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.
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.
