> DESCRIPTION

From role-play to communal activities and urban graffiti, this season presents artists’ films based on social and collaborative projects to coincide with The Spirit of Utopia which looks at the role art plays in offering alternative ways of configuring society.

Einat Amir’s collaborative practice encourages volunteers to respond to predetermined scenarios while Ana Gallardo, Marinella Senatore and Katarina Zdjelar each interrogate the power of people coming together in a public space to make music or engage in a shared activity. In Nasan Tur’s performance video, hundreds of graffiti slogans from the streets of Berlin are sprayed on top of each other to create a block of colour in which language is obliterated.

 

Artists’ Film International showcases artists working with film, video and animation, selected by 14 partner organisations around the world and presented over the course of a year in each venue. Einat Amir is selected by the New Media Centre, Haifa Museum of Art, Haifa, Israel; Ana Gallardo by Fundación PROA, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Marinella Senatore by GAMeC, Bergamo, Italy; Nasan Tur by Video-Forum, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin, Germany; Katarina Zdjelar by Belgrade Cultural Centre, Belgrade, Serbia.
