Directors Lounge presents “Flight | forward” by Medienwerkstatt Berlin | C.A.R. Video Lounge at the Contemporary Art Ruhr, October 28 – 30, 2016

Flight | forward

In a time where hate, violence and destruction shape our daily news we would mostly like just to run away. But the question is where to. Our flight forward leads us into the imaginary, into the utopia or into desperation. Against the everyday madness of diverse control authorities and interlinking providers we counterpose the radical transformation. (text: Sandra Becker)

Flucht | nach vorne

In einer Zeit, wo Hass, Gewalt und Zerstörung unsere Nachrichten prägen, würden wir am liebsten weglaufen. Die Frage ist bloß wohin. Unsere Flucht nach vorne geht ins Imaginäre, ins Utopische oder auch in die Verzweiflung. Dem alltäglichen Wahnsinn unterschiedlichster Kontrollinstanzen und      Schaltströmungen setzen wir einen radikalen Wandel entgegen. Hass wird zu Liebe und Zerstörung zu Schöpfung. (Text: Sandra Becker)

Directors Lounge Screening:

Sandra Becker 01
Bon Fim
Thursday, 30 April 2015
21:00
Z-Bar
Bergstraße 2
10115 Berlin-Mitte

The Berlin artist Sandra Becker 01 works mainly with video, in a diversity of ways. Even though she also created feature length films, her interest lies in the more open form of short and very short clips. Her videos, shot and edited by herself, therefore are rather material for installations, video programs or, more recently, digital applications. Movements and changes of place are the resources for her recordings, scenes from every day life, which also like to be seen as metaphorical, but which are rarely merged into solid narratives. The artist, who often collaborates with other artists and who is one of the supervisors of the video studio of the Berlin Artist Association, will present a number of shorts and very short works together with some extracts of long formats. One focus of the works presented will be new shorts from her recent stay at Porto Alegre, Brazil. And there will be space for discussion.
