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.

Statement

Ayla Pierrot Arendt works choreographically thinking and staging, in order to contribute to a historical time with perspectives of critical and feminist nature. Her interests lay on the immediate access to event and experience and their translation to affect, forming the new genre of video choreography. She measures perception and scope of actionability, not to write fiction but to crystallize reality. She looks for ways of participation.

About the video

GESPIELIN reveals the editor´s play with the available material of an 18–day working phase with two hired dancers. Her interests and desires, her way of creating relations of relevance, effect how you are seeing them and their play. To document is to show interest in something. To edit means to choose what is interesting. But the depicted constitutes the gaze of the voyeur as well as it reaffirms the labor and existence of the performer. The camera was looking for the rare event, exotic features, extreme situations, a real moment and the beauty in it. Though, the women played out the attention they got also to their favor. They have fictionalized themselves as the Other that looks back in order to inscribe themselves in history as subjects of consciousness. Their time is retrievable, public and relevant. Otherness can be played out well, when it understands itself and video has become its tool.
