curated by artists Lina Sieckmann and Miriam Gossing
The films in the program take the notion of space as a starting point for a diversity of cinematic experiments. Artistic interventions range between subversion, illusion and passivity. Spaces of uneasiness, boredom, flamboyancy and non-compliance. Spaces that do not exist, spaces that are created within editing, spaces reaching out from far beyond. Reshaping the present through a prism of images, the film itself turns into a mystifying architecture. Spouting, bursting, pretending, shrinking, loitering and absorbing.
