The European image of Latin America, especially of Mexico is distorted; the mainstream media only repeats those images situated between the extremes of violence and poverty, and of exoticism on ethnic culture. Little does their audience get to know about the traditions of Latin modernism and maybe even less of the contemporary art scene. This program has an emphasis on works from and about Mexico City, but also features a work by the Cuban artist Adrian Melis, and a Spanish film about Bogota. All films take a critical and at the same time fresh and humorous view on urban themes. The glimpses on daily life through the artist’s camera may tell more about realities in urban life than television reports or news images.

As an extension of his film and video work – and as an antidote to it – Max Hattler performs his audio-visual works  tonight live and direct. Max often collaborates live with other artist filmmakers like Noriko Okaku and Robert Seidel. Max also creates concert visuals or works live with bands including Basement Jaxx, The Egg, Economy Wolf, Dollskabeat and Ladyscraper.

Tonight he jams together with DJ Jouka.
