DESCRIPTION

All Day

Simultaneous screenings
oneminutes series

For a period of two weeks Townhouse will set up screens in the bookshop and store displaying a collection of short videos selected for The One Minutes Animal Series and City Series. This month's selection of videos in the animal series is not a tribute to animals. No sensitive natural observations, or cute portraits of animal 'companions'. These are videos about animals. People dressed as animals and animals dressed as animals.

As for The One Minutes City Series, curated by Heiner Holtappels, each video gives a personal view of the city where the artist is. Together, the videos create a panorama of the earth showing urban life in all its forms. An hour lasts a minute, and in just 24 minutes the viewer travels the globe.

The one minutes foundation is a worldwide network for the promotion of video art and is hosted by the Sandberg Institute.
