CONTEMPORARY ART RUHR, MEDIA ART FAIR, 1 – 3 JUNE 2018

“Transit “by Medienwerkstatt im Kulturwerk des bbk berlin

The program shows recent films from Medienwerkstatt dealing with the subject of identity. In times of transition the works reflect topics from changing housing environments to new governmental regulations of surveillance as the new Chinese point system on so called „good“ behaviour. Thoughts still seem to be free up in the sky where birds take on beautiful abstract formations.

Works by Gabrielle Mainguy, Lucy Powell, Silke Gänger, Bettina Rave, Elena Gavirisch, Sandra Becker, Stephanie Hanna, Thorbjørn Christiansen, Lioba von den Driesch and Nicola Rubinstein

TRANSIT will be screened at the contemporary art ruhr video lounge presented by Directors Lounge.

Directors Lounge heading for contemporary art ruhr, media art fair: Besides presenting installations, paintings and photography, we will be screening genre-straddling slices of cinematic art and cuts of media experimentation as part of the c.a.r. Video Lounge.

Dedicated presentations include the screening “REtreat” (RÜCKzug), new experimental shorts created and produced in the context of the medienwerkstatt Berlin, an artist-run project of the BBK Berlin offering production facilities for media artists, and a fresh selection of video art curated by Michael Murnau and Annalisa Cosentino from Delete TV. Delete TV is an independent platform for video art and experimental films. It investigates the captivating nature of images with the specific aim of looking up to new approaches by taking distance from the conventional film making method. The platform opens a window to the world of art and offers strong, wild and uncensored works from upcoming artists and filmmakers.

And as a final bit of dazzle, Directors Lounge presents, in collaboration with the Leo Kuelbs Collection, tidbits from the Mitte Media Festival in Berlin.

Meet us at World Heritage Site Zollverein, (a former Coal Mine Industrial Complex) centre of the creative industry in the Ruhr area.

Find us in Areal C [Kokerei].

Rythm. Rythm. Rythm. We change the direction to explore. We alienate to interact. The never ending ‘why‘ gives the answers in REtreat. (german version below)

Das Screening zeigt Arbeiten, die im Kontext der Medienwerkstatt entstanden sind. Rhythmus, Rhythmus, Rhythmus. Wir ändern die Richtung, um Neues zu erkunden. Wir entfremden uns, um zueinander zu finden. Die endlose Frage des „Warum“ beantwortet sich im RÜCKzug.

Directors Lounge presents Visuman’s paintings, and videos in collaboration with André Chi Sing Yuen (”GROW”), respectively Marcel Munte (”Wolkenteppich”)

VISUMAN  Geometria est archetypus pulchritudinis mundi.

“Visuman shall be the visual man, whose communication skills are principally visual. Visuman is an abstraction; television-head, on- and-off-button-body, cable-legs. Visuman inhabits a world shown in graphs of mathematical functions. Therefore truth is represented at its best. Visuman pictures are recognised as something similar to all attempts to gain knowledge of truth. The self-similarity of non- inear functions in visuman pictures explains the similarity of patterns shown in the artwork of the world’s cultures.”

About

JT lives since 1983 in Berlin, from 1993 until 1997 in Hong Kong.The project Visuman is launched during JT’s travels and stays in Asia, America and Europe. Exhibitors and collectors around the planet love the truth in the forms painted by visuman. The technique of Visuman drawings is Japanese ink on paper or cardboard from 1992 until 2000. The transapparatus picture is a visuman-technique, using a copier to implement a drawing into a new picture. Colour fills form. Since 2000 visuman is painted in acrylics on canvas. Colour folds form. In 2001 the virtual visuman, digitized and generated by the machine, becomes a fellow being in a fractalized world. Form fills form. In 2002 the fractal geometry, evaluated by the virtual visuman on the screen the year before, becomes painted reality on canvas. Form folds form.
