Make love not war
Installation vidéo | dv | couleur | 2:10 | Canada | 2003

Dans le très succinct "Make Love, Not War" (2003), la phrase classique du titre apparaît sous forme d'écriture avançant lentement sur des gros plans de superbes tulipes ou de fourmis en train de se nourrir.

Lisa Steele est née à Kansas City dans le Missouri, en 1947, et a étudié à la University of Missouri avant de s'installer à Toronto en 1971. Né à Victoria en Colombie-Britannique en 1952, Kim Tomczak est diplômé de la Vancouver School of Art (aujourd'hui l'Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design). Steele et Tomczak enseignent tous deux au département des beaux-arts de la University of Toronto. Lisa Steele et Kim Tomczak ?uvrent dans le milieu des arts médiatiques depuis les années 1970. Comme artistes, administrateurs, professeurs, auteurs, commissaires, créateurs d'événements et de projets, ils ont profondément influencé la vidéo et les disciplines connexes au Canada, et ce depuis le début de leur collaboration en 1983.

The Afternoon Knows What the Morning Never Suspected
Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur et n&b | 21:0 | Canada | 2018

The Afternoon Knows What the Morning Never Suspected. It is a 3-channel 22-minute work that opens with a brief history of the Vietnam War, assembled from historical documents and footage, and then proceeds to detail Canada's complicity in the conflict, drawing attention to the massive profit that Canadian companies made during this time. The work also references the American draft dodgers who settled in Canada in the late 1960s, creating a context for the connection to today with a mesmerizing drive down Yonge Street in 2017. It is an interesting time to re-examine Canada's self-view in relation to the Vietnam War: yes we took in the draft dodgers (the work makes ample reference to this) but we also profited from the war (in spite of the fact that these profits were strictly against our own laws). The work concludes with the on-screen presence of our two performers, each telling the other's life story: one a first generation Canadian, the child of a Serbian/Croatian marriage; the other born in Canada to Vietnamese immigrant parents.

I created this work for Wola Museum in Warsaw. I was inspired by anonymous documentary photograph probably from 50` that puzzled me as very contemporary and unbelievably well staged as for a snapshot. I was thinking a lot about how language of “reality” changes over time and how it can be easily influenced reinterpreted. And then I relied that reenactments are very bodily reinterpretation of images, that they make individual bodies to be mediums of transformation meanings; and I realised that their growing popularity and superficial innocence frightens me. I decided to reenact this photograph I came across and asked members of historical re-enactment groups to do it. Later I also wrote accompanying essay in which I have put into words my interest in language of documentary in contemporary art

La vidéo MONOLOGUE rassemble des photographies individuelles et apparaît comme un flip-book en mouvement. On peut y voir le reflet de l'auteur dans la fenêtre d'un appartement. Les photographies ont été prises sans pied, d'où une impression d'agitation de la photo-film. L'accompagnement musical est un air de guitare sèche en boucle. Au milieu de la vidéo interviennent les sons d'un code morse. Simultanément, l'image vidéo se colore en rouge. La traduction du code morse est le mot M-O-N-O-L-O-G-U-E. Ensuite l'image disparaît.

Je suis né le 4 février 1959 à Oberhausen dans le Rhineland, où j'ai grandi. C'est là que j'ai effectué toute ma scolarité de 1965 à 1978, année de mon baccalauréat. En 1978/1979, j'ai accompli mon service militaire à Emmerich (Rhine) en tant que routier. En 1979, j'ai entamé des études de latin et de géographie que j'ai arrêtées en 1980 pour étudier à l'Académie des Arts de Dusseldorf. J'ai étudié la sculpture auprès des professeurs Norbert Kriche et David Rabinovitch. En 1985, j'ai reçu le prix du meilleur élève. En 1990, j'ai terminé mes études. Depuis lors, je vis et travaille à Dusseldorf. En 1997, j'ai travaillé sur ma première vidéo-performance, toujours en lien avec la création de bruits et de sons. En 2004, j'ai fait la connaissance du duo d'Essen "Interzone perceptible", avec qui j'ai monté un projet vidéo sur la musique du compositeur américain Jeff Kowalkovski. Intitulée "Westbeth", cette œuvre a été exposée au Van Abbemuseum à Eindhoven (Pays-Bas) en avril et au cinéma Eulenspiegel à Essen en juin 2005.

The Garden
Art vidéo | dv | couleur et n&b | 9:30 | USA | 2010

"The Garden" is a reflection on climate change. It is created from found, recycled film footage and is presented in three parts. "I work almost exclusively with found footage (educational and industrial films, and home movies). Once I have appropriated the footage I practice the art of montage with great pleasure by colliding disparate images, looping clips and manipulating time. Such techniques accentuate the gestures and quotidian rhythms of my subjects distilling the essence of a time, place or idea. Although a narrative is never explicit one may be implied."

Ann Steuernagel is an experimental video and sound artist. Her work has been presented throughout the United States and in Canada, Mexico, and Europe. She is the recipient of the grand prize at the XX VideoArt Festival in Locarno, Switzerland, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Media Fellowship, a LEF grant, and a fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

In this film Imogen Stidworthy interweaves standard and subverted English (backslang) with tropes of class and race, trade and desire in the hidden backwaters and idealised forms of the voice. Backslang developed as a linguistic disguise to protect speakers, especially from the ears of the law. Liverpool slang has absorbed fragments from the language streams of global trade, passing through the docks: Spanish, Dutch, Yiddish, Chinese and African languages. Like all languages Backslang is also a space of identification, spoken proudly. It could be seen as a sign of economic and social conditions and as a form of resistance ? a necessity, or a possibility for different social paradigms. In Barrabackslarrabang, the voice criss-crosses social borders to reflect the mirroring of structures and desires through ostensibly opposing spaces of language, legality and culture. The work continues Stidworthy?s ongoing concern with the social landscape of the voice, its space and borders.

Imogen Stidworthy is a British multimedia artist based in Liverpool. She has exhibited at documenta 12 and most recently her work has been shown at the Thessaloniki Biennale (2007), Shanghai Biennale (2006), ?Be What You Want but Stay Where You Are? at Witte de With, Rotterdam (2005) and ?Governmentality? at Miami Art Central (2004). Recent solo shows include ?Get Here? at Galerie Hohenlohe, Vienna (2006), ?Dummy? at FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon (2005) and ?Audio Cab?, a temporary public art work installed in taxi cabs in Luton (2005). In 2004, Stidworthy was shortlisted for the Beck's Futures prize, for a video work featuring Cilla Black impersonators. In 1996 she won the Dutch Prix de Rome.[citation needed] Stidworthy is a tutor at Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam and an Advising Researcher at the Jan van Eyck Akademie, Maastricht. In 2008 she won the Liverpool Art Prize.

La vidéo "Boys in the Hood" propose des interviews d?amateurs de Grand Theft Auto, jeu video particulièrement controversé. Les joueurs nous font part de leur point de vue sur la place de la narration dans le jeu en donnant des descriptions détaillées des lieux, mouvements et actions qui s?y trouvent. Ces comptes-rendus subjectifs à propos d?un espace partagé amènent à une confusion des frontières entre le ?réel? et le ?virtuel?.

Il a étudié à l?Université des Arts Appliqués de Vienne avec Peter Weibel et a obtenu son PhD à l?Université des Arts de Londres.

White Transformer
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 7:16 | Autriche | 2011

The video White Transformer engages with the cosplay phenomenon in China and portrays the act of transformation from ?ordinary? human into fictional character. It was shot with the help of the Century Noah cosplay group in Chongqing, China who build and perform characters from a variety of narrative universes such as Gundam, Starcraft and World of Warcraft. The French theorist Gabriel Tarde once stated that in order to understand what the social is, one has to focus on the notion of imitation. The global cosplay culture is a perfect example for this approach, since the fans interact with each other on the basis of global signs that emerge from products of the cultural industry, when they appropriate characters from large video and game franchises. This leads to the issue of intellectual property, which comes into play because all of these characters are registered trademarks owned by large international entertainment companies. What does it mean for the fans and audiences to adapt and transform these symbols. Furthermore, cosplay opens up many questions in conjunction with identification, since cosplayers deliberately choose to identify with and perform as fictional beings from a realm beyond real life limitations such as race, class or gender.

Axel Stockburger is an artist and theorist who lives and works in Vienna. He studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna with Peter Weibel and holds a PhD from the Univeristy of the Arts, London. His films and installations are shown internationally.

Vidéo | hdv | noir et blanc | 0:34 | Grèce | 2015

`Restoration of King George II returning to Greece (1946)`, 2014–15, is based on a small segment of a found footage of King George II ceremonially returning to Athens after his exile during World War II, laying a wreath upon the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier while accompanied by the royal family. This footage was originally incomplete, having `gaps` of multiple missing frames that were afterwards filled in with animation (a series of digital drawings made by hand) — completing the figure`s motion as imagined thus attempting an impersonal, though inevitably subjective, `restoration` of this historical document.

Anastasis Stratakis (b. 1985, Greek) lives and works between Athens and Thessaloniki, where he studied Painting at the Fine Arts School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Recent solo exhibitions include: ‘An Endless Present’, AD Gallery, Athens (2013); ‘THE HARD PROBLEM’, Donopoulos IFA, Thessaloniki (2013); ‘Ideas are to objects as constellations are to stars’, Les Yper Yper — physical/conceptual habitat, Thessaloniki (2013), while his next solo show is planned for 2016 at AD Gallery, Athens. Selected group exhibitions include: 13th Biennale de Lyon (2015); ‘Athen 1.0 - Eine Gruppenausstellung’, Galerie Biesenbach, Cologne (2014); 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art (2014); ‘Afresh – A New Generation of Greek Artists’, National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens (2013); ‘ΑΪΝ ΑΟΥΓΚΕΝΜΠΛΙΚ! - Vier junge griechische Künstler’, Beck & Eggeling, Düsseldorf (2012); ‘Drawing Room’, Omikron Gallery, Nicosia (2011). Selected residencies/workshops include: ‘Through the Image, Beyond the Image’, curated by Adrian Paci, Free Home University (FHU), Lecce (2013–14); 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art: Young Artists’ Workshop, Thessaloniki (2013).

Colour Restoration of the Olympic Torch Lighting Ceremony, During the Greek Military Junta (1967)
Animation | 16mm | couleur | 2:9 | Grèce | 0 | 2018

"Colour restoration of the Olympic torch lighting ceremony, during the Greek military Junta (1967)" is a video piece based on a found footage of the event described in the title "the Olympic torch lighting ceremony of the 1968 Olympics, filmed in Athens during the Greek dictatorship of 1967/74. The footage, initially black and white, has been painstakingly colourised, by hand-colouring each of its frames one by one. The result is a somewhat crude, awkward and ultimately less realistic documentation of the event. Even more so, when viewed as a restoration of a restoration, since the regime's own nationalistic aesthetic and propaganda iconography were based upon a grotesque revitalisation of the country's ancient past.

Anastasis Stratakis (b. 1985, Greek) lives and works between Thessaloniki and Athens. His work has been included in a number of international group exhibitions, including: "At the Beginning Was the Word", National Art Museum of China (NAMOC), Beijing, in collaboration with National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens (2018); "Abracadabra", 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, curated by Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti (2018); "Epilogue", Kunstverein Herdecke, curated by Apostolos Palavrakis (2017); "The Equilibrists", organised by the New Museum, New York and DESTE Foundation, Athens, in collaboration with the Benaki Museum, Athens, curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari and Helga Christoffersen with Massimiliano Gioni (2016); 13th Biennale de Lyon (2015); 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art (2014); "Afresh: A New Generation of Greek Artists", National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens (2013) and has been exhibited at institutions such as Musée d`art contemporain de Lyon (2016), Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice (2015) and MMCA : Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki (2014). Works by Anastasis Stratakis are included in prominent private and institutional collections among which are the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) Collection in Athens, the State Museum of Contemporary Art Collection in Thessaloniki, the Borusan Contemporary Collection in Istanbul and the Michael Haas Collection in Berlin.

Hacked Circuit
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 15:9 | USA | 2014

Multiple layers of fabrication and imposition are laid bare by this fluidly choreographed, single-shot embodiment of control. While portraying sound artists at work, typically invisible support mechanisms of filmmaking are exposed, as are governmental violations of individual privacy. Filmic quotations ground Hacked Circuit, evoking paranoia, and a sense of conviction alongside a lack of certainty about what is visible. Complications of the seen, the known, the heard and the undetectable provide thematic parallels between the stagecraft of Foley and a pervasive climate of government surveillance.

Chicago-based artist and filmmaker Deborah Stratman makes work that investigates issues of power, control and belief, exploring how places, ideas, and society are intertwined. Non-prescriptive, her works pose a series of problems that allow for complex readings of the questions being asked.

The Illinois Parables
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 59:30 | USA | 2016

An experimental documentary comprised of regional vignettes about faith, force, technology and exodus. Eleven parables relay histories of settlement, removal, technological breakthrough, violence, messianism and resistance, all occurring somewhere in the state of Illinois. The state itself is a convenient structural ruse, allowing its histories to become allegories that explore how we are shaped by conviction and ideology. The Parables consider what might constitute a liturgical form. Not a sermon, but a form that questions what morality catalyzes. Technological and religious abstraction are linked and placed in conversation with governance.

Draw down the sun. Dig up the gold. The urge to relieve a winter valley of permanent shadow and find fortune in alluvial gravel are part of a long history of desire and extraction in the far Canadian north. Cancan dancers, curlers, ore smelters, former city officials and a curious cliff-side luminous disc congregate to form a town portrait. Shot in location in the Yukon Territory. The disc that appears in the film was part of "Augural Pair", a set of public sculptures created by Stratman and artist Steven Badgett by invitation of the Klondike Institute of Arts and Culture "Natural and Manufactured" series. The works responded to ways value and speculation are connected to landscape and acts of removal.

Jean-marie straub
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 110:0 | France | 2014

Le défi que se/nous propose Jean-Marie Straub est bien d'ordre cinématographique. Tous ses films ont toujours été constitués de blocs. Et ces blocs qui s'entrechoquent, blocs denses de textes, de paysages, de visages, ont toujours eu pour nécessité de donner à voir à travers ces chocs l'invisible des sentiments et du politique. Mélangeant les blocs de temps (40 ans séparent les différents extraits), les blocs de textes (Malraux, Fortini, Vittorini, Holderlin) et les blocs de langues (français, italien, allemand), pour que de ce fracas émerge l'histoire du monde, oui l'Histoire, et du même mouvement l'espoir politique de son dépassement. La première chose que nous dit Kommunisten, c’est que Straub pense ici son cinéma comme un fonds d’archives personnel dans lequel puiser, si bien que ce film devient une leçon où les fragments des films passés – plus un « nouveau », en ouverture, inspiré de Malraux, avec la voix de Straub lui-même (hors champ) qui interroge des communistes en prison – peuvent être utilisés comme objets d’étude. Kommunisten, c’est Straub et c’est Danièle Huillet, mais c’est surtout leur cinéma – qui a traversé le XXe siècle, ses conflits et ses utopies impossibles, en cherchant dans le pli des mots et des images qui les tissent ce qui est resté suspendu, caché, enfoui avec les oublis imposés par ceux qui écrivent et déterminent l’Histoire. Chaque « bout » de film nous emmène en terrain découvert, dans un passé qui paraît actuel, parce que ces questions sont restées sans réponse – si ce n’est avec une image, qui continue à les poser sans relâche, avec détermination.

Cultural quarter
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 10:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2003

Cultural Quarter présente les relations qui existent entre les citoyens et l'observation de la ville, et soulève des questions d'ordre éthique au sujet de la surveillance, du regard, et du comportement humain. La vidéo montre l'écart qui existe entre l'élaboration des espaces publics, et la perception qu'en ont les citoyens, quant à la signification d'un espace culturel commun et de son utilisation. Dans son travail d'artiste et de cinéaste, Mike Stubbs adopte un style documentaire, mêlant le réalisme social et la conscience politique avec une sensiblité aigüe. Cette vidéo a remporté le second prix à Videoex, Zurich, dans la section internationale.
