant opportunities, the lady turns out to be an estate agent who is selling an up-market architectural proposal and a lifestyle that grafts the ?value? of art with its institutions. Moving through the labyrinthine building, she finds herself lost in narrow corridors and staircases. Meanwhile the future development projects itself into the group?s collective imagination, fed by the visionary architectural model on display. ?The Good Life (a guided tour)? redefines our perception of the art institution and raises our awareness of its part in the ?creative city?, a scenario that is being played out in metropoles around the globe. The apparently ?neutral? frame of the gallery space which envelopes the spiritual and cultural heritage of our society, recedes in favour of that of a real estate opportunity. The estate agent is the embodiment of the denial of any possible negative impact that the creative race between cities in a neo-liberal context might generate. Through a generic language that excludes any notion of ?gentrification?, her hyperbolic tour creates an exclusive identity. The film?s elaborate treatment of sound ? as well as the absence of it ? disrupts the untenable perfection of the architecture, and its mediated forms, making the emptiness of the building sensible, which actually is what the estate agent is selling: a lifestyle fantasy projected on an empty shell. ?The Good Life (a guided tour)? is an autonomous single screen video piece that can be presented either in an exhibition or screening context. In its first presentation the video functioned as a ?marketing tool? for a fictional real estate development ?The Good Life?, which was the title of the Vermeir/Heiremans solo exhibition at Arnolfini, Bristol (UK) in Spring 2009. The show was curated by Nav Haq.

A Modest Proposal (in a Black Box)
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 28:7 | Belgique | Royaume-Uni | 2018

In A Modest Proposal, Vermeir & Heiremans are discussing a new financial model with a lawyer. They question if financialisation can be re-purposed towards generating a more equitable arts ecology. Considering the financialisation of public art collections and museum buildings, the financial model should benefit not only investors, but also its stakeholders, the creators of the art`s value, the art workers. The artists propose to financialise Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park as their case-study. It is located close to Battersea Power Station, a former coal-fired power station that will soon house Apple's London headquarters and luxury apartments. The artists propose to "pump" up the gallery`s value, and generate a return for the wider art community. The conversation between artists and lawyer takes place in Vermeir & Heiremans` house, which they define as an art work. Meanwhile the absent-minded lawyer`s assistant often slips away from the discussions. She appears to be able to materialise and dematerialise at will the lofty space by caressing the walls, playing with a scale model of the house or using the latter as a framing device, manipulating the window views. When the artists and the lawyer go on to celebrate the proposal on the loft's rooftop garden she takes control…

The videos and installations of the artist duo Vermeir & Heiremans investigate the complex relationship between economy, spatiality, and social reality in today's highly globalized world. The artists define their own house as an art work, which they use as a framing device to focus on the growing financialisation of the arts, real estate and daily life in general. The duo raises questions about the role the arts play within the ever-growing entanglement between urban development, financialisation and governing. The artists employ financial tools, historical references, technology, and cinematic language to reflect on social codes as well as on the production of value in today's artistic and non-artistic realms. Vermeir & Heiremans have presented their work at 10th Istanbul Biennial (2007), Arnolfini, Bristol (2009), Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin (2010), Viennale, Vienna (2011), 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennial (2012), Manifesta 9, Limburg (2012), Argos, Brussels (2012), Extra City, Antwerp (2012), 13th Istanbul Biennale (2013), Rotwand Gallery, Zurich (2014), Triennale Brugge (2015), Dojima River Biennale, Osaka (2015), Curated by_Vienna at Georg Kargl Gallery (2015), Transmediale, Berlin (2016), Bucharest Biennale 7 (2016), Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (2010, 2012, 2017), Glassyard Gallery, Budapest (2018), Art Brussels (2018), The Atlantic Project, Plymouth (2018), Pump House Gallery, London (2018)

La Belgique est un pays connu pour son « imprécision ». En tenant compte de ceci, ces deux films belges plongent dans l'univers des formes culturelles « quasi ». L'une des notions les plus vagues dans le lexique culturel est celle du « collectif », et ces films examinent des actions artistiques collectives en Belgique ainsi que leur point de rencontre avec la politique dominante et sous-culturelle, et les idéologies culturelles qui les frôlent. Collaboration entre l?historienne de l'art basée à Bruxelles (Belgique) Catherine Vertige et l?artiste Kosten Koper, ces films ne sont ni un avis de décès de l'idéalisme culturel, ni un conte doux-amer sur la perte de l'utopie, mais une série de rencontres soulevant des questions sur les archétypes du collectif, qui ont émergé au cours des recherches et du tournage, allant de la micro-institution à l'orgie. « Est-il encore vivant, ou est-il mort ? » est ce que Resnais a déclaré être la seule question qui méritait d'être posée dans l'art, et le médium du film est utilisé comme outil de recherche pour examiner la valeur et l'inutilité de l'histoire.


Catherine Vertige est née en 1971. Elle est historienne de l'art et membre fondatrice de Komplot, un collectif de conservateurs d?art contemporain basé à Bruxelles. Kosten Koper est né en 1970. Il est artiste, cinéaste, musicien, éditeur de musique électronique, conservateur et organisateur de manifestations. Il a été membre de Diskono, un groupe qui créait des situations et environnements propices à une perception créative de la musique.

Videotage (literally merging the two concepts of "Video" and "Montage") is a non-profit interdisciplinary artist collective, which focuses on the development of video and new media art in Hong Kong. Founded in 1985, Videotage began as a facilitator for collaborative time-based projects. In a small shared office with two chairs and table, Videotage`s support to artists came in the form of labour and equipment for production and post-production, and the exchange of ideas. Videotage has since expanded to include publications, education, exhibitions and screenings. Videotage is a vital link in presenting media arts to a broader community. Programming is guided by its Artistic Director and full-time staff, and governed by a Board of Directors. Videotage aims to boost awareness of Hong Kong video and new media art activities locally and internationally. Our artists members has participated in numerous cultural exchanges and art festivals. Including Asia-Pacific Triennial (Australia); European Media Art Festival (Germany); Experimenta (Australia); Hong Kong International Film Festival; Hong Kong Art Festival; Image Forum Festival (Japan); Kwangju Biennial (Korea); Multimedia Art Asia Pacific (Australia); Transmediale (Germany); Venice Biennale (Italy); and Videobrasil (Brazil). Videotage also invites internationally renowned artists and curators to present talks, seminars and workshop in Hong Kong. Previous guests include: Francesca da Rimini, cyber-feminist; Gary Hill, video artist; Barbara London, curator, Department of Film and Video, Museum of Modern Art, New York; Momentum, mixed electronic media performance group; Jun-jieh Wang, Taiwan-based video artist, among others.

Dragalina
Documentaire | dv | couleur | 65:0 | Belgique | Roumanie | 2010

Dans le village roumain de Dragalina, Radu, 17 ans, ronge son ennui aux côtés de sa mère instable. Enfermé dans cet univers lourd et apathique, l?adolescent semble attendre un hypothétique changement de vie. Les réalisateurs partent à la rencontre de ce jeune homme, leur cousin, aux prises avec une quête d?identité et de sens qu?il a lui-même du mal à cerner.


"Ecaterina Vidick est née en 1981 à Bruxelles. Après des études de mise en scène à l?INSAS, elle se dirige vers le documentaire sonore. Elle réalise son premier travail en 2004, à l?accueil des urgences d?un hôpital bruxellois situé au c?ur de la ville, où indigents et étrangers cherchent autre chose que des soins. C?est cet « autre chose », justement, qu?elle recherche dans chacune de ses créations où les aspects social et humain occupent une place de choix. « Dragalina », pour une première collaboration fraternelle, est aussi sa première expérience cinématographique." Né le 10 novembre 1978 à Bruxelles, photographe de formation (INRACI, Académie des Beaux-Arts de Saint Gilles, le 75?), Sherban Vidick se tourne vers le cinéma pour le projet Dragalina, initié par sa s?ur Ecaterina. En parallèle, il entame la réalisation d?un projet photographique autour de ce même village et de ses habitants. Ses influences tant en photo qu?en cinéma se situent quelque part entre Raymond Depardon et Stephen Shore

2009, in the high plateau of the Peruvian jungle, near the border to Ecuador, a mining company forces their way into the depths of the forest to search for mineral resources. They do this with the government`s permission, but without consent from the indigenous people, the Awajun natives who live there. Known for their fearlessness, the Awajun stand up to the invaders. But in the fight for their land they are brutally struck down by the government. Violence breeds counter-violence. Years later, young natives learn to use the videocameras and start to follow the trail of violence.

En passant par le front du Bassac, dans Phnom Penh, si l?on est un voyageur attentif, on sera surpris de voir surgir une construction qui pourrait avoir l?air d?un immeuble, mais qui ressemble davantage à un grouillement architectural étonnant. On ne perçoit tout d?abord qu?un enchevêtrement de lignes bleues, de points verts et d?étoffes colorées, en suspension sur ce qui devait être autrefois une façade blanche d?architecture moderne.On apprend alors que ce grand organisme vivant a été construit par l?architecte cambodgien Van Molyvann sur le modèle de l?utopie de la Cité radieuse...


Jean Luc Vilmouth was born in Moselle and is now living in Paris. Since 1978, he has been exhibiting his works throughout the world.

? On the 3rd of March 2009, Clemens K. the head of finances of an Amsterdam arts fund, disappeared with 15.8 million Euros, his three children and two women, and they have not been seen ever since. The people in his former environment are left behind in shock: bewildered, angry, surprised and concerned. Strangely enough, it is not so much the massive amount he?s stolen: it is the treachery, which affects them most. Unexpected, and apparently out of nowhere, he?s broken all conventions, on a personal and professional level. 

The point of departure of the film is the paradoxical, almost mythical idea that the meticulous man of numbers, he, who has sent innumerable warnings and corrections to us artists, did what most artists want to do- but do so, only in a symbolic manner: crossing boundaries, putting his own needs and wants first with little need for a justification to the outside world. The cliché of the 'dull' world of the accountant versus the 'exciting' life of the artist is being turned upside down in the film. Why is it, that someone suddenly does something so extreme, so out of character? Where, when and how did it start with Clemens K., the good-looking, kind and helpful family man from the descriptions? Was he the nice guy they saw in him, or was he wearing a mask all along? What made Sammy run? The time before, the current situation, and the consequences of the fraud are being narrated by an actor speaking from the bookkeepers point of view and the people interviewed: the ones left behind. Next to the interviews that I will conduct, we hear a voice over which represents my own version of the truth, a second layer introducing another form of speculation. The man, Clemens is thus seen through a kaleidoscope, speculating on possible motives.

The End of Fear
Documentaire | mov | couleur et n&b | 69:9 | Pays-Bas | 2018

Who`s still afraid of red, yellow and blue? The most famous abstract painting of the twentieth century has invoked much more than just one response to this provocative question. Fifty years after `Who`s Afraid of Red , Yellow and Blue III`, we question the meaning of art over the life of this famous, celebrated and mourned work by Barnett Newman.

Barbara VISSER (1966, the Netherlands) studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Cooper Union in New York and the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht and is an awarded artist. She has also worked as the artistic director of IDFA. Her work focuses on cultural and historical narratives and how these become manifest through art, design, media and science. By challenging conventions in storytelling and image-making, and questioning our memory- and belief systems, Visser aims to provoke a new perception of what a normality has rendered invisible.

Herbarium
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 7:25 | Pays-Bas | 2013

?Herbarium? is a cinematographic observation based on the changes in the classification of plants. Going from classical taxonomy to genetic data-storage, Visser wonders what is left when the plant its separated from its physical features. What is a plant to us, without the sensation of smell, texture and its visual appearance? In a long abandoned tropical greenhouse formerly used by the biology faculty of Wageningen University, during a full moon night, the dry plants are reanimated, in a visual language where nature is shown as an artefact, devoid of any natural context.

Barbara Visser researches the relationship between registration and dramatization. Her work is driven by fascinations around original and copy, historical narratives and constructed biographies, which she translates into subjective documentaries. By questioning the authenticity of images and their interpretation by the viewer, she influences the shape and the content of the work simultaneously. Projects are executed in an array of media: photography, film, video, text, printed matter and performance. Infiltrating into existing systems leads to a wide diversity of works. Visser has participated in the Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil (2006), Manifesta, Trento, Italy (2008), Architecture Biennale, Dutch Pavillion, Venice, Italy (2010), Art Biennale, Dutch Pavillion group show (2011). In 2011 and 12 she?s written and directed the film C.K. (2012). Awards for her work include the Dutch Cultural Media Fund Documentary Award (2010), the dr. A. H. Heineken Award for art and science (2008)

Actors of Profane History
Vidéo | hdv | noir et blanc | 17:0 | Russie | Allemagne | 2017

"Actors of Profane History" includes a series of recently discovered casting images from Sergei Eisenstein’s destroyed film "Bezhin Meadow," (1935-1937) preserved today at the Russian State Archive of Literature and Arts. It questions the interrelation between the cinematographic use of film extras, who usually appear only in the background of major cinema productions, and the possibility of acting in political history, in itself closely connected to the history of representation. In his films, Eisenstein worked almost entirely with non-professional actors, the so-called "tipazhes." Deriving from the French word "typage," the Russian “tipazh” was a concept for denoting a typical appearance, giving an immediate visual presence to the palpable characteristics of a social type. This reading of human appearance as evidence of social and political conditions elucidates parallels between cinema and criminalistic as well as physiognomic paradigms. Yet, in 1935, when Eisenstein was commissioned to shoot Bezhin Meadow, such “irregular types” were already banned from official screens. The censured and destroyed film tells the story of Pavlik Morozov, a fourteen year old pioneer who lived in the village of Gerasimovka and was killed in 1932 by his family after denouncing his father for being opposed to the collectivisation of the land. After the editing of the film went through at least two different versions, the production was definitively stopped in March 1937. The film was withdrawn and disappeared in the deposits of Mosfilm, where it was eventually destroyed in the bombing of Moscow during the Second World War. In 1967, Naum Kleiman and Sergei Jutkevic reconstructed a version of Bezhin Meadow based on a surviving sequence of individual frames.

Elena Vogman is an author, independent curator and postdoctoral fellow in the research project “Rhythm and Projection” at the Freie Universität in Berlin. Her book on "Sinnliches Denken: Eisensteins exzentrische Methode" (2018) has been published by diaphanes. Currently, she finishes her next book, "Dance of Values: Eisenstein’s Capital Project," which is forthcoming in the Fall of this year. Together with Marie Rebecchi and Till Gathmann she curated the exhibition “Sergei Eisenstein: The Anthropology of Rhythm” in 2017 at Nomas Foundation in Rome. In 2018, the trio curates the exhibition “Eccentric Values after Eisenstein” together at Espace Diaphanes in Berlin. 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.

Ducks & Cars
Art vidéo | dv | noir et blanc | 142:23 | Allemagne | 2005

Ducks & Cars joue de l'attente du spectateur. Lentement, comme une goutte de pluie qui se forme, une image se construit et disparaît dans le même instant. Doucement et calmement, de cette lenteur et de cette tension latente, nous apparaît un sujet enfantin : Ducks & Cars. La vidéo est pensée pour être projetée en arrière plan comme par exemple la prestation d'un groupe de musique ou lors de tout autre événement. Cela fait d'avantage référence à la conception classique de la peinture qu'à l'animation. Les symboles qui construisent l'image dérivent des caractères utilisées pour le tricot. Pas d'ASCII.

The three-minute film, a snapshot of an encounter, is based on concrete experience. In an accompanying note, the filmmaker writes: ?For years, weeks, I have had to visit my mother and am regularly overwhelmed by the purpose of life, compassion, and anticipation of my own passing.? This experience is condensed in the film.

Meine psychoanalytischen Notizen
Film expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 3:0 | Autriche | 2013

Fire ravages relentlessly through paper. Individual words, ragged sentences, loose thoughts have broken free of their contexts and flare up once again before melting away forever: ?unfaithful,? father,? ?on 17 October, K. complained of overwork,? ?I also think about incest and wanting to save sister.? The clearly legible handwriting on white sheets of paper has given up its search for meaning and surrenders to the flames. Artist Friedl von Gröller hands over several-page-long psychoanalytical protocols from her professional practice as psychoanalyst to the funeral pyre flaring in the middle of a snow-covered landscape. The notes from hundreds of hours of ?talking cure? extinguish silently, almost blithely. They abdicate their cognizance of the long therapy sessions between analyst and patient. But the burning paper is not the only storage medium that knows of Groller?s notes. The short film My Psychoanalytic Notes begins with close-ups of people?s faces?psychoanalysts?reading, intently studying Gröller?s protocols. Only then does the camera turn away from the faces?with an increasingly faster pan?toward a snowy forest landscape and the pile of burning books: As though the filmmaker wanted to once again call up her own profession as witness, which will remember her work even after the cold fire destroys all traces. The camera moves in an extreme close-up across the pages, leafs through once again. Yet it is just as fascinated by the bizarre ash formations that arise from the act of burning as it is by the notes and sentences dying on them. In the end, the camera digresses once more, wanders across the snow and wood, and ultimately turns to the backlight of the sky. The image fades, becomes white like snow?or white like a clean sheet of paper, on which a new stage of life can be recorded. (Alexandra Seibel) Translation: Lisa Rosenblatt
