The streetscapes of contemporary Indian metros are largely dominated by products. The bazaar expands into all other parts of the city and claims a large percentage of the available public space. The vast majority of the local shops is lacking the facility of a shop window. Instead, their architecture can be described as a garage style, windowless, rectangular box, open to the front, with roller shutters to lock them at night. Stepping into such a shop can be like entering a complete new world: Many of them are literally filled with products galore up to the ceiling. The product itself serves as the interior design. Every day hundreds of busses with thousands of shop owners and their family members come from the surrounding villages and small towns into the city. Especially during the rush hours the market gets overrun by an avalanche of customers who seem to enjoy their high-density shopping experience. Shopping galore. Products galore. Profits galore.

Artist and filmmaker Bernd Lützeler lives and works between Berlin and Mumbai. In his works he explores techniques of moving image production and presentation in relation with their form and perception. Loops, found footage and jugaad (diy) technologies are an integral part of his films and expanded cinema works. His travels to Mumbai have a strong impact on his work that often looks into the aesthetics of popular Indian cinema and television within the urban context. His films have been shown at venues and festivals worldwide, including Centre Pompidou, Berlinale International Film Festival, Rotterdam, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Views from the Avant-Garde and many more. Bernd is an active member of the artist-run analogue filmlab LaborBerlin.

Primate Colors
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 30:57 | Russie | Hong Kong | 2015

Primate Colors traces humans and nonhumans joined in the flows of capital. It inquires into the life of Chungking Mansions, shuttle traders and commerce objects, which connect Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta with Nairobi, Djibouti, Rotterdam and Elba. The film pursues and accelerates certain methods of ethnographic and anthropological filmmaking, although not explaining people’s actions, beliefs or norms. Instead it chooses to focus on affective components of events and actions. No claims are made about the life of others. To film and to follow affects does not mean to represent an idea or a subject in a narrative of contradictions, it rather asks to be mesmerized by materiality, by the forces of the running camera and the movement of things. When recording the capitalist reality of hyper-exploitation of human and nonhuman resources, one finds one’s own conditions not in the relations of production, but in disgraced facts, neglected aspects and ridiculed signs. Therefrom reality is understood as fundamentally strange, and filming becomes a form of assembling the bewildering and the obscure. Such a mode of filmmaking follows different grades of speed, light, temperature, rotation, friction, fall-off. The approach brings forth perceptions that emerge in relation to an environment, a territory or a color. In turn, images cannot be understood as exclusively belonging to human life, or culture, but are seen as produced and perceived constantly and everywhere by nonhumans and humans alike. Akin to crystals or snowflakes, which produce geometric configurations in response and in connection to their surroundings, images have their own experiences.

Elke Marhöfer: Born in the year of the goat in Baracoa/Cuba, Elke Marhöfer lives and works in Berlin. Via the potentialities of moving image and suppositious writing she works with notions of self-admitted foreignness and radical othering, revising notions of animals, vegetables and matter. Linking for example, the nonhuman with the postcolonial she discusses how nature cuts across notions of ‘history’ or ‘context,’ being simultaneously situated and at the same time continuously surpassing and escaping somewhat formatting. Her films tests inhuman perspectives, transducing a technology like the camera, from a human cultural and technical device into an extension of the intensive forces within the environment. Avoiding the enticements of a voice-over commentary or interviews, mastering or fracturing a subject, her films give space to a splintered narrative, and a disunited audiovisuality. They suggest rather a mode of place; an unfolding of what anyhow expresses itself, so that to film is to find form immanent to the situated action. She studied Fine Art at the University of the Arts in Berlin and spent a year at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York City. Currently she pursues a PhD at the University of Gothenburg. Her films have been screened at the Berlinale Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Courtisane Festival Ghent and Images Film Festival Toronto. She received fellowships, grants, and generous support from IASPIS Residency Sweden, Akademie Schloss Solitude Stuttgart, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Her art exhibitions include the Palais de Tokyo Paris, Manufactura`s Studio Wuhan, FCAC Shanghai, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, NGBK Berlin, Kunstverein Hannover, Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen and The Showroom, London. Mikhail Lylov: Born 1989 in Voronezh/Russia, Mikhail Lylov is an independent artist and curator, he lives in Berlin. He worked in Moscow until 2010, where he developed non-disciplinary methods in his films, installations, performances and writings. His works establish or discuss the situations in which economic and knowledge models are questioned, renegotiated or rendered useless. Lylov’s work investigates a genealogy of the divide between mental and material in different contexts, especially labor and anthropology. On the affirmative side, his work looks for situations in which concepts become sensually available forms, or knowledge becomes a matter of perception. Mikhail Lylov’s projects were supported by Le Pavillon program at Palais De Tokyo in Paris, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, Berlinale Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin and Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

Shape Shifting
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 18:26 | Russie | Japon | 2014

Granting culture to the nonhuman world, the film “Shape Shifting” outlines a cartography of a particular landscape. A landscape, which can be found in many parts of Asia and in Japan is called “satoyama”, literally meaning “space between village and mountain”. This landscape is a membrane constructed by exchanges and encounters between non-human and human life. The agricultural and forestry productivity of this landscape is based on the increase of biodiversity of the ecosystem. The more collaborations between the species and the cycles of materials are created—the more stable ecosystem can be formed.

Mikhail Lylov was born in 1989 in Russia, Voronezh. Studied Economics in Voronezh state university. In 2008 in cooperation with other artists co-established Voronezh CCA. In 2008 moved to Moscow, studied in ICA Moscow, where developed interdisciplinary approach to his films, installations and performances which deconstruct traditional figures of knowledge and subject. In 2010 moved to Goteborg, Sweden to finish MA in arts. In 2013-14 participated in the Le Pavillon programme at Palais De Tokyo. Lives and works in Berlin. Elke Marhöfer was born in Baracoa/Cuba, studied Fine Art at the University of the Arts in Berlin, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York City. Via the potentialities of moving image and suppositious writing Marhöfer works with notions of self-admitted foreignness, radical othering, heterogeneous perceptions of time, the ahistorical and disorientations of narratives. She revises notions of animal, vegetal and object relations. Since 2010 she pursues a PhD at the University of Gothenburg. Projects have received fellowships, grants, and generous support from courtisane film festival, Ghent (Belgium) and Images Film Festival, Toronto (Canada), IASPIS Residency (Sweden), Akademie Schloss Solitude (Germany), Whitney Independent Study Program (US), Cité des Art International Paris (France).

Pass The Time
Fiction | hdv | couleur | 13:51 | Russie | Lituanie | 2011

Since the past is constituted not after the present that it was but at the same time, time has to split itself in two at each moment as present and past. ... Time consists of this split. G. Deleuze when we first met I was 20 years old... 00:07:29,752 --> 00:07:32,027 Vittoria from "L`eclisse" by M. Antonioni Nida is a small place situated at the Baltic`s coast of Lithuania, a former resort for soviet nomenklatura with peaceful sceneries and beautiful sand beaches. Despite the fact that nomenklatura has disappeared with the break of Soviet Union, idyll images of leisure still could be captured there. Post-soviet conditions, with it`s visually obvious overlapping of past and present, create a temporal paradox of constant deja vu. Probably this makes the local `actual` to become a glimmering instantiation of the most fundamental operation of time: a persistence of past which makes each present pass on. Images of past (modernist architecture of the rest house) and images of present (shots from the city center area) are juxtaposed to each other like virtuality and actuality, documenting and staging, acting for a camera and mundane activity. The 70`s architecture of anticipation of the future meets present in a figure of a video camera.
