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.

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.

B3 – ON DESIRE

With the key topic ON DESIRE, B3 will in fall 2017 reflect on the latest trends relating to the moving image in art and media from a political, technological and aesthetic perspective. Desire as yearning, wish, lust or hope and its translation into moving images will be explored in an artistic, social, political, sociopolitical and historical perspective and critically examined. . . .

Stiftung imai – inter media art institute

The Düsseldorf based foundation imai – inter media art institute was founded in 2006 in order to establish an institution in Germany dedicated to the distribution and preservation of media art and associated activities.

Artemovendo – in collaboration with Goethe Institut Porto Alegre

The video works shown in Artemovendo present a morphology of ambiguous entities, creatures or technical devices. Natural environments are contrasted with artificial, fully computer-designed worlds. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish whether we have been invited to take a look at the outside world or into a laboratory; even dimensions appear to be chosen arbitrarily. Or do we happen to be entering a microscopically small universe that has been magnified many times over?

Everything seems different at night. Familiar shapes and everyday boundaries become obsolete, inside and outside begin to blur, and time and space grow closer and denser. Our perception expands at night. It lets all kinds of supernatural forms slip in while breaking free from the grip of logical conclusions.

The night brings out the menacing and the uncanny, but it also holds much creative power, as illustrated in the story of Genesis. After all, God created light out of darkness and saw that the light was good. Hesiod’s Theogony also features Nyx, who was a menacing figure who formed the earth out of the dark chaos. But it was Sigmund Freud who introduced the concept of the unconscious to the discourse of cosmonogy, describing it as the part of the human psyche where the day’s events collect and are reconstructed and named in dreams.

Wandering around at night is a way of appropriating the unknown and of letting go of what is familiar – of letting go of oneself. The nighthawks among us yearn to lose themselves and feel completely free from the structures of time and space. In their exhilaration, they become empty darkness themselves. They become the night that creates the shapes and universes that will influence their own future selves. The end of an eventful night out on the town is often like waking up from a dream rich with vague memories that will return as something strangely familiar in the nights to come.

Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof will be showing the video programme “In the Heat of the Night” 8 November 2014 from 12 am to 20 pm, featuring works by Keren Cytter, Maya Deren, Johanna Domke, Annika Kahrs, Melanie Manchot, Vanessa Nica Mueller, Stella Rossié & Nicola Gördes, Yorgos Sapountzis, Jeremy Shaw, Stacey Steers, Rebecca Ann Tess, Jaan Toomik and Tobias Zielony.
