presents works by Heiko Daxl and Ingeborg Fülepp

In 1990 Heiko Daxl and Ingeborg Fülepp together founded the label Media in Motion. From that time on, they worked together on various media art projects as artists and curators. One of their main tasks was to connect international artists to one another and to show their works internationally, with particular focus on Germany and Croatia. After Heiko Daxl passed away in 2012, Ingeborg Fülepp continued their work independently.

The program will show videos made by Heiko Daxl before they met as well as productions they subsequently brought into being as an artistic couple.

The aim of this presentation is to show the multiple talents of Heiko Daxl, his understanding of the media as well as his prowess and creative potentials through the execution of numerous works of art, written texts on art and its attendant philosophy.

In leaving our world, Heiko is on the way to discover another, as yet unknown universe. At least, having known him, one might hope this to be true. Throughout his artistic works, he was always searching for something beyond our realities.

Experience is nothing else than change of memory… By manipulation of images and montage in relation to the musical composition, there are points for thoughtful excursions, roundabouts, dreams, curves, imaginations and lost memories. But the continuance of transitoriness keeps its familiar riddle.” Heiko Daxl

The numerous works they have created bear witness to their joy in experimenting, always moving on the borderline to the unknown. Employing new technologies, they investigate various, so far unknown optical and acoustic phenomena. The observer’s senses, his hearing, his sight and his sense of touch, are always consciously engaged, unsettling his perception. Daxl and Fülepp demonstrate new ways in the artistic exploration of the technical possibilities of creating sounds and abstract images which force the observer to an integrated reception. They seek to make the recipient think about the reality which is imparted to him in an artificial and technical manner.

a film by Jenner Furst, Daniel B. Levin and Julia Willoughby Nason

presented by Dietmar Kirves

The Bowery becomes a nexus of shattered dreams when a merchant has 72 hours to pay his rent. Facing extinction, his ramshackle tent of antiquities lures a troop of misfits, freaks and renegades who form a tableaux full of carnival pageantry, white lies and victimless crime in a fleeting glimpse of Downtown New York.

DIRTY OLD TOWN is a “Going-out-of-business-and-going-insane” tale by young trio Jenner Furst, Daniel B. Levin and Julia Willoughby Nason. In association with Blowback Productions and Executive Producer Marc Levin, this debut feature narrative is emblematic of a new wave in low-budget filmmaking that seeks to redefine the independent landscape.

The project was spun from Levin and Furst’s previous documentary
Captured which chronicled the transformation of the Lower East Side through renegade documentarian, artist and activist Clayton Patterson. In addition to Patterson, many of the same characters from “Captured”
including Billy Leroy and his famed Antique Tent, form an ensemble cast of self inspired neo-realist players. Much of the film was staged on live corners and locations unbeknownst to the public, arresting a signature spontaneity only found on the streets of Downtown New York.

In this gonzo tone poem, Bowery Billy Leroy has 72 hours to save his starcrossed Junk Store from extinction. Longtime actor and nightlife legend Nicky D steers a cosmic catastrophe into resolution as the halfbaked “John Wayne” of Mott Street. There are also first-time acting debuts from the film’s Producer Paul Sevigny, the restauranteur and Club Guru, Ashley Graham the young fullbodied super model and Janell Shirtcliff, who plays the film’s siren and female lead. The score includes choice musical contributions from established indies like Brian Jonestown Massacre, Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Slowdance and A.R.E. Weapons. Also featuring new songs from singersongwriters Lorraine Leckie and Chelsea Crowell.

Filmmakers Furst, Levin and Nason used vibrant characters and locations, both real and fictional, to an eclectic collage, working with available materials and turning film into found art. Executive Producer Marc Levin calls this project “An Absurdist Valentine to a disappearing

The team unveiled the work a select audience of New York City independents and press. In the spirit of underground folklore, Downtown film legend Abel Ferrara presented the screening to an eager
crowd of enthusiasts including independent luminary Jim Jarmusch. To date “Dirty Old Town” has premiered internationally and has been released theatrically in New York and Berlin. The film continues to
be released around America and throughout the globe.
