Nude Descending a Staircase
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 18:30 | Belgique | 2015

The first part of Nude Descending a Staircase is a composition of clips found online that were made by visitors—pilgrims—to the remote memorial site of Walter Benjamin in Portbou, Spain. Each of these individual registrations is anchored in the specificity of the location. They start with the arrival to Portbou, go through the small town up to the cemetery, and end in a dramatic descent down Dani Karavan’s iconic staircase, which was created as an homage to Walter Benjamin. The assembly this audiovisual material transforms the autonomous experiences into one collective trajectory, and entangles collective memory, experience and the production of images. The second part reveals another staircase, abandoned and barricaded, on a small stage-like platform, outside the former Espai Memorial Walter Benjamin. The second staircase modestly suggests an alternative mode of framing memory. The title, borrowed from Marcel Duchamp’s 1912 painting, proposes to dialogue Walter Benjamin’s writing on history and reproduction with Duchamp’s attempt—in relation to the developments in photography—to capture movement autonomous from a body. Nude Descending a Staircase is the first chapter in a series of works titled Gathering Series.

Sirah and Eitan are members of the artists-run collective Messidor

Maya schweizer
Le Soldat mourant des Milles
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 13:0 | Allemagne | 2014

A video work, in which the daily routine of Les Milles is caught up by its past - a former brickyard in the town`s center was used as internment camp for Germans during World War II and served as concentration camp later on. With the use of montage cutting techniques the artist succeeds in letting the past burst into present.


Maya Schweizer was born in 1976 in Paris, France and studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig, and Berlin University of the Arts (with Lothar Baumgarten). Maya Schweizer works with diverse media: the focus of her work lies in the making of short films based on documentary material. „Identity, biography, politics, history and memory are recurring themes in Maya Schweizer’s photographs and videos... In general, the artist generates an incomplete tableau of collective memory and questions the way history is produced and visually recorded. „(Cynthia Krell). The artist approaches the relation of montage editing techniques with the concept of film and memorial and film as memorial — a relation which traces back to the very beginnings of montage as it does to research findings by French historian Pierre Nora. Recurring moments in Schweizer’s multiform art practice revolve around the examination of subtly treated processes of memory regarding historic-political events in public space. In the places, structures and situations she investigates, historical threads intersect. She received international grants and most recently Project grant "Lieux de Mémoire and Desire",Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen (KdFS), 2015. The Exhibition sponsor from the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa), TCG Nordica, Kunming, China, 2013. The Robert Bosh Foundation, in Slovakia 2011, also in the Villa Aurora, Artist Grant from the Goethe-Institute in Los Angeles 2008-2009. Together with Clemens von Wedemeyer, she won the Prize of the German Competition at the Oberhausen Film Festival Oberhausen 2006. She recently had solo shows, such as; Der sterbende Soldat von Les Milles, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany 2015. Edith Seeshow’s Notes at the Kunstverein Langenhagen, 2013. Metropolis. Report from China with Clemens von Wedemeyer at the Frankfurter Kunstverein, 2011. The Same Story Elsewhere at the Westfälisher Kunstverein, Münster, Germany, 2010. Schweizer was also involved in many international exhibitions, such as; Inside the City. Public Space and Free Space at the GAK, Bremen, Germany, 2015. Vot ken you mach ?, Muzeum Wspólczesne Wroclaw, Poland, 2015. Collection Alphabet at the Museum of Contemporary Art (GfZK), Leipzig, 2014. The city that doesn´t exist at Ludwig Forum, Aachen, 2012.

Galería perdida
The blind don't see black, they see nothing
Film expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 5:41 | USA | 2015

This film marks an investigation into the halftone print. Specifically, the spherical and diamond pattern that makes up an image found commonly in offset printing. These tessellations form a corollary to the structure of language where each "dot" is akin to a phoneme. In linguistics, the collated phonemes make up a morpheme—what we can call a meaningful word. The dot in the halftone print functions much the same way. With these dots, the reach of an image is made possible, exploded and distributed for the masses. Its legibility is a consumable currency by being illustrative for accompanying texts. When enlarged, the text loosens its hinges on the atomized image. The dots establish a dominant vocabulary contingent only on one another. For The Blind Don`t see Black, They See Nothing, the poetics lie within the parts of a whole, hidden amidst a constituted body.


The artist collective Galería Perdida are known for their multidisciplinary practice that brings together an inquiry of traditional crafts and the absurd, typographical design with semantic operatives. Fundamental to their research are encounters with idiosyncratic found texts and humor, design principles and the moving image; these irrational sources form the basis of a sculptural vocabulary. The use of humor is just one of many interests that Galería Perdida pursue in their body of work. Textiles, dead languages, redundancy, negation, display and the gallery, glyphs, organic matter, and graphic design are among the multiple reference points. Their constellation of objects and situations formulate a place for these subjects to collide, interact, and push against one another while defining the decree that the production of an object is not a singular but collective act.

Armando lulaj
Recapitulation
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 13:0 | Italie | 2015

On December 23, 1957, at 11:10 AM, a US Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star aircraft flown by Major Howard J. Curran left Chateauroux, France, heading for Naples, Italy. Above Turin, the aircraft radio failed and after hitting bad weather with strong winds, the plane veered off its flight path to end up, by mistake, in the sovereign airspace of the People`s Republic of Albania. At 1:28 PM, the intruder was intercepted by the Albanian Air Force Command, which instantly ordered two MiG-15 fighter jets to take off and identify it. By 3:50 PM, the fighters reported that they had spotted the intruder in the area around Rinas Airport, flying at 500-650 km/hr at an altitude of 150-200 m. Prompt countermeasures were taken. The airplane was forced to land and, to keep it from taking off again, the airport was locked down.


Born in 1980 in Tirana, Albania, Armando Lulaj is a writer of plays, texts on risk territory, film author, and producer of conflict images, orientated toward accentuating the border between economical power, fictional democracy and social disparity in a global context. Exhibitions include the Prague Biennial (2003; 2007), Tirana Biennial (2005), 4th Gothenburg Biennale (2007), the 6th Berlin Biennial (2010), the 63rd Berlinale International Film Festival (2013) and the 56th Venice Biennale - Albanian Pavilion (2015).

My Prisoner
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 21:41 | Bosnie-Herzégovine | 2014

My Prisoner is a video work that reconstructs the event that occurred on 3 April 1994 in war-torn Bosnia by intermixing archival footage with contemporary reimagining of the occasion. It shows a young man being escorted by an army intelligence officer to visit his imprisoned father. As the men travel side-by-side in the back seat of a car Shine on You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd begins to play on the car radio. The young man acknowledges the music and tries to make conversation but the officer does not even recognize the track. A composite of autobiography, documentary and fiction, My Prisoner navigates through the space where the historical, the personal and the fictional simultaneously interfere with and enhance one another.


Velibor Božović grew up in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. When he was in his twenties, the country of his youth became a war zone and he spent the duration of the siege of Sarajevo honing his survival skills. In 1999, Velibor moved to Montréal where he worked, for eight years, as an engineer in aerospace industry until he gave up his engineering career to devote his time fully to art practice. Subsequently, Velibor completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in Studio Arts at Concordia University. He is the recipient of the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art (2015), Concordia International Mobility Award (2014), the Bourse de Maîtrise en Recherche from FRQSC - Fonds de recherche sur la société et la culture Quebec (2012) and Roloff Beny Foundation Fellowship in Photography (2011). His work has been exhibited in the United States, Cuba, Canada, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. His images appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, Descant, International Herald Tribune, Chicago Tribune, Granta, BH Dani and others.

Sirah Foighel Brutmann et Eitan Efrat interrogent la mémoire individuelle et collective, et la mise en scène de l’histoire. La vidéo se compose en partie de photographies prises par des visiteurs au mémorial de Walter Benjamin à Portbou. Maya Schweizer filme Les Milles, village au sud de la France, dans lequel se trouvait un camp d’internement et de déportation pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale. Les traces du passé affleurent. Galería Perdida examine les points qui composent une image imprimée, et les compare à la structure du langage, où chaque phonème est nécessaire à la constitution du sens. Armando Lulaj recompose l’histoire de l’avion américain obligé d’atterrir à l’aéroport de Rinas, le 23 décembre 1957, après avoir traversé l’espace aérien de la République populaire d’Albanie. Velibor Bozovic reconstruit sa journée du 3 avril 1994, durant laquelle, il a été, en tant que soldat de l’armée bosniaque, accompagné par un officier des renseignements militaires, pour rendre visite à son père, prisonnier de guerre de cette même armée. La rencontre a été filmée puis diffusée par la télévision, à une heure de grande écoute. 18 ans plus tard, Velibor Bozovic revisite ce document, s’interrogeant sur son statut de document de propagande, de document historique, de souvenir personnel.

Ein bisschen eine komplexe Situation
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 14:44 | Autriche | 2014

Content Summary/ Accompanying Info: This video is an intervention into footage from the first meeting of the Central Round Table of the GDR. The meeting took place on December 7th 1989 in East Berlin, two months after the beginning of mass demonstrations across the country. The Round Table was set up to bring together members of the established political parties and the newly formed oppositional groups on equal terms. A few hours into the meeting, proceedings are interrupted as a noisy demonstration approaches outside. In the ensuing 10-minute scene, participants try to decide on a collective response. Sounds from the demonstration can be heard ebbing and swelling outside the window, while the participants inside debate. The demonstrators are never seen, only heard. The 2-channel video shows the scene in its entirety. It unfolds as a series of interventions into the material that are themselves based on motions and gestures taken from the footage: pans, zooms, the shaking of the camera, the gestures and movements of the participants, the different qualities and sources of sound. These are amplified, repeated, looped, in order to confront and confound notions of inside and outside, language and body, representation and embodiment.


Biography: Elske Rosenfeld (b. 1974 in Halle/S., GDR) uses a variety of media to rework archival materials from the history of state socialism in Eastern Europe and to relate them to contemporary political forms. Recent works in the formats video, performance, and writing have focussed on the physical, gestural content of archival documents from situations of revolution or protest (Paris 1968, East Berlin 1989, Cairo 2011) – to address the body as a site and archive of political events. Various abstracted interventions into and around these materials reactivate political energies that were set loose in these instances and continue to reverberate into the present day. Rosenfeld lives and works in Berlin and Vienna. She holds a PhD-in-Practice from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Her work has been presented internationally at institutions including Forum Stadtpark/Steirischer Herbst 2015, Graz; Berlin Art Week 2014; Sarai Reader 09/Devi Art Foundation, Delhi; Vienna Art Week 2011; BAK, Utrecht; Shedhalle, Zürich; mumok kino, Vienna; Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna; GfzK, Leipzig; tranzit, Cluj, Romania; the Education Programme of documenta13. She has taken part in international residencies, including the Visual Arts Residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada. Her texts have been published in/on eipcp.net, Reviews in Cultural Theory, Springerin – Hefte für Gegenwartskunst, and in a number of books and collections. She has been awarded a DOC-Fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and project funding from the Programme for Arts-based Research/FWF, Austria. www.elskerosenfeld.net

David krippendorff
Nothing Escapes My Eyes
Film expérimental | 4k | couleur | 13:43 | Egypte | 2014

Nothing Escapes My Eyes (2014) is about a silent transformation of a place and a human being, both subjected to the melancholy of conforming. Inspired by the texts of Edward W. Said, the poems of Mahmoud Darwish and the Verdi opera Aida, the film depicts in a metaphoric form current issues of cultural identity, loss and the pressures to conform. The film refers to the following historical event related to this opera: Aida premiered in Cairo in 1871 at the “Khedivial Opera House”. One hundred years later the building was completely destroyed by fire and replaced by a multi storied parking garage. Nevertheless, to this day, the place is still named Opera Square: Meidan El Opera. The film combines this urban alteration with the painful transformation of a woman (actress Hiam Abbass) in the process of shedding one identity for another. With no dialogues, the film is backed by a musical excerpt from Verdi’s Aida whose lyrics express the difficulties of being loyal to one’s country and cultural identity. The personal and urban transformation tackles on issues of identity, loss and disorientation as a result of historical colonialism and contemporary globalization.


David Krippendorff was born in Berlin, grew up in Italy, and returned to Berlin to study fine arts, eventually relocating to New York, where he lived for five years. His works and videos have been shown internationally, a.o. at the New Museum (New York), ICA (London), Hamburger Kunsthalle (Hamburg), Museum on the Seam (Jerusalem).

Anti-Optimistic Earthquake Scenario
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 18:45 | Danemark | 2015

ANTI-OPTIMISTIC EARTHQUAKE SCENARIO 2015, HD Video, 18’45 During the 1755 Lisbon earthquake Voltaire and Ted Kaczynski meets in a cold war bunker outside Copenhagen to engage in reflections on the future of mankind in the face of disaster. Voltaire recites parts of his poem about the devastating earthquake that nearly completely destroyed Lisbon. With its tens of thousands of victims it became one of the deadliest in history and had a strong influence on the development of the philosophy of Enlightenment. Also known as the “Unabomber”, Ted Kaczynski conducted a series of terrorist attacks motivated by a fight against the disastrous effects of industrial society in the name of freedom and nature. He lived alone in a cabin in the Montana mountains without electricity for nearly 20 years. He now returns to his past in Mathematics working intensively on the theories of the Zeeman Disaster Machine, a small device build to visualize the unpredictable jumps of the Cusp Catastrophe, the sudden disturbance of a stable situation.


Soren Thilo Funder’s works are formal investigations of the power relations of modern day society. Through the use of conceptual visual strategies, cinematic narratives and mise en scène, the works aim to expose the precariousness of contemporary society using fiction to generate new potential spaces for political contemplations and counter-memory. Soren Thilo Funder has an MA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and The School of Art and Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has been an artist-in-residence at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, SOMA in Mexico City, Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt and Platform Garanti in Istanbul.

Filipa cÉsar
Sol miné
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 34:0 | Portugal | 2014

Dans ce film-essai qui fait partie d`un projet de recherche en cours, "People are the mountain", l`artiste portugaise Filipa César revisite le travail de l`agronome guinéen Amilcar Cabral, de l`étude de l`érosion du sol de la région portugaise de l`Alentejo jusqu`à son engagement comme l`un des leaders du Mouvement Africain de Libération. A ce chemin de pensée se mêle la documentation du site d`une mine d`or expérimentale, gérée aujourd`hui par une compagnie canadienne et située dans la même zone qu`étudia Cabral à l`époque. Le film explore les définitions présentes et passées du sol comme une zone de dépôt de la mémoire, de la trace et de l`exploitation.

Filipa César est née au Portugal en 1975 ; elle vit et travaille à Berlin. Elle a étudié à la Faculté des Arts de Porto et de Lisbonne, à l’Académie des Arts de Munich et a obtenu le Master Art in Context de l’Université des Arts de Berlin (2007). Son travail interroge la relation poreuse entre l’image animée et sa réception publique. Intéressée aux aspects fictionnels du documentaire, et motivée par un désir de pointer le politique derrière l’image animée, l’artiste se situe entre le storytelling, la chronique, le documentaire et le film expérimental. Ses films – F for Fake (2005), Rapport (2007), Le Passeur (2008), The Four Chambered Heart (2009), et Memograma (2010) – ont été présentés à la 8e Biennale d’Istanbul, 2003 ; à la Kunsthalle Wien, 2004 ; au Serralves Museum, 2005 ; au Festival International du Film de Locarno, 2005 ; à la CAG- Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, 2006 ; à la Tate Modern, 2007 ; au St. Gallen Museum, 2007 ; au SF MOMA, San Francisco 2009 ; à la 1ère Biennale d’Architecture de Venise, à la 29e Biennale de São Paulo et à Manifesta 8, Cartagena.

Dans FILM NOIR 001 (2014), La Ribot fait apparaître les extras de deux péplums, «Spartacus» de Stanley Kubrick et «Le Cid» d’Anthony Mann, tournés dans l’Espagne des années 60. Témoignage des mouvements politiques et sociaux de cette époque, le film construit le fond de l’histoire à travers des corps anonymes. Dans FILM NOIR 002 (2015), la série continue avec les corps de figurants ou travailleurs de plusieurs films, nous laissant ainsi contempler la splendeur de leur jeu. Dans FILM NOIR 003 (2015), l’aspect spatial et chorégraphique nous saute aux yeux. Musicalement organisés, les figurants remplissent l’espace du fond, créant un ballet sensuel et drôle, parfois catastrophique, toujours impeccable.

L’artiste et chorégraphe La Ribot est née à Madrid. En 1986, elle co-fonde le groupe Bocanada Danza et le co-dirige jusqu’à sa dissolution en 1989. Deux ans après, elle commence à travailler sous le nom de La Ribot et elle inaugure le striptease humoristique Socorro! Gloria!, une pièce qui attire un nouveau public et qui lui inspire sa série solo intitulée «13 Pièces distinguées». «Más distinguidas», la seconde série des Pièces distinguées, est inaugurée à Madrid à la fin de l’année 1997. Suivi d’autres série des pièces : «Still Distinguished», 2000 et «PARAdistinguidas», 2011. «Panoramix», la version anthologique de trois heures rassemblant les trente-quatre premières Pièces distinguées, est inaugurée en 2003 à la Tate Modern et a voyagé ensuite dans d’autres institutions européennes, telles la Reina Sofía de Madrid ou le Centre Pompidou à Paris. En 2000, La Ribot amorce son travail vidéo, et expérimente plus particulièrement l’utilisation du plan-séquence, tourné du point de vue du corps impliqué dans une performance. Cette approche a irrigué de nombreuses oeuvres depuis les années 2000, dont l’installation «Despliegue», 2001, et le travail complexe mené avec la pièce «Mariachi 17», 2009. La même année, elle prend comme base «Mariachi 17» afin de mettre en place «Llámame Mariachi», un nouveau travail mêlant vidéo et performance live des trois interprètes. En 2004, La Ribot arrive à Genève, en Suisse. Elle y fonde et co-dirige entre 2004 et 2008 Art/Action, un département destiné à l’enseignement et à la recherche du live art basé à la Haute École d’Art et de Design (HEAD) de Genève. Les années 2000 voient aussi le développement de la pièce participative de grande envergure «40 Espontáneos», 2004 ; lancée en 2006 à l’Art Unlimited de Bâle, la pièce «Laughing Hole» ; et «Gustavia», 2008, un duo conçu et joué avec la danseuse, chorégraphe et directrice du Centre National de la Danse de France, Mathilde Monnier. En 2011, elle lance «PARAdistinguidas», une nouvelle série des Pièces distinguées conçue pour cinq danseuses et vingt figurants volontaires ; en 2012 elle achève «EEEXEEECUUUUTIOOOOONS!!!», une commande chorégraphique majeure du Ballet de Lorraine à Nancy, en France. Le travail vidéo de La Ribot est présenté au sein de collections privées et publiques dans toute l’Europe et elle continue à développer et présenter son travail à l’international. Elle a participé à des expositions au Japon, en Corée du Sud et à Mexico: en 2012, le MUAC (Mexico City’s Contemporary Art University Museum) a inauguré son espace d’exposition de live art en proposant une exposition monographique sur son oeuvre. En 2014, aux côtés du compositeur et pianiste Carles Santons, elle a produit «Beware of Imitations!», une vidéo hommage à la danseuse américaine Loie Fuller. Elle poursuit son travail à l’international depuis sa base située à Genève, en Suisse, où elle vit avec le chorégraphe suisse Gilles Jobin.

La Ribot revisite des films de l’histoire du cinéma. Dans «Film noir 001», La Ribot fait apparaître les figurants de deux péplums, «Spartacus» de Stanley Kubrick et «Le Cid» d’Anthony Mann, tournés dans l’Espagne des années 60. Témoignage des mouvements politiques et sociaux de cette époque, le film construit le fond de l’histoire à travers des corps anonymes. Dans « Film noir 002», la série continue avec les corps de figurants ou travailleurs de plusieurs films, nous laissant ainsi contempler la splendeur de leur jeu. Dans « Film noir 003», l’aspect spatial et chorégraphique est central. Musicalement organisés, les figurants remplissent l’espace du fond, créant un ballet sensuel et drôle, parfois catastrophique, toujours impeccable.

In the course of one day, the flm follows various characters in their local environment, which is infuenced by the presence of an industrial plant. Their individual sights tell about the relation between human being and industry.

Towards the production of Dialogues On The Market Of Bronze and Other Precious Materials
Fiction expérimentale | 0 | couleur | 16:0 | Grèce | 2013

The video installation “Towards the production of Dialogues On The Market Of Bronze and Other Precious Materials” has as a starting point of reference Bertolt Brecht’s The Messingkauf Dialogues, a theoretical work in a dialectical form that dates back to 1939 and was written in four different versions in a period of four years but remained incomplete. The work situates a reinterpreted version of Brecht’s work, connected to the socio-economic circumstances regarding contemporary society and the implications that these may cause, in the structures of a monetary policy, and its reverberations in the cultural sphere. Based on Brecht’s four nights’ structure the artist aims to provoke correlations regarding two structures, the structure of politics and the structure of finance using their architectural form and specificities as a visual starting point. The work motivates the viewer to contemplate all the above elements in a manner that the aesthetic experience of viewing it produces a platform for the critical engagement of the spectator with the socio-political signifiers that are presented. Theo Prodromidis’s video installation has a specific social context, to collective and private experiences as a consequence of politico-economic and political-cultural locations that are densified in a narrativized, critical and poetic process. Katerina Nikou, co-curator of AGORA text for the guidebook of AGORA, 4th Athens Biennale, Greece


Theo Prodromidis born in Thessaloniki in 1979, lives and works in Athens, Greece. He studied Contemporary Media Practice at the University of Westminster and was awarded an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 2007, in London, UK. His work has been exhibited in galleries, museums and festivals such as Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, 5th Thessaloniki Biennale, 4th Athens Biennale, Athens & Epidaurus Festival, Kunsthalle Athena, Ileana Tounta Art Centre, Werkleitz zentrum für medienkunst, Contour Mechelen, State Museum of Contemporary Art, Tramway, Glascow, Centre Pompidou, Fondazione Merz, Museum of Cinema, Thessaloniki, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art i.a.

The Offspring Resembles the Parent
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 13:44 | Suède | 2015

The Offspring Resembles the Parent (2015) is a new film made for the 2015 Venice Biennale. Like Selander’s earlier works, it takes as its starting point a specific event or situation of crisis within society—in this case the current economic state and our increasingly crumbling faith in the monetary systems, with links to the European situation during World War I and the interwar years. A major part of the film’s imagery consists of Notgeld—emergency banknotes—often colourful and with a strong visual impact, printed on paper or fabric. Their obviously fictitious character—they represent gigantic figures— points to the imperceptible flows within today’s digital economies. Not unlike language, economic value is built on an agreement, a mutual understanding. The fictitious reality of finance only reveals its relation to the human, the body, to work and to nature in a situation of crisis in which the human conditions and connections to colonialism and warfare become clear.


Lina Selander is one of Sweden’s most innovative moving image artists. Her films and installations often focus on junctures in history where a system or physical place collapses and something new begins to emerge; the narrative of mechanical cinema giving way to that of digital video, or a political or economic system plummeting into a new one. Her works revolve around images as memories, imprints and representations. Selander’s process is similar to that of the scientist or poet. Each work constitutes a dense archive of facts and observations, occasionally in dialogue with other films, works of art or literature. The precise, rhythmic editing and use of sound in her films generate a unique temporality and strong internal pressure, and take intuitive leaps between associations and meanings. Selander’s work has been shown at Index, The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Moderna Museet, VOX - centre de l’image contemporaine, Montréal and in international group shows, biennales and festivals, for example in the Venice Biennale 2015, The Kiev Biennale, Seoul Media Art Biennale 2014, Manifesta 9-European Biennal of Contemporary Art 2012, and the Bucharest Biennale 4, 2010. .... Oscar Mangione works with Lina Selander and has participated with her in several exhibitions. From 2006 to 2012 he edited and wrote for the magazine and art project Geist and took part in the following exhibitions, performances and projects: Överlämningen, Konsthall C, 2013; Suðurlandsvegur, The Reykjavík Arts Festival, 2012; The Spiral and the Square, Bonniers Konsthall, 2011/12; Geist in Therapy, The Studio, Moderna Museet, 2009; Role Critique, Iaspis at the Venice Biennale, 2009; Geist on Speed, Index, 2008.

Jonas Matauschek explore le voisinage d’une grande usine. Les visions individuelles évoquent la relation entre lien social et industrie. En se basant sur la structure du texte de Brecht, «L’achat du cuivre», Theo Prodromidis établit des corrélations entre la structure politique et la structure de la finance, en utilisant leur forme architecturale et leurs spécificités comme point de départ visuel. Lina Selander et Oscar Mangione interrogent le caractère fictionnel des «monnaies de nécessité» émises en temps de crise, notamment pendant la première guerre mondiale et les années de l’entre deux guerres, et établissent un parallèle avec notre époque contemporaine.

A Fire in My Brain That Separates Us
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 17:10 | Allemagne | 2015

In an initially deserted room objects slowly begin to move; they are manipulated from the off-screen space, being pulled and dragged by strings, cables or the carpet. Thus a ‘ghostly’ choreography emerges, with the objects taking on a life of their own, vanishing and reappearing. The control of these processes from the off-screen is made visible, by showing the strings attached to the objects as well as parts of the acting persons on the edge of the frame. This is accompanied by superimposed subtitles, which consist of a collage of existing film dialogue: Lines from the sub-genre of ‘gaslighting’ films are combined, taking the eponymous Gaslight (1944) as a starting point. A text assemblage on seduction and betrayal unfolds. At the same time the ambient lighting of the room gradually becomes increasingly colored, reaching an almost excessive saturation point as off- and on-screen space become reversed and a muffled pop music penetrates the room. A kind of karaoke video comes into being with the music – like many elements of the film – taking on the notion of a copy of something vaguely familiar.


Benjamin Ramírez Pérez, born in Hutthurm, Germany. Lives and works in Cologne. Studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne from 2009–2015. His works have been screened at Locarno, Edinburgh and Toronto International Film Festival, among others. In 2013, he was awarded the Prize of the German Federal Association of Film Journalists for Best Experimental Short. In 2015, he received the Chargesheimer Scholarship for Media Arts by the City of Cologne.

Spectrographies
Fiction expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 59:0 | France | 2015

Au fil d’une nuit fantastique, un personnage arpente sans fin des avenues froides et nues, des institutions désertes, des non-lieux inhabités, en marche, en quête, solitaire - guettant les apparitions de fantômes venant se glisser dans son sillage. Suspendu aux télé-technologies (téléphone, puce électronique) de l’intime, il semble se nourrir de l’absence d’un être aimé, ailleurs, loin, intouchable, dont l’absence hante sa déambulation.

Dorothee Smith est une photographe née au milieu des années 80, c’est une enfant de la chute du mur de Berlin, cet évènement qui marque la fin d’une ère, celui de la guerre froide du capitalisme républicain contre le communisme soviétique, et le début d’une autre, celui de la guerre informelle entre l’occident judéo-chrétien et les extrémistes islamiques (Palestine, Irak, Iran, Afghanistan). C’est aussi l’enfant du mouvement queer, avec ses identités fleurissantes et sa nouvelle philosophie du corps. C’est encore et enfin l’enfant de la catastrophe de Tchernobyl, d’une planète maltraitée car trop polluée, d’une terre nucléaire menacée de destruction. C’est un peu ce court morceau d’histoire, qui a un peu plus de vingt ans maintenant, que l’on retrouve dans le sampling visuel de la photographe plasticienne.

Benjamin Ramírez Pérez réalise une chorégraphie fantomatique d’objets dans une maison vide, qui disparaissent puis réapparaissent, actionnés par un manipulateur qui reste hors champs.
Avec «Spectrographies» Dorothée Smith suit un homme tourmenté, qui cherche ce que les autres veulent éviter, un fantôme. Il essaie de combler le vide laissé par l’absence d’un amour perdu. Le film transpose l’idée de Derrida, selon laquelle le cinéma est la science des fantômes.
