Moving Images / Moving Bodies
Online screening programme in cooperation
with the Goethe-Institut Bulgaria

Curated by Ludwig Seyfarth

Research into the human body and interpersonal relationships remain central themes in video and moving image art. Artists from Bulgaria and Germany, whose work is related in content, will be shown in pairs over the next weeks. The exhibition planned for November 2020 in Sofia has been postponed until 2021. Instead, a consecutive presentation of selected films by artists from Moving Bodies/Moving Images is presented on blinkvideo.

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

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.

Im Wald (perfect day), 2011

This Animation has developed from a colloboration with the dutch poet Tjitske Jansen. Initially it reacted on a text of hers dealing with memories in her life. All memories were about events in which she didn’t understand the concepts and actions that had happened, but which she understands now.

A proposal to set (work in progress), 2016

A proposal to set CH4*5.75H20 on fire (work in progress) is an ongoing project that explores methane hydrate, an ice compound that has been identified by scientists as an alternative fuel of future energy. Found in large quantities beneath Arctic permafrost, Antarctic ice and sedimentary deposits, methane hydrate releases natural gas when exposed to increases in temperature or decreases in pressure.Gas released by methane hydrates can be lit, which produces a semi-transparent orange and blue flame.This 16 mm film shows samples of methane hydrates.Through the mobilisation and connection of individuals working across geology, science and art, the project generates awareness of methane hydrate, its chemically volatile nature and implications for energy industries.The film itself performs a kind of material transfer, capturing light emitted by the burning samples and projecting it into the gallery space. For Phinthong, each iteration of the project is a form of extraction that makes its subject more widely visible. Filmed by Phuttipong Aroonpheng. Made with the support of Oleg Blouson,Andrey Khabuev and Oleg Khlystov at the Limnological Institute, Irkutsk, Russia.

And You Will be Changed , 2014

'And You Will be Changed (Centre Pompidou, Paris)', 2014, follows curator Emma Lavigne around the empty Centre Pompidou in Paris as she presents the viewer with a tour of an empty space that had housed a now uninstalled Pierre Huyghe exhibition. The show is imagined and told by Lavigne as if the artworks were still there. Exhibited: - Pierre Huyghe +/–,The Artist’s Institute, New York, 2014
- Nouveau Festival (5th Edition), Musée d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2014

Deimantas Narkevicius
Ausgeträumt, 2010

The German word ‘Ausgeträumt’ means a state between dream and reality at the point of waking up.The very first creative attempts by any artist are usually very positive, unaffected by criticism, even naive activities. Refering to myself, I had to be absolutely naive to choose to be a visual artist, in the late 80's when in the Soviet Union, everything was falling apart. There was no precedent of success, or an example to follow in the country which was still isolated. With this film I am re-approaching the state of naivety.

LOVE AFFAIR, 2017

Several lights get shot successively. Some crush at once, quiet or with a blast, others seem like trying not to die.

Being in the Picture, 2007/08

Im Bilde sein [Being in the Picture] is a video installation. The monitor stands on a two-meter-high plinth. The video shows a white wall in front of which my head becomes visible, fully or partially, at short or long intervals. I keep jumping up into the picture, making myself visible through physical activity. These efforts become apparent through the sounds. The jumping height, and thus my visibility, decreases over time, until I finally give up through exhaustion.On the occasion of the exhibition “Spazi aperti” this work was displayed in the entrance hall of the Romanian Academy in Rome, where a number of monumental busts are mounted on plinths.

Johanna Reich
Horizon, 2012

The artist is drawing a line onto a white surface. The line reveals the horizon: it separates the sea from the sky. "To draw a line": this phrase already linguistically contains many different meanings. Beginning with the famous line – the one that cannot be crossed politically – via the (guide)line that is also the conceptual standard, to the simple strike placed beneath an addition, these are key points on the spectrum.“When Johanna Reich draws a line with a broad brush onto a wall, additional content comes into play. There is the track which children draw onto the wall with chalk, the traditional artist myth of the line as a vivid track of creative process, and last but not least the powerfully picturesque action of splattering the wall.”(Johannes Stahl)Johanna Reich (*1977 Minden) studied at the Kunstakademie Münster, the HfbK Hamburg and the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln. She lives and works in Cologne.

Lynne Sachs

Works


Statement

Lynne Sachs makes films, installations, performances and web projects that explore the intricate relationship between personal observations and broader historical experiences by weaving together poetry, collage, painting, politics and layered sound design. Strongly committed to a dialogue between cinematic theory and practice, she searches for a rigorous play between image and sound, pushing the visual and aural textures in her work with every new project. Lynne discovered her love of filmmaking while living in San Francisco where she worked closely with artists Bruce Conner, Ernie Gehr, Gunvor Nelson, Barbara Hammer, Craig Baldwin and Trin T. Min-ha. Her recent work embraces a hybrid form combining the non-fiction, experimental and fiction modes. In the words of NYC artist Kelly Spivey, “Lynne allows her real film ‘characters’ to explore storytelling from various subjectivities, various selves and other-selves, opening up, perhaps ironically, a more authentic portrayal of being alive during a specific time, in a specific situation or place. We learn that to burrow down into our ability to imagine another’s pain or joy, and then to perform these as part of our own exploration for the camera, yields a deeper intimacy than if we’d simply ‘told the truth.’ Lynne Sachs’s work can best be epitomized by her interests in intimacy, collaboration and space.” Lynne has made over 25 films which have screened at the New York Film Festival, the Sundance Film Festival and Toronto’s Images Festival amongst others. They have also been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, Walker Art Center, Wexner Center for the Arts and other venues nationally and internationally. The Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema, Festival International Nuevo Cine in Havana and the China Women’s Film Festival have all presented retrospectives of Sachs’ films. Lynne received a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts. She lives in Brooklyn, New York and teaches part-time in the Art Department at Princeton University.

Her films and art work are distributed by: Icarus Film, Canyon Cinema, Film-Makers' Cooperative, Cinema Guild, and Court Tree Collective Gallery.
