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.

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.

Featured videos

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.

Nadja Verena Marcin

Works


Statement

Marcin’s works, which include, besides videos and live performances, performance-based photographs, use her own identity and personality to explore the depths and limits of our social behaviour, trusted rites, and the resulting vulnerabilities. Seemingly unchangeable conditions are shattered in surprising ways, and freshly and playfully reconstituted on several levels.

The viewer, as a pure observer in a deceptive state of safety, is confronted with an apparently trustworthy situation that Marcin, bit by bit, exposes as a social construct and humorously questions. The enduring emotional intensity of the work opens-up the (frequently bewildered) observer to new ways of viewing customary systems and connections.

Nadja Verena Marcin studied at SoA, Columbia University, New York. She has won numerous prizes, amongst others:

International Artist Career Development Grant, ARTworks Int. Inc., Fulbright, DAAD and exhibited her works in international exhibitions, biennials, and galleries such as

"Qui Vive?" 'Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Moscow MOMA, 2010;

About the video

Inspired by science-fiction movies, such as LOGAN’S RUN (1976), Marcin has created a further complex metaphor of our time with her video TRIPLE F (2013). The film tells the story of three lady rulers at war with each other. The protagonists not only prefer different environments ranging from a castle to urban living; they also differ from each other in terms of look: Like their territories, each is represented by one of the basic colors blue, yellow, and red. At the same time, the striving for power and independence is a shared desire, as much as all of them suffer from feelings of imperfection and repressions. Apart from sociopolitical and economic issues which, among others, question performance- and profit-oriented mechanisms, the position of influential women is another topic of this grotesquely exaggerated scenario.
