15 – 22 June 2010
Screening program curated, and the accompanying publication edited by Nazli Gurlek
This program focuses on filmic practices related to performance and performativity employed by a group of artists as a way to adress on the projection screen topics relevant to both cultural and societal spheres. Ultimately stemming from a curiosity toward the workings of social mechanisms and organizational forms, works focus on such mechanisms as live ‘acts’ of things said and done through the process-oriented approach of the filmic medium.
The screenings features video works by Emanuel Almborg, Ziad Antar, Kalle Brolin, Witte van Hulzen, Mark Leckey, Anna Molska, Raymond Taudin Chabot, Soren Thilo Funder and Charlie Tweed.
Contributions to the publication include new texts on each work on show by Sebastian Cichocki, Isobel Harbison, Suhail Malik, Alexandra Navratil, Onder Ozengi, November Paynter, Sinziana Ravini, Fatos Ustek, Ellen Mara De Wachter, Francesco Ventrella, and the artist’s project Untitled (2010) by artist Ozlem Altin.
