A screening of works by Alex Bag, Brice Dellsperger, Vivienne Dick, Wynne Greenwood, Ursual Pürrer/Hans Scheirl, Jack Smith and Ryan Trecartin.
This programme brings together film and video by international artists and filmmakers who escape formal filmic narratives through the use of direct, sometimes exaggerated performances for the camera. Mixing over-arranged mise-en-scène and dressing up with more intimate scenes of self-reflection, their aesthetics range from the 50s to Punk and New Wave, to more contemporary settings.
The screening is curated by Anne-Sophie Dinant and Electra, in response to the exhibition of Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz.
