Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 16:30 | France | 2005

Intime, de Pierre Alféri est un travail à la fois littéraire et vidéopoétique, où l`espace du voyage est celui de la langue. C`est une traversée en images, traversée de lieux et de paysages, et en mots, lettres adrésées à des anonymes, qui dépouillés de leur "moi" sont dépeints comme des caractères. L`intime n`est donc pas celui du "moi" de l`être mais naît du déséquilibre crée par les mots, qui tissent alors des liens rendus nécessaires entre les personnages.


Pierre Alféri est né à Paris en 1963. Il a fondé la revue `Détail` avec Suzanne Doppelt et est également co-fondateur de `La revue littéraire générale` avec Olivier Cadiot. Il est pensionnaire de l`Académie de France à Rome entre 1987 et 1988 et `écrivain résident` de la Fondation Royaumont entre 1991 et 1992. Pierre Alféri possède de nombreuses casquettes : il est à la fois romancier, traducteur d`ouvrages américains et russes, essayiste et poète.

Coming soon
Vidéo expérimentale | mp4 | couleur | 10:43 | Brésil | 2019

Coming Soon appropriates 218 intertitles of movie trailers, from the 1930s until 2019. The intertitles are juxtaposed and edited chronologically, in order to keep only the information "coming soon". In about 10 minutes, a wait is created by repeating this cinematic expression, in which it is not known exactly what is being expected - if it is something external to the video or if it is an event in itself. Something is always coming; it never comes and/or it has already arrived.

Selene Alge [1986, São Paulo, Brazil] is a visual artist graduated from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado - FAAP. From 2016 to 2017, the artist was at residence in Cité Internationale des Arts, in Paris, where she returned in 2019 to continue a research on movie theater memories. In the last years she has participated in exhibitions and film festivals, such as the Mostra do Filme Livre, at Banco do Brasil Cultural Center in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and the Federal District; and the Mostra Strangloscope, in Florianópolis.

Filmed in a neglected expat housing complex in Hawalli, this out of context mirage disorients the familiarity or nostalgia of the space. The multicultural neighborhood vibrates with a multicultural working force who have consciously migrated from their diverse backgrounds to participate in the daily routine designated by a profiting developer. The tiling of the colonnade, as is the tiling of the dress, is reflective of the blurring of these expat cultures to camouflage within the existing- the existing which is not only foreign to them but foreign to the space - creating the out of context "Where am I?" phenomenon. These diverse cultures try to adapt to a "?" culture imposed by another country whilst struggling to identify between pre-imposed ethnic stereotypes and their traditional heritage. The freedom of the body is limited to the disproportion of the imposed cage, irritated within the larger cage of the structure.

Dana Aljouder is a designer, writer, and performance artist who graduated with a Bachelors Architecture from Pratt Institute in 2009. She received the Twinings Scholarship to research allegories of the Medici in Renaissance Art in Florence, and is currently an academic researcher for the Kuwait Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014. She has also presented her furniture "The Chair" at Higgins Hall Gallery in Brooklyn in 2009 and "Kursi" at the Design Terminal in Budapest in 2013. She has worked with OOS on the winebox installations of the Albert Reichmuth showroom in Zurich. Aljouder has also collaborated with sound artist Bassem Mansour at the Beirut Art Center show "Exposures" and Altofest Performance Festival in Naples in 2012 and 2013.

The Plastic House
Doc. expérimental | mp4 | couleur | 45:57 | Australie | 2019

A young woman constructs a solitary reality by imagining what life would be like after the passing of her parents. Absorbed in the slow process of working alone in the family’s greenhouse, she relives shadow memories of her Cambodian mother and father. The healing ritual of physical labour gradually reveals itself over time. As the plastic roof bears the weight of natural elements, the increasingly precarious weather threatens this new life alone.

Allison Chhorn (b. 1992) is a Cambodian-Australian film-maker and multidisciplinary artist whose work explores themes of migrant displacement, trauma and the repetition of memory. Chhorn produced, co-wrote and edited the feature films STANLEY'S MOUTH (2015) and YOUTH ON THE MARCH (2017), as well as directing numerous short films, site-specific video installations and documentaries including CLOSE UPS (2015), LAST TIME (2018), THE PLASTIC HOUSE (2019) and the forthcoming BLIND BODY. Her work has screened at Visions du Réel in Switzerland (Official Selection - Burning Lights International Competition 2020), the Sydney Film Festival (Official Selection - Documentary Australia Foundation Awards 2020), the Melbourne International Film Festival, Adelaide Film Festival, OzAsia Festival, Festival ECRÃ, FIDBA - Festival Internacional de Cine Documental (Official Selection - First Features Competition 2020), Valdivia International Film Festival (Official Selection - International Youth Feature Competition), Lima Alterna Festival Internacional de Cine (Official Selection - International Competition), Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) and Black Canvas - Festival de Cine Contemporáneo (Official Selection - Beyond the Canvas Competition).

Newsreel
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 8:50 | Suède | 2008

« Newsreel » peut être considéré comme une tentative de décrire et déconstruire l'esthétique des journaux télévisés en prenant comme point de départ un journal du Channel 4 suédois. Les informations quotidiennes jouent un grand rôle dans notre vie de tous les jours. Nous devenons de plus en plus dépendants et habitués à la qualité informative des nouveaux médias. Ils nous font prendre conscience du monde qui nous entoure et du débat mondial. En même temps, on pourrait soutenir que le journal télévisé repose souvent sur une structure narrative que l?on retrouve dans l'histoire du cinéma. « Newsreel » tente d?examiner si, et comment, le présentateur, le décor du studio, et la structure des informations se réfèrent à des règles narratologiques, et ce qui se passe si on les enfreint. S?il est vrai que l'objectif du journal est de nous informer de manière intelligible sur des questions et des événements importants et urgents, l?auteur voudrait repartir de ce qui rend les choses compréhensibles ainsi que poser la question plus large : qu?est-ce que l'intelligibilité ? En séparant les informations des procédés qui en communiquent le contenu, l?auteur veut créer la possibilité de prendre de la distance et de regarder le journal télévisé d?un ?il différent.

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 40:0 | Suède | Royaume-Uni | 2013

The Majority Never Has Right on its Side is a film project about the Summerhill School in England, established in 1921 and still open. The school is known for its anti-authoritarian pedagogy built on the egalitarian principles of A.S. Neill, a socialist schoolmaster from Scotland often described as a “cynical utopian”. The film looks at the school today in relation to its “image” by using the school’s own film and video archive.

Emanuel Almborg’s work is often research-based and includes film, photography, installation and lectures and deals with themes around community and communication, utopian imagination, history and education. His work has recently been shown at Moderna Museet, Malmö and Elizabeth Foundation, New York. He finished the Whitney Independent Study program in New York, 2015 and is currently a PhD candidate at The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden.

Bitter with a Shy Taste of Sweetness
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 8:47 | Iraq | USA | 2019

Bitter with a Shy Taste of Sweetness contrasts the fragmented past of the filmmaker growing up in Baghdad with his surreal California present. Through poetic writing and jarring visuals, the film creates a calm and cruel sense of memory and landscape.

Saif Alsaegh is a United States-based filmmaker from Baghdad. Much of Saif’s work deals with the contrast between the landscape of his youth in Baghdad growing up as part of the Chaldean minority in the nineties and early 2000s, and the U.S. landscape where he currently lives. His films have screened in many festivals including Cinema du Reel, Kruzfilm Festival Hamburg, Kasseler Dokfest, Onion City Film Festival and in galleries and museums including the Wisconsin Triennial at MMoCA. He received his MFA in filmmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

we began by measuring distance
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 19:0 | Palestine | Egypte | 2009

Long still frames, text, language, and sound are weaved together to unfold the narrative of an anonymous group who fill their time by measuring distance. Innocent measurements transition into political ones, drawing to an examination of how image and sound communicate history, tragedy, and the complication of Palestinian nationalism. The work explores an ultimate disenchantment with facts when the visual fails to communicate the tragic.

Born 27 august 1983 in Kuwait. Spent early childhood in Brittany France. Educated in the US, earning BFA & MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Art & Design and was a guest student at the Malmö Art Academy, Lund University Sweden in 2004.

Thistles blossom in the dead of winter, cow’s eardrums burst, poisoned milk comes out of their udders – in a remote mountain village the world is coming apart. Nature’s intangible attacks hit the Haberer’s farm at its core. In the midst of the inflammatory struggle for the interpretation of the mysterious events, the peasant family fears more and more desperately for their naked survival.

Omo Valley, Ethiopia: a region where tribes villages are reduced to human zoos to entertain the honeymooners tourism industry. International corporation have land-grabbed most of the indigenous territory for massive cotton field plantations. The Omo river is been recently closed by the biggest dam of Africa, leaving two hundred thousand tribe people facing food shortages and forced resettlement. With no land where to hunt, no river where to fish , tribes lives depends on the show they are able to perform daily in front of tourists. The fate of the region is written. The one of the tribes depends on their performative skills We went there and after meeting with one tribe we asked them to imagine their future in a cinematic epic way. This was basically the script. We weren’t that surprised when they came up with a futuristic techno pop idea of themselves. We formed a tribal girl band and began filming. We recorded with the tribe the music under the shadow of one of the few trees left standing by the plantation workers. We built a bar together and threw a party, remixing our own notion of partying with their celebratory rituals. It’s been a participative creative process that generated an unique original experience.

Treviso Centrale
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 13:8 | Italie | 2014

The project Treviso Centrale stems from a desire to represent and interpret the territory of Treviso in the north-east of Italy. A territory that deals with the consequences of a heavy exploitation of the land for the sake of industrialization and economic wealth but also that deals with the relationship between the human presence and the man-altered landscape. In Treviso Centrale the subjects try to engage with this wounded landscape, non-places, with the attempt to re-appropriate them. This engagement becomes forced, unnatural, because of the impossibility to relate with places that have lost their social and inner function. Treviso Centrale becomes then a journey into these contrasts, into this everyday struggle between economic and social space.

Michele Amaglio (b.1993) is an Italian photographer based in Brighton (UK) currently studying at the University of Brighton, BA (Hons) Photography at his third year. From the early workshops with the Italian photographer Marco Zanta, Michele Amaglio grew an interest on architectural photography and urban landscape starting questioning the contrasts between past and presence within the landscape. His work is focused on the relationship between human being and space, between landscape and existentialism. Across different projects his attempt to represent the social space questions the alienation from the every-day life. Among the main influences of his work, Henri Lefebvre, Albert Camus and Jean Beaudrillard.

I see everything,” she says, as if it was a curse. Brilliant sunshine, clear blue skies. The sea is calm, framed by a piece of railing. Buzzing voices. A peaceful moment if it weren’t for the fact that the sea is standing upright, vertical, like a waterfall. A rush of images, twirling, upside down, jolting. People in the boat, in the water, screams, life jackets, emergency whistles. Fluorescent orange, geometrical shapes cast by the sun. There’s no horizon anymore, no sky, no up or down, only deepness and nothing to hold on to. Even Eme’s flow comes to a halt, contracting into the brutal present. She is filming and speaking. To him, to herself, to us, perhaps. Floating legs in sweat pants, jeans, thronged together. A blouse with butterflies, it looks like their wings are flapping in the water. The snake-like belt of a coat, a crumpled-up plastic cup, a pack of cigarettes. Fuck you all! She speaks, she rages, and she films to beat being tired, being cold, the fact that help isn’t coming. To beat dying, just for something to remain.

TRUST US 2017, Video Installation Very often journalists are contacting us to write a story about `refugees` in the context of higher education, their living in Berlin, or simply because they`re looking for some “traumatized” characters for their stories. We usually reject these requests. But this time we received an award of a multinational company and it came with a sum that we urgently needed in order to continue our programme. This time they wanted to produce a video, a one shot sequence. They seemed nice, but their task was to produce emotional images featuring the bodies of the refugee students, underscored by the voice of the white professor contextualising their movements and giving meaning to the frames. We told them this is not how it`s going to work. No one wanted to provide their ́bodies ́ to fill those frames of narration. They said: „TRUST US, it will look good“ Finally we agreed: THEY WOULD FILM US while WE WOULD FILM THEM. We decided to edit the material WE shot and combine it with texts spoken by us, relating to the week long discussions we`ve shared. The whole thing became an installation shown at 3. Herbstsalon, Maxim Gorki Theater.

The *foundationClass was established at weißensee academy of art berlin in 2016. Its aim is to provide equal access to formal art education for people who have fled or migrated to Germany. It tries to create a social space where everyone’s resources are acknowledged and validated and where new formats of skill sharing and knowledge transfer can be developed. Ultimately, the *foundationClass wants to question the norms, conventions, and the habitus of art institutions and the industry as a whole. Situated within the institution but rejecting to embody it, the *foundationClass scrutinizes the art academy as a powerful site of knowledge production. Refusing to be integrated into an economy of difference, we aim to formulate strategies that position us outside of the grid of representation. Together we want to find answers to the question of how an art school of the future would look like if it genuinely recognised migration as an essential societal factor. As a collective the *foundationClass contributed TRUST US as a multichannel video installation to the 3. Berliner Herbstsalon, a festival for contemporary art by the Maxim Gorki Theater.

Imaginez une seconde: vous faites des courses dans un magasin IKEA et tout à coup on vous propose de participer à un film. C'est ce qui est arrivé à plus d'une centaine de clients dans le magasin IKEA de Wilrijk en Belgique, où Ulf était en tournage pendant deux semaines pour réaliser Welcome Home. Dans des décors tout faits - la chambre d'étudiant, le salon rustique, l'intérieur design - les clients avaient la possibilité d'improviser comme ils le voulaient à partir de situations données. Ces acteurs en devenir ont tous fait preuve d'une grande volonté. On y voit des personnes qui dorment, qui cuisinent, qui sont assis... Welcome Home est une compilation de scènes humoristiques basées sur la confrontation entre ce qui est artificiel et authentique, et entre l'Homme et le commerce. IKEA sert de décor clairement reconnaissable pour ces scènes et fait apparaître toutes sortes d'associations et de réflexions. Cependant on ne trouve aucune prise de position explicite sur la consommation et la mondialisation de la part d'Ulf. Pour lui, ce qui est important c'est de laisser les gens jouer et de nous permettre les observer.


Ulf Aminde (né en 1969 en Allemagne) vit à Berlin et travaille comme artiste vidéo. Son travail a été présenté au Centre Culturel de Suisse (Paris), à Friedericianum (Kassel) et à Kagami (Paris), pour n'en citer que quelques uns. En 2004, une exposition intitulée Survival of the fittest lui a été consacrée à Wolfsburg, et en 2006, ses oeuvres ont été présentées à la Biennale de Berlin. Ulf s'intéresse principalement aux mécanismes socio-émotionnels de la société capitaliste. Il ne s'agit pas simplement d'images enregistrées. Au contraire il cherche à faire participer des gens victimes des stigmates sociaux, des personnes qui ne peuvent pas ou qui ne pourront jamais prendre part à l'Etat-providence. Ulf ne condamne personne et ne formule aucune plainte mais son travail montre ces personnes d'une telle manière que la perception que l'on a habituellement d'eux est brisée, ou du moins devient plus nuancée.
