Hereditas, this piece confronts us with a paradox. The action is intriguing, and the location suggests something strange, yet magical. A child comes out of the forest?s depths and, with guileless steps, leads us into a dilapidated sanatorium?s long, empty corridors, in a timeless, lonely, sometimes spectral itinerary. The paradox lies in the simple, straightforward way the mountain?s findings are handled. It represents an encounter with something essential, thought hidden, and which may reveal itself with a surprising cruelty, harsher than death itself. Hereditas it is a work on childhood, loneliness, pain, love, death and the desire for knowing and understanding the great enigmas and interrogations of our human, all too human condition.

Une sélection de joyeux actes de rébellion tirés du catalogue de distribution d?Argos par Anke Buxmann et Maria Palacios Cruz. Lorsqu?on leur a demandé d?élaborer un programme de projection à l?occasion des premières Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin à se tenir à Madrid, au Circulo de Bellas Artes, Argos a décidé d?emprunter de titre du film de Joëlle de la Casinière de 1973, ?So Happy? dans lequel de la Casinière se promène pieds nus dans un environnement métropolitain abandonné et ravagé pour promouvoir son livre Absolument nécessaire dans les rues de New York. Rien n?est vrai, tout s?en va. Sa joie, sa liberté et son engagement social se retrouvent dans les trois vidéos qu?Argos présentera à Madrid. Les ?uvres qui ont été sélectionnées, de Charley Case, Sarah Vanagt et Joëlle de la Casinière elle-même, sont toutes trois de joyeux actes de rébellion ayant la rue comme arrière-plan commun. Les vidéos de ce programme s?avèrent d?une grande sensibilité en ce qui concerne le débat politique et social et elles militent pour la liberté d?expression et de mouvement d?une manière quelque peu naïve mais tout à fait joyeuse.
Argos (www.argosarts.org) est un centre pour l?art et les media basé à Bruxelles fondé en 1989. Au fil des ans, l?organisation s?est développée, au départ elle distribuait des vidéos et des films d?artistes puis elle s?est transformée en centre artistique avec des fonctions plus variées comme l?organisation d?expositions, de projections et d?événements, la production, le conservation et la préservation, la publication et le développement d?une médiathèque publique. En tant que centre interdisciplinaire pour l?art et les media audiovisuels, le but d?Argos est de créer une plateforme de production, de présentation, de distribution et de préservation de l?art audiovisuel et de l?art visuel contemporain belge et international, et de façon plus générale, toutes les formes d?expression artistiques qui ont un lien avec les media audiovisuels. Dans un paysage socioculturel qui évolue rapidement, Argos veut suivre les développements caractéristiques de l?art visuel et de l?art audiovisuel ? et de la culture visuelle et médiatique en tant que phénomène social dans son ensemble ? de manière critique, fournissant ainsi au public un cadre de référence et d?interprétation.

Cette vidéo a été tournée à Barcelone, près du rond point de Christophe Colomb, à coté du port. Pendant la nuit, Ivan Argote a "enflammé" à l`aide d`une bouteille d`absinthe et du feu une statue représentant un évêque indiquant la voie à un indigène. Cette statue, qui fait environ trois mètres d`hauteur, reste presque invisible parmi tous les monuments touristiques de Barcelone. Ivan Argote l`a découverte et, avec une intervention à forte puissance symbolique affirme son idée en désaccord à avec la vision européenne de l`histoire de la colonisation, qui voit le colon comme une sorte de héros.
Ivan Argote is Colombian artist who lives and works in Paris, Argote (31) deals with the way that man relates with the myriad changes that take place daily in the historical, economic, political and moral realms. His aim is to question the role of subjectivity in the revision of these concepts. Argote involves the body, and emotions in the construction of his thinking, and develops methods to generate reflexion about the way we construct certainty in relation with politics and history. By creating interventions and performances for the public space, which are sometimes further developed in the format of films and installations, the artist explores the city as a space of transformation. His works has been shown in several cities all around the world, including: Intersections, Cisneros Fountanals Foundation, Miami, 2015; Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Will, 5th Thessaloniki Biennale, Thessaloniki, 2015; Levitate, Museum Quartier, Vienna, 2015; L’éloge de l’heure, MUDAC, Lausanne, 2015; Reddish Blue (solo), DT Project, Brussels, 2014; Let’s write a history of hopes (solo), Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo, 2014; Strengthlessness(solo), Galerie Perrotin, Paris, 2014; La Estrategia (solo), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); Un millon de amigos (solo), Galeria ADN, Barcelona (2013); Tectonic, Moving Museum, Dubai (2013); Los irrespetuosos, Museo Carrilo Gil, México DF (2013); 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, Sao Paulo (2012); Sin heroísmos, por favor (solo), CA2M, Madrid (2012); Girarse, Joan Miró Fundation, Barcelona (2012), among others.

Reddishblue Memories by Iván Argote, uses the artist’s affective memories as part of an ongoing project of research and speculation based on a rumor associated with the history of George Eastman’s Kodak company, and its switch from Kodachrome to Ektachrome. This was allegedly done for ideological reasons : in the late 1960’s they realized that Kodachrome pictures turned reddish with time, and in the context of Cold War decided that the United States’ archives could not end up with the enemy’s color, and so developed the Ektachrome process, in which pictures eventually turn blue. The film, which was made in Ukraine as part of an art exhibition, is narrated simultaneously in Ukrainian by Oxana Shachko founder of Femen, and in Spanish by Ivan Argote himself. In the film, many issues concerning the relationship in between colors and politics raise, as orange revolution, white and black armies, purple and red revolutions in South America.
IvaÌn Argote (BogotaÌ, 1983, lives in Paris) works explore the relationship in between history, politics and the construction of our own subjectivities. His films, sculptures, videos, collages, and public space installations temps to generate questions about how we relate to the others, to the state, to patrimony and traditions. His works are critics, sometimes anti-establishment, and deal with the idea of bringing affects to the politics, and politics to the affects with a strong and tender tone.
Wild Filly Story
Fiction expérimentale | mp4 | couleur | 22:0 | Suède, Pays-Bas | 2020
Wild Filly Story is starring a pack of adolescent girls on a therapy horse stable in the outskirts of Amsterdam. The casts are regular visitors, who are simply there to ride, who are there for occupational therapy, or there as a temporary replacement from school. Playing out a fictional, yet custom-fit script that prompts questions of friendship, misfit, normativity, fetishization, and female empowerment. The young girls method-act through stages of agitation, thriving on the artist’s own rural childhood trauma in Sweden, a horsegirl´s obsessions, and her recent short-lived career as a porn film director: teens pulling hair, grand stallions being objectified, food fights, horse healing, and in the backyard of the barn a kissing scene is being made. A red thread through the film: a young girl’s horse is taken away to be slaughtered that the horse community later feast on. A ghost—an EMO teen, white-painted, unfitted, potentially dead—grimes her way through a hardcore song from the London underground “Drop Dead” with the gang of horse girls as her backing choir. Meanwhile, a cowgirl talking about a stallion having its balls cut off, giggling through her characterization of its masculine rage being tamed.
Josefin Arnell (1984) has recently presented exhibitions, screenings, and performances at Athens Biennale; Wiels, Brussels; UKS, Oslo; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Moscow International Biennale for Young Art; Auto Italia, London; Kunsthalle Münster; Beursschouwburg, Brussel. In 2018 she won the Theodora Niemeijer Prijs; a national art prize for emerging female artists living or working in the Netherlands. Arnell lives and works in Amsterdam Through combining modes of autobiographical and fictional storytelling, she explores representations of femininity, the aesthetics and politics of violence, and the way expressions of power and control manifest in group dynamics. The Teenage Girl, The Horse, and The Mother are recurring characters placed beside clumsy allegories of conflicted human conditions or environmental catastrophe. These characters have endless monologues rather than conversations while navigating contemporary infrastructures with impossible demands. She uses humor and absurdity as political devices, but also as important tools to access moments of emotional catharsis. Trashy performativity, camp aesthetics, the grotesque, and soap opera affects are set in combination of documentary, scripted, and improvisation methods. Additionally to her solo work she is involved in multiple collaborations and self initiatives. Most noticeably the artist duo: HellFun aka Josefin Arnell & Max Göran. HellFun prefers to be brave and pathetic rather than drowning in shame.
The Phantom Menace
Vidéo | 4k | couleur et n&b | 36:32 | Royaume-Uni | 2019
Welcome to the age of cosmic radiation! In 2021 the Sun fell to its lowest point of activity since the birth of science. Its magnetic waves that once shield the Earth dramatically weakened. During this solar lull powerful intergalactic cosmic rays penetrated our atmosphere. Originating eons ago from the explosive remnants of dead stars these silent, invisible and highly charged particles were only noticed in their affect - in what they did to our bodies and to the technologies we thought we could rely upon. Compiling stories from the recent past of interaction with cosmic radiation at ever descending altitudes, “The Phantom Menace” is a techno driven stroboscopic climate fiction film written in conversation with various Amazon warehouse workers. Initially inspired by the proposed plans for the U.S government to install their fragile predictive supercomputers deep underground in order to protect them from these upcoming ancient alien invaders, the film uses once costly low-resolution scientific visualizations produced on these supercomputers to speculate on the role of image labour in the subterranean near future. Planes crashing, computers malfunctioning and elections going haywire - these were just the prequel to the future.

Equal parts systems literacy and kaleidoscopic ecological fantasia, “Pervading Animal” is a film about butterflies, computer viruses and all the things they touch. Tracing the creation, spread and destructive legacy of the first ransomware computer virus the film finds in its wake surprising connections between the US invasion of Panama, the aesthetics of pioneering computational art and the construction of a butterfly conservatory in New York.

Fernando Arrocha investigates the diving of contemporary man in the incessant flow of images of all kinds in which he is submited. His work is based on image recreation and intervention, specially propaganda content in historical films and documents. That process of recreation and intervention invites to think about manipulation, not only technical but also political and sociological, as well as about the psychological derivations of such procedures.

Dawns takes us to a time when sleep is disrupted and insomnia becomes a collective condition. Captured before sunrise, with non-actors in a variety of outdoor environments, the multi-channel work consists of a series of continuous shots and long takes. The slow cinematographic images are reminiscent of tableau vivants where people, in groups or alone, find themselves in an urban environment or the transformed wasteland of a former industrial area. Exhaustion is conveyed by the bodies’ postures and their near immobility, composing at the same time an atmospheric landscape of fragility and endurance at the limit of the perceptible. While the videos look still images, they allow us to see the slow, luminous transition of night into day.

Labadi Rising an urban sprawl, a gigantic, close-knit urban conglomerate along the westafrican coast from Abidjan to Lagos? The prediction of urbanist Mike Davis ( planet of slums) for 2050 could easily become reality long before. Labadi, located at the periphery of Accra where the city just merges with neigbouring portcity Tema is fitting exactly into this scheme. Thats where Daniel Aschwanden, Conny Zenk und Mat Hurtl meet the performancegroup GOLOCAL around visual artist Serge Attukwei Clottey, all of them inhabitants of Labadi. They demonstrate a new african self-consciousness through their way of trashy posing and improvise in public space along the beach. "The digital gaze belongs to all!" they seem to say, looking back through the displays of their gadgets, creating their own images. They stand for many young Africans facing the challenges of everyday life: poverty, violence , environmental pollution, rivalry, corruption and exploitation through global capital and own elites. The collage as a principle of life, seemingly omnipresent tool to appropriate symbolic and real territories serves as a matrix also for the videoshooting. The big themes are to be found in microspaces and depict themselves in surprizing transitions; locations, things, humans, actions, smells, realities, sounds, continuously measured, built-in, destroyed, rearranged and applied again, the construction of a future.
Daniel Aschwanden is experimenting with transdisciplinary methods in urban contexts departing from body related agendas applying a choreographic gaze to urban surroundings. His works articulate themselves in a wide range of formats reaching from interventions in public spaces to installations and performances in Gallery spaces and theatres and relating social with art agendas.

Abyss portrays an urban reality characterised by migration and change ? the movement of people, the movement of money and power, and the drift of the imagination. Filmed in East London, including the 2012 Olympic construction site the film is set within spaces of the modern city ? markets, gyms, parking lots, parks, squares, streets and stores. The main character, O, negotiates her material world but the city?s economical, political and social demands appear to have been absorbed into her movements, speech and psychology. The film drifts between a material world and its psychological effects.
Knut Åsdam was born in Trondheim (1968). He currently lives and works in Oslo. Åsdam established his international work as an artist through the New York context where he lived from 94-04 and attended the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, NYC (94-95). Previously he studied at the Jan van Eyck Akademie (92-94), Goldsmiths College, London (89-92) and Wimbledon School of Art, London (88-89) after preparatory studies in Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics at the University of Oslo and Maui Community College, University of Hawaii (86-89). Though expressed in very diverse forms, the main interest of Åsdam?s work remains a consistent concern for the manner in which each individual constructs and negotiates his or her identity in relation to the change and organizations of contemporary society. This sensitivity to the instability of the self often expands on the merits of queer theory and feminism, as well as psychology of language and (lacanian) psychoanalysis. His investigation of the relationship between language, the body and the usage and perception of public urban spaces, includes a look at structures of political power and authority, and has taken the diverse form of audio, film, video, photography and installation. The themes in Åsdam?s work can be seen through four categories; ?Speech?, ?Living?, ?Sexualities? and ?Struggle?. These concerns are often related to themes of deviation or crisis and to analysis of space in terms of desire, usage and history. The idiosyncracy of Åsdam?s approach to the cinematic field is created by transposing the resources of the discussions of place and subjectivity and the keen attention to the politics of language from the Fine Arts context into film. Åsdam has been active with exhibitions, publications and broadcast internationally for the last 15 years at i.e. Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London; Venice Biennial; Künsthalle Bern; Istanbul Biennial; Bergen Kunsthall; MACRO, Rome; The Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; Manifesta7; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; P.S.1 MOMA, NYC; FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon and Musee d?Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, among others.

Egress is a narrative set in a gas station in the edgelands of Oslo. The main characters work at the bottom of the oil company hierarchy and are engulfed in the everyday and the dark economic and psychological shadows of their society. Egress is the story of a young woman who deals with her every day work situation with independence and stubbornness in her work and life in the periphery of the city. The film shows relationships between control and independence, about labour, class and work, but it is also a poetic film about a socially insecure edgeland of the city—and about a psychological flipside or cost of the everyday, somewhere near the bottom of the huge economic ladder of the oil industry which secures Norway's stability. Egress' world is a world of social instability and economic insecurity as part of a society undergoing major changes. Egress is shot entirely on "location" in Oslo's Groruddalen, mainly between an apartment complex and a gas station. The film is an experimental fiction built up from documentary material which mixes the environment- and character-based to talk about contemporary society.
Knut Åsdam (1968) is a filmmaker, installation artist and photographer. Åsdam established his international work through the art scene in New York after finishing studies at Wimbledon School of Art (London, 88-89), Goldsmiths College (London, 89-92), Jan van Eyck Akademie (Maastricht, 92-94) and at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program (NYC 94-95). Expressed in diverse forms, the main interest of Åsdam’s work remains a concern for contemporary society and its psychological and material effects, and the toll of every day life; e.g. how individuals constructs and negotiates his or her identity in reaction to the rules and organizations of contemporary society. Åsdam investigates the usage and perception of public urban spaces, including their structures of political power and authority. The themes in Åsdam’s work can be thought of relating to four essential categories; ‘Speech’, ‘Living’, ‘Sexualities’ and ‘Struggle’. These concerns often relate to themes of dissidence and to analysis of space in terms of desire, usage and history. The idiosyncrasy of Åsdam’s approach to the cinematic field is created by transposing the resources of spatial and place-oriented discourses from the Fine Arts context into film. Furthermore, he uses a plotless narrative and an oscillation between documentary and fictional narrative elements in the films. Åsdam´s work has been shown widely at i.e. Tate Modern; Bergen Kunsthall; Tate Britain; Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam; Venice Biennial; Kunsthalle Bern; Istanbul Biennial; FRAC Bourgogne; MACRO, Rome; Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; Manifesta7; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; P.S.1 MOMA, NYC: and Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, among others.

"Finally" traite d'histoire et de violence et explore les limites entre le film narratif et l'histoire. Le film a été filmé dans un contexte historique à Salzbourg en Autriche. Dans "Finally", les trois personnages principaux se battent violemment et répétitivement sans que de causes ne soient données dans la narration. Cette violence semble d'ailleurs être une réaction envers, ou bien une demande de, un lieu qui est aussi bien historique que contemporain. Le film fonctionne plus comme un jeu entre le placement architectural et spatial et le langage utilisé par les protagonistes, plutôt qu'une histoire linéaire.
