REFRACTED REALITIES at VIDEONALE.17

In optics, “refraction” refers to the bending of a beam of light, a change in direction which occurs at the moment when it passes from one medium to another. Through refraction, the light wave alters course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process. This optical deviation requires us to repeatedly correct our gaze, comparing the beginning and end points of our perception with reality, and bringing the object we see clearly into focus. In its figurative sense, refraction refers to a critical reflection on the means and channels of visualization, and by extension the possibility of a rearticulation of our view of things – how they are, were, or apparently always have been.

Johan Grimonprez

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities.

Christoph Faulhaber: Revolution & Architecture

Kunsthalle Osnabrück / June 15 to October 2, 2018
With "Revolution & Architecture" Christoph Faulhaber (* 1972 in Osnabrück, lives in Hamburg) conceives, builds, designs and opens a whole series of very different rooms in the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. In order to discover the revolutionary aspect of these "architectures", one has to look at the social implications of interior design in general. In the forum the visitor then enters Faulhaber's cinematic autobiography "Every Picture is an Empty Picture" as in the eye of the cyclone: The work is split into 15 individual films and surrounds the visitor in a circle.

Breaking News
Von Kelterborn Collection

Over the past 20 years, the Frankfurt couple Mario and Julia von Kelterborn have put together a collection mostly of politically explosive, socially themed video art and photography by internationally known artists. It is their conviction that art can help us to understand the present day with all its complexity, contradictions and disturbing cruelty, but also its positive potential.

She graduated from her studies in photography under Professor Ute Mahler at the University of Applied Science in Hamburg in October 2008.

The latter, illustrated, is called Haus Vogelsang; the name of the film is Looking Forward - Looking Back. (87 min).
Afterwards she worked as freelance photographer and film maker.

Since October 2010, Eibe Maleen Krebs pursued a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Fine Arts (Hochschule für bildende Künste) in Hamburg with a focus on film. Amongst others, she studied under Professor Wim Wenders. In spring 2014, she finished photographic work, an illustrated book and her final film, Vom Hören Sagen (Hearsay, 65 min.). It is a filmic and photographic approach to the perceptual world of the visual and the blind. In 2014, she was awarded the Wim Wenders stipend to develop a screenplay for her first feature film. Junafilm (Verena Gräfthe-Hoft) will produce this movie with her as the director. Also, Eibe Maleen Krebs has been assistant director for the movie „Jedermann“ from Katharina Pethke which will be published this year.

About the video

A child is pushed through a supermarket, sitting in a shopping cart. The camera films the back of the boy’s head while passing the products. This is one of the opening scenes of the film VOM HÖRENSAGEN/HEARSAY by Eibe Maleen Krebs. Ten people, blind from birth, describe how they imagine light and color, how they dream or what they picture it must feel like to steer a car.

The film is mostly shot in black and white and provides us with new perspectives of our own viewing habits. This way, the focus is aimed at the originality of perception, rather than the originality of being blind. During the film, the question arises what the reality of the images of those who see even authenticates.

The cast has the opportunity to visualize their dreams and to stage themselves. Eibe Maleen Krebs transforms these wishes and gives them the space to, for example, conduct an orchestra, steer a spaceship or walk across a green meadow, barefoot, while listening to the music of a violin player. During this 65-minute-long film one thing becomes very apparent about the plan to create a connection between the worlds of the blind and of the sighted – it requires the readiness of both sides to leave behind the familiar realms of imagination.
