A talk with the curators and the invited artists will be held after Karl Homqvists lecture-performance "Aesthetic Movement", in order to reflect on the working method and its relationship to the broad diversity of the participants involved.
The Film and Video Programme proposes that a renewed consciousness of filmic heritage has led diverse artists to remodel their own visual language according to particular visual features and styles. Rather than taking a full retrospective view, but through an exploration of the imagination and the resources of historical key filmmakers, an understanding of contemporary arts audio-visual dynamics is suggested. The programme presents examples of celebrated but not so often seen film works, produced during the decisive years in which modern independent cinema established itself, juxtaposed with contemporary video works. These newly-arranged and narrated stories, created by diverse audio-visual artists, are a testing ground for contemporary sensibilities in dialogue with established history.
