Peter Weibel
Robert De Niro – Al Capone / Donald Trump – Donald Trump

I continued the »BILDERATLAS« / Commissioned by ABY WARBURG

In the pre-election period in America, Peter Weibel has produced a video in which he contrasts the gestures and intonation of Donald Trump with those of Robert de Niro in his role as Al Capone. The title alone suggests the assumption of a good staging and not just pure coincidence.

Shooting Ghosts
Online screening programme in cooperation
with the Goethe-Institut Sofia

Curators: Kalin Serapionov, Krassimir Terziev

What we propose in this programme is a highly subjective and fragmented view on current practices in moving image in the Bulgarian art scene. We focused on practices that show affinity with speculative narratives - narratives that not just record what is in front of the cinematic eye, but also capture all the ghosts that are unreachable by the apparatus, thus projecting speculative views that intend not merely to describe, but to transform the world.

Moving Images / Moving Bodies

 ‘Moving Images Bulgaria-Germany’ is a project by Goethe-Institut Bulgaria, that includes various online and offline initiatives, starting in November 2020. The online program, realised in partnership with blinkvideo, will consist of two curated programmes: “Moving Images / Moving Bodies”, curated by Ludwig Seyfarth, and “Shooting Ghosts”, curated by Krassimir Terziev and Kalin Serapionov.

First the programme “Shooting Ghosts” will give a selected overview of video art in Bulgaria in general. The programme will be accompanied by an in-depth essay by Krassimir Terziev as well as texts by different authors or the artists themselves on individual films.

Critics’ Pick: Vienna by Nicole Büsing + Heiko Klaas

The group show “Antarctica. An Exhibition on Alienation” was presented in Vienna during the past winter season. Departing from a note written by the Italian cult director Michelangelo Antonioni referring to a potential glacier melting in the Antarctica and a hint to a film, the two curators from the Kunsthalle Wien, Vanessa Joan Müller and Nicolaus Schafhausen, conceived an exhibition on the topic of alienation and contemporary art. The focus was on the latest contemporary photography and video art by the younger generation of artists.

UNSTILLED LIFE: Artist Animations 1980-2020
Curated by Emma Cousin and Paul Carey-Kent

Why this show, here and now? British artist-curator Emma Cousin and writer-curator Paul Carey-Kent recently pulled together a choice of artist animations, thinking that the increasingly vibrant medium is especially suited to the online emphasis of the locked down art world of 2020. Three of them turned out to be represented by Ron Mandos, making the Amsterdam gallery ideal hosts. The cast is international, and to reflect that Tintype gallery in London and Hamburg’s blinkvideo have joined in with variations on the programme.

Something Between Us
KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION, Düsseldorf

The exhibition „Something Between Us“ focuses on both our contemporary lives and the anthropological constants of interpersonal dealings: love, empathy, security, care and safety on the one hand, and hate, role fixation, dependency, reprimand and exclusion on the other. Something Between Us asks how these structures of togetherness are changing in our digital era.
Thomas Taube OCCIDENT, 2020

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.

NEW: Favorites curated by blinkvideo users

What do you like? Over the next few months, we will be showing here selections of works, compiled by you, as a blinkvideo user.

Stefano Miraglia: Hey Blinkvideo members! Here are my eight "must watch" films and videos. Happy to find in this catalogue some of the works that got me interested in artists' moving image when I was a student! (Guillaume Leblon! Daniel Steegmann Mangrané! Marylène Negro!).

Expanding Bauhaus.
New Reflections on the Bauhaus Movement in Time-Based Media Art / Goethe Institute Netherlands

A screening series selected by Elke Kania (Cologne), Julia Sökeland (Hamburg) and Ludwig Seyfarth (Berlin)

With its combination of various arts such as painting, photography film, architecture, fashion, product and interior design and textile art, the Bauhaus is still considered the epitome of a technologically advanced modernity. Last but not least, the attempt to create the whole society aesthetically, inspired many artists worldwide.

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

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.

Federico Adorno
La estancia, 2014

Federico Adorno’s film La estancia was awarded the Grand Prize of the City of Oberhausen at this year’s International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. In its statement the jury said: “Through a succession of subtly constructed tableaux, this powerful film is a profound critique of systematic oppression. Instigated by a massacre amidst a land-rights conflict in Paraguay, this haunting work transcends the local context to voice the struggle for essential freedoms.”Many years ago, while he was working at the Swiss NGO “Helvetas Paraguay”, Adorno travelled long distances into the countryside to film short documentaries with peasants, whom he taught how to use a camera and write short stories, which they then shot together. His last two short films are about land rights and property, and how the extensive ownership of land by just a few landowners gives rise to serious conflicts and problems in rural communities. Isla Alta is about the tensions that surround a community when a wealthy rancher goes missing; La estancia depicts the aftermath of a massacre and is based on true events that happened in Paraguay in 2012.

Breed and Educate, 2018

The Film Breed and Educate is based on a collaborative performance with a class from the Hector-Peterson-Schule Berlin Kreuzberg and the HAU. In numerous task based rehearsals eight pupils between 11 and 13 years explored the possibilties of self-education. Based on various materials from found footage to documentary and staged scenes the film circles around the relationship of controlling and self-empowerment in educational systems. Breed and Educate is circling around the question of how lessons should be organised in times of network and algorthim-based learning. Algorithms and neuronal networks have to master problems only once, after they achieved their goal, results can be duplicated and copied any number of times. Kids on the other hand side have to learn everything step by step, the accumulated knowlede can’t be transfered from on kid to the other by „copy and paste“. An allopoetic system is a trivial system, which can be potentially fully explored, controlled and operated by an observer. With a similar theory in mind, the Prussians started to organise schooling in 1717, to prepare pupils for the Prussian Military Academy. What happens almost 300 years later in a school in Berlin, when the relationship between control and self-empowerment is inverted by postmigrant pupils who breed robots, are educated by them and vice versa? “ In Breed and Educate an automated dionsaur is introduced by a twelfe year old boy: “It’s easily trainable”. While he explains the mode of operation, one sees the parallels: the school wouldn’t have any problems with pupils equipped with a suitable operating system downloaded from the internet. Sounds like an uncanny utopia.” (Katrin Bettina Müller)

60 Minutes 360 Degrees GK 2010, 2010

A boy is portrayed with a video camera for an hour on a tennis court.During this time the camera turns through 360 degrees. Meanwhile, the whole space is recorded piece by piece. The boy follows the camera movement slowly thus remaining constantly in the centre of the picture.

Clemens von Wedemeyer
Silberhöhe, 2003

In Halle-Silberhöhe in East Germany, the camera records peri-urban area architecture, prefabricated buildings that are deserted and destined to be demolished. The commentary evokes a film editing technique used by Michelangelo Antonioni in his film, L’Eclisse (1962).

Janet Biggs
Fade to White, 2010

In Fade to White, Biggs delves into the desire to explore remote lands. To create this work, the artist embarked on an expedition in the high Arctic, traveling aboard an ice-class, 2-masted schooner, built in 1910. During the voyage, Biggs filmed Fade to White, focusing on a crew member as he navigated the ship through iceberg filled seas, and paddled a kayak past glacier walls and polar bears. As she photographed the explorer, Biggs tested her own will and endurance. The visual tension of her uncompromising imagery bespeaks their mutual struggle to maintain balance and purpose. Yet, the video also reveals the myth of the solitary white male explorer. Biggs explains, "The desire to hold onto the notion of the 'great white north' as a blank space awaiting interpretation only reinforces the idea of the colonial polar hero. The 'virgin' north has now been mapped, surveyed, and mined, but increased knowledge has not replaced endless fantasies of discovery." Loss and change are implicit in the video's title, Fade to White, which refers to an editing technique used to evoke death or transcendence. Biggs integrated her Arctic imagery with sound and video footage of counter tenor John Kelly, whose age, androgyny, and mournful voice parallel the vanishing Arctic landscape and signal the waning of male dominance.

Rebecca Ann Tess
The Tallest, 2014

The »The Tallest« shows pictures shot on-site of the currently tallest buildings in the world. The high-rises are shown as set pieces of global capitalism, visually disappearing into abstraction. The reduced images are reminding of 3D rendering. The simulated image of these buildings circulates in the media for representational and advertising purposes, becomes a substantial object and the actual spatiality becomes a mockup. The narration is undertaken by a computer voice, it describes the competition for the tallest tower at such divers places as Chicago, Dubai, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Mecca, Nanjing, New York City, Seoul, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Songdo and Taipei.

LIGHT ON BLACK ON WHITEHOMAGE TO MALEVICH, 2015

A moving digital light drawing illuminates a white wall. A hand painting a black square on the white surface becomes visible. At the same time the light drawing is painting a light square. In the end the light of the digital light square illuminates the finished black oil painting.
