EXQUISITE CORPSE VIDEO PROJECT vol. #05: Crisis & Utopia
initiated by Kika Nicolela (Brazil)

The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among artists from all over the world, inspired by the Surrealist creation method, the “Exquisite Corpse”. Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists’ game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final ten seconds of the previous member’s work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone’s vision is threaded together into an instigating final “corpse”. Rather than providing a unitary linear narrative, each participant maintains his/her own style, permeated by the diverse cultural backgrounds.

With works by Alexandra Gelis, Alysse Stepanian, Anders Weberg, Anthony Siarkiewicz, Clemence Demesme, Dellani, Fernando Velazquez, Gabriel Soucheyre, Gérard Chauvin, Guillermina Buzio, John Sanborn, Jorge Lozano, Kai Lossgott, Kika Nicolela, Kim Dotty Hachmann, Krefer, Laura Colmenares Guerra, Lucas Bambozzi, Niclas Hallberg, Per E Riksson, Renata Padovan, Sigrid Coggins, Simone Stoll, Sojin Chun, Stina Pehrsdotter, Ulf Kristiansen

APOTROPIA Sense of Place, 2015

APOTROPIA Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace, 2016

Directors Lounge presents works by APOTROPIA | Contemporary Art Ruhr, June 3-5, 2016

APOTROPIA is a duo based in Rome, Italy, consisting of dancer/media artist Antonella Mignone and artist/composer Cristiano Panepuccia. Their work explores the interconnections between performing arts and all forms of audiovisual expressions.

Sense of Place, 2015
The term “sense of place” may describe both an arrangement of features that makes a place unique and the sensation and perception of place as experienced by the living bodies that belong to it.

The body is our general medium for having a world and our relationship to space is inevitably connected with culture and shaped by the kind of bodies we have.

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace, 2016
Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace
takes inspiration from the concept of emotional memory, depicting the encounter of two lovers in a liminal dimension, a place where movements preserve the memory of the past and create a synthesis of the entire action.
The work has been created with a mix of body projection, light painting, real time randomization and animation techniques.

Echoes of a Forgotten Embrace and Sense of Place are both chapters that constitute DROP , a project divided into several autonomous works focusing on the dialectical relationship between the concept of Infinity and Control as a fundamental issue of human nature.

ATYPICAL. ASYNCHRONOUS. ASTOUNDING.

DL à la carte | the happening in your pocket.

Here is a taste of the future. On the DL menu for the first time at Berliner Liste contemporary art fair 2015: a new kind of screening, directly on your tablet or smart phone, a sneak into our archives at your fingertip.
Make no mistake, we are not talking about an online presentation. We are sticking to our tradition of connecting art and audience in a vivid get-together at selected locations.
But this time it is a collective yet when-you-want-it experience. You bring the screens, we serve the films.

Our teammates here are also true innovators:

shoutrlabs, a young Berlin-based company at the forefront of media app development. Their “shoutr.Boxx” allows large-volume multi-media products to appear with ease on the screens that are presently in all hands… smartphones, tablets, laptops. No Internet connection needed.

Going Underground, the short film festival that accompanies you in rushing trains under the streets of high-speed world cities. Like Directors Lounge, a front-edge viewing event outside the standard black box cinema environment.

Further we’d like to thank netzwerkvirus and last but not least SWOOFLE for supplying some cool “Flat Cubes” for our lounge lizards.

Experience today what others will be tapping into tomorrow. Our (de)vice is going beyond and off the path. Non-definition continues to be our definition.

In the DL buzz tradition of “You had to be there,” you have to be there.

See you at the

Triangular Stories, 2012 by Henrike Naumann

Sneak Preview, Part I:

Directors Lounge at the Contemporary Art Ruhr,
Media Art Fair, May 29 – 31, 2015

Among the artists and filmmakers that we will present at the C.A.R. is Henrike Naumann with Triangular Stories and her installation Thug Life.

Thug Life
VHS Installation, Photography, 2015 at the Directors Lounge Booth

In 1996, the american rapper Tupac ,2pac‘ Amaru Shakur was shot in Las Vegas. He died at the age of 25. There are many conspiracy theories around his killing, as people cannot believe the early death of such a great artist. The work Thug Life collects evidence of the fact that he was not killed, but left his gangsta lifestyle in America to start a new life in Marrakech.

Photography: Nadia Mounier
2pac: Nourdine Qachbane
King: Ayoub Chazi

Triangular Stories, 2012 by Henrike Naumann will be shown as part of the Directors Lounge program (C.A.R. Video Lounge/auditorium)                               

1992. Both home videos have the same date. Both videos reveal intimate things from the life of three teenagers. While few of them can‘t wait to take Ecstasy for the first time at the Amnesia, the world of the others ends behind Jena‘s tower blocks. The artist Henrike Naumann (born 1984) is from Zwickau, where the Nationalsocialist Underground (NSU) lived in bourgeoise underground and spanned their neonazi extremist murderers. This video work is a very personal approach to dealing with the fascist tendencies in her old home are as well as with the hedonistic self-optimizing drive of her generation. The obsolete medium VHS (Video Home System) in its loss becomes a mirror for that generation.

Henrike Naumann is a video and installation artist. Born 1984 in Zwickau, former GDR, she experienced the blossoming of the right-wing scene in the 90s. Her first video installation Triangular Stories (2012) focussed on the the origins of the terrorist group National Socialist Underground (NSU). Her work orbits around the aesthetics of political concepts and youth culture.
