Elie Habib (a.k.a) Siska
Bayna Hayakels Studio Baalbeck (In the Ruins of Baalback Studios)
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 47:29 | Liban | 2017
The work is about the ruination of film heritage in Lebanon navigated through the country`s cinematic heydays of the late 60s and early 70s - a period that witnessed a rise of Egyptian producers and directors moving to Lebanon to make films partly due to Nasser`s nationalization of the Egyptian cinema. The story of this film project evolves around one of the biggest production studios in the Arab world, and its lost archive. Located on Charles Helou Boulevard in the East of Beirut, the remains of Studio Baalbeck, a white modernist villa with open doors, broken windows and a garden full of wild plants and pine trees, appear like a lifeless place. But even if this biggest production studio in the Arab region initiated in 1962 had fallen victim to the Lebanese civil war (1975 to 1990), it has nevertheless left behind a treasure of an archive of voice recordings and films that still are famous throughout the entire Arab world, spanning productions from Erbil to Amman, and from Damascus to Cairo. Negligence by the Lebanese authorities has led to mold growing on parts of this archive inside the damp underground warehouses.
Siska`s body of work has two strong features, working with archive and memory through experimental use of analogue filmmaking. His installations have a strong site-specific feature that he usually develops exclusively for the respective location. His pursuit conjures pertinent questions regarding the ruination of Arab cultural heritage and the conflicted relationship between individual rights and the duties of the state, and the ever-illusive gaps between the personal and the collective. His practice usually starts with an intuitive approach, stretching documentary forms towards fictional territories while remaining faithful to the essential questions at sake managing somehow to extract a poetic, almost fairy-tale quality to the narratives he explores. Siska was born as Elie Alexandre Habib in Beirut Lebanon in 1984, graduated from the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts ALBA in Beirut with a master degree in cinema studies and film directing. Now he lives and works between Beirut and Berlin. Siska` work was shown in prominent contemporary art venues and film festivals in New York, Berlin, Beirut, Cologne and Paris.

Shadi Habib Allah
Doc. expérimental | hdcam | couleur | 19:0 | Palestine | 2016
Palestinian contemporary artist and filmmaker Shadi Habib Allah takes us with him on an unlikely journey of discovery – at gunpoint across the Sinai Peninsula, led by Bedouins who will force us across an unmapped terrain whose only signposts are the small stories they tell about the stakes of living, dying, and moving through this mysterious space. Stories, itineraries, directions, and allegiances become as blurred as the status of the Bedouins themselves, who remain unrecognized non citizens of this no man’s land, through which Habib Allah is led – behind the lines of military checkpoints, off the political, economic, and historical grid, a place where these desert outliers quietly continue their lineage with the help of snakes…
Born in Jerusalem, Palestine in 1977, Shadi Habib Allah received a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2003 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2010. His practice ranges from film, sculpture and drawing to installation. While each projects defines its own terms based on research and physical engagement, a common thread is opening up suggestive modes of navigation across circulation networks of people, technologies, objects, images and economy to examine ideas of use and value and the structures that hold them in place. He was twice awarded 2nd Prize for the Young Artist Award from the A.M. Qattan Foundation, and has attended residencies at Cittadelarte, Fondazione Pistoletto in Biella, Italy and Gasworks in London, England. He was nominated for the Luma Award 2011 and was the 2012 recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award. Habib Allah was a part of the fall residency program at Delfina Foundation in London, in October 2016. Habib Allah’s work has been exhibited at the New Museum Triennial (2015); Art Statements, Art Basel 43 (2012); Palestine c/o Venice, Venice Biennale (2009); the Riwaq Biennale, Ramallah (2009); and In Focus, Tate Modern, London (2007), amongst others.

A video is a stream of information, and this moving image relies upon the relationship of static frames which are algorithmically determined.... In the language of video compression, the (I) frames are the reference points between which movement is interpolated. Manual deletion or misplacement of (I) frames results in a video glitch known as a datamosh ‘ the stream of nformation d srupted, d sorgan zed ‘ nterupeted ‘ lost ‘ the ( ) frame removed, rejected ‘ BUT, reclaimed, the (I) frame, the burning bolts of the machine, are at once reasserted in this dance macabre.... (I) FRAME is a mechanical ballet set to the original tempo that characterizes motion on screen at 24 (I) frames a second’.
Karissa Hahn is a visual artist who uses the mechanical devices of cinema to deconstruct former artifacts by physically transforming celluloid - an osmosis of digital manipulation & optical printing; creating a degraded aggregation into resurrection. Her work often employs a series of format transfers to birth digitally-native effects on film and homogenized products which have been referred to as ‘spectra ephemera.’ Karissa currently makes performative short super 8 films, hi8 videos filmed in the break room, and phone calls to corporations. Hahn has shown work around the globe in various micro-cinemas and institutions. Andrew Kim makes many different kinds of films. He is inspired by motion picture technology and how it is/was/and can be used to create meaning. Armed with a wry sense of humor, in conjunction with a concern for formal playfulness, Andrew attempts to transcend the exact mechanics that make movies possible. He is searching for a new kind of knowledge. Andrew`s films have screened at a variety of venues and festivals in the United States and abroad. He lives by the Los Angeles River in Los Angeles, California.

This entire animation is a revolving mechanism, with no beginning or outcome. There`s only an obsession-like force pushing the plot along, which causes regeneration, substitution, disruption/disintegration, construction, circulation and chain reactions to occur between different objects. I take advantage of the language of animation to excavate and erect hidden relations between various objects, while the plotline moves in the direction of nothingness. Changes occur randomly throughout the production process of this work, which is devoid of presuppositions or predefined script. Hence, the work requires me to personally participate in each part of the production, taking the thought variables that continuously spring up throughout this process and record them into the development of the work. Therefore, the process is also a part of the "performance art" involved in making the work.

`Invisible Clothes` is a quasi-sci-fi film about the conversation between a scientist and a fashion stylist on invisible clothes, reflects upon one`s ego constituted by the gaze of others and the subject perceiving that ego. An abundance of metaphors and satire exposes the absurdity of contemporary society, which constantly produces human desire. "The Other holds a secret-the secret of what I am. He makes me be, and thereby he possesses me, and this possession is nothing other than the consciousness of possessing me. (...) the Other steals my being from me." - Jean-Paul Sartre

"Velserbroek" est le nom d'un quartier en périphérie de Haarlem, aux Pays-Bas. Ce quartier est un exemple-type de ce que les néerlandais nomment "Architecture Sociale", important complexe de logements, avec parfois plus de 8000 résidences, et semblables en de nombreux points à une banlieue américaine ordinaire. L'artiste a été frappé par le nombre très faible d'habitants. Tout était quasiment désert. Il a également effacé numériquement toute trace de voiture, vélo ou être humain, ce qui renforce l'aspect de vide et d'étrangeté. Il a choisi le thème des nouvelles habitations néerlandaises comme métaphore du sentiment d'aliénation et du déplacement du concept traditionnel de la maison, familier et pourtant étranger. La vidéo résulte du montage de centaines d'images figées.
Robert Hamilton est un artiste multimédia qui travaille avec la vidéo, le son et la sculpture. Ses premières vidéos datent de 1983, et elles ont été projetées dans de nombreux festivals nationaux et internationaux, remportant plusieures récompenses.

Nature Morte is a film about the Italian painter Georgio Morandi (1890-1964). It shows his images, paintings and photographs in a book. The film juxtaposes the still life paintings made by the artist with striking images drawn from art history and events of the 20th century. It is a reading of Morandi?s work in relation to the unstable history of the last century, termed by the Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm ?the age of extremes?. The film questions the relationship between the artist and the political and artistic news of the time.
Born in 1982 in Tangier, Morocco, Hamza Halloubi Across a wide range of media, including video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Hamza Halloubi?s work shows an interest both in the grammar and semiotics of film and language. These rather theoretical fields are then linked to more subjective issues such as memory and translation. Taking personal experience as a point of departure and filtering it through more abstract concepts, Hamza Halloubi creates inviting visual metaphors. His films develop an aesthetic that tries to merge the internal poetics of human encounters with a rather conceptual approach. His light boxes and installations investigate language?s ability to evoke narratives from fragmented writings. The artist lives and works in Brussels and Tangier.

Born in 1982 in Tangier, Morocco, Hamza Halloubi works across a wide range of media, including video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Exploring the relationship between the individual and the faculty of knowledge, he aims at a representation of alternative ideas of identity and culture by disrupting the dogmas of what is defined and established in culture. He comprises quotes in order to discuss issues such as institution, exile, solitude, and melancholy. Instead of direct perspectives he is interested in gestures and attitudes that upset the established order. Halloubi attended LA CAMBRE Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Bruxelles. He was the subject of a solo exhibition at The Monty "Modest Expectations", Antwerp(2011). Recent important group exhibitions include IMAGINE BEING HERE NOW The 6th Momentum Biennial, Moss, Norway(2011), FotoTageTrier 2010 ?LEBEN elementar?, Trier, Germany(2010), 4th Cairo Video Festival, Goethe Institute, Egypt(2010), BAD MOON RISING 3, Boots Contemporary Art Space, St. Louis, MO, USA (2010), the 1st International Roaming Biennial of Tehran 1st station: Istanbul, Turkey(2008) The artist lives and works in Brussels, Gent and Tangier.

J`ai marché dans la jungle du Brésil, c`était tellement calme que je pouvais seulement entendre le chant de l`oiseau local BEM-TE-VI (BIEN-TE-VOIR) et mon souffle. Puis j`ai vu cinq personnes. J`essayais de continuer à marcher, mais n`importe où que j`aille, ils émergeaient toujours devant moi, encore et encore. Jusqu`au moment où la nuit tombait. BEM-TE-VI a été tourné le 22 août 2017 de 16h55 à 17h12 dans la jungle à l’ouest de Recife, au Brésil. J`ai montré ce qui est arrivé sur mon chemin, la relation avec les cinq personnes et la relation avec moi-même par un plan séquence. Mon corps est l`endroit où le péché peut s`échapper et je veux l`affronter et l`effacer. Cependant, ce n`est pas qu`un cours discontinu, j’ai donné à moi-même et à ces cinq personnes une sorte de destin et j`ai expérimenté ce qui se rapproche de la de limite de ce destin, y compris mon orientation sexuelle. Au cours de ma discontinuité, j`ai découvert que cette limite peut se transformer en expérience et même en expérience libre et c`est une expérience privée. Ces expériences sont basées sur ma croyance religieuse et le pouvoir théologique.
Ses oeuvres sont souvent créées dans différents temps et espaces, lieux et corps. Entre l`implantation et la transformation des symboles, une performance en art vidéo apparemment absurde mais néanmoins émouvante est présentée.

The Moist Cabinet
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 5:8 | Autriche, Allemagne | 2021
THE MOIST CABINET is inspired by the literary genre of climate fiction. Through the voice-over of the film, we encounter poems by Bettina von Arnim and William Shakespeare, each in the original language. Hanakam & Schuller view these poems from the 16th and 19th centuries a prequel to cli-fi. Both poets seem to be in dialogue with each other, yet testify to different attitudes: in Shakespeare, the description of nature serves as a catalyst of sexual desire; in Arnim, the physical encounter with nature triggers a need to preserve the source of erotic experience: “Your silence, nature, do not break.?/?Not on rustling leaf?/?With stylus wake thee.” THE MOIST CABINET thus also describes the influence of literary narratives on the relationships between nature and humans, and the consequential actions.
HANAKAM & SCHULLER is an artist duo living in Vienna. As artists and explorers, Markus Hanakam and Roswitha Schuller redesign the rules of fine arts and create unconventional arrangements and new world designs in videos and objects as well as applied artforms. Their works have been shown in Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; MAK, Vienna; MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles; and the National Art Center in Tokyo. In 2022 they will work with Current Interests on a spatial installation for MAK Garage Top in Los Angeles.

The work contains sounds extracted from the amateur videos filmed during the protests in Belarus in 2020. The videos are mostly very brutal and full of violence and evoke pure and irrational rage and hatred. By cutting off the images and leaving only the sounds I want the viewer/listener to concentrate on what is behind: sounds of the beatings, a dinner in a kitchen with shooting in the background, heavy breathing of those running away, sobbing of a person filming from a balcony, etc. I provide CCTV camera footage from Minsk for my work. Nothing is happening on the screen, it's just a square and people walking by, living normal lives, but the sounds you hear prove that they don't live normal lives anymore. At the same time, this duality reminds us that active protests were totally suppressed. This very view from a CCTV camera looks almost exactly like a view from a prison cell camera - same angle, same grey colours, same texture, and same figures down there. The final part of my work is a footage from a police wagon showing police beating the detained after they were brought to the detention centre.
Born in Belarus in 1986. Studied languages in Belarus, Poland and Germany, which later influenced my artistic practice and let me not be limited to only one cultural context. Different approaches to education in Belarus and Europe gave me a strong push for further personal development. Served mandatory military service in 2009-2010. There I observed the state system of patriarchy and violence, which I would later often refer to in my projects. Studied at the School of contemporary photography Docdocdoc in St. Petersburg, participated in Simon Menner's master class in Minsk, took the online course More than a project, went to residencies organized by ISSP and Sputnik Photos and basically never stopped self-education. In the winter of 2022-2023, I attended the Social Camp course organized by the Goethe Institute to support civil society in Belarus. After the events in Belarus in 2020, I focused on the modern archive and propaganda narratives, and how an authoritarian system creates an alternative reality in the age of the Internet. In 2015 I got polish citizenship, now I have two.

From the Bed & Breakfast Notebooks
Art vidéo | | noir et blanc | 13:46 | Palestine, Royaume-Uni | 2008
When Jerusalem was divided into Israeli West and Jordanian East by the 1948 war, Musrara was among the neighbourhoods split in half by the Armistice Line. Palestinian Arabs who lived on the Israeli controlled side fled or were driven out of their homes from what thereafter became known as West Musrara. After the Six-Day War of 1967, Israel annexed East Jerusalem. The No Man?s Land was dismantled, but the city remained divided, as Palestinians were prevented from returning to their homes. Some of the expropriated Palestinian houses were converted into bed and breakfasts by the Israeli Jews who now occupied them, promising a ?homey atmosphere? for tourists in search of an ?authentic experience of Jerusalem?. It is in one of those guesthouses in West Musrara that the Palestinian artist stayed for thirteen nights in August 2007. The result is a film that has the feel of a crime scene investigation. Stills from the interior of the house, environmental sounds, oral history of Palestinian refugees, video-footage from the artist?s drifts through east and west Musrara, interlace with a diaristic text - opening an intimate space that is at once unsettling and evocative. The wounded city becomes tangible.

These Unruly and Ungovernable Selves
Vidéo expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 6:0 | USA | 2020
La nouvelle œuvre vidéo de Michelle Handelman, "These Unruly and Ungovernable Selves (The Lockdown)", recontextualise des personnages de ses œuvres précédentes dans un essai visuel hypnotique à propos de la transfiguration de l'intériorité pendant les périodes d'isolement et de peur. La vidéo prend la pandémie de Covid comme point de départ, et la filtre à travers les écrits de la théoricienne Jill Casid sur le nécrocène, et les écrits de Walter Benjamin, extraits du "Livre des passages", se glissant entre seuils et limites, considérant que le bioterrorisme n'est peut-être pas seulement la propagation intentionnelle d’un virus, mais peut-être aussi ce qui vit à l'intérieur de nous, notre propre peur, que le capitalisme tardif utilise pour nous détruire. Les personnages de Michelle Handelmann, qui ont tous déjà été confrontés aux questions existentielles de l’appartenance et de la peur dans ses projets "Dorian, a Cinematic Perfume" (2009-2011), "Irma Vep, The Last Breath" (2013-2015), et "Hustlers & Empires" (2018), sont juxtaposés à des images et des textes trouvés pendant la pandémie, pour prendre une nouvelle forme qui nie et lutte contre l’enfermement. Casid écrit: "Qu'aucun d'entre nous ne se repose pendant que nous vivons notre mort. Que nous n'oubliions pas, mais que nous fassions l’effort de tenir compte de ceux qui ne sont pas encore comptés, des crimes de la guerre sans fin dans laquelle nous sommes toujours."

The eighty-year-old actress Libgart Schwarz suddenly loses her language while rehearsing for a film version of the play KASPAR. The play is based on the historic enfant sauvage Kaspar Hauser who assumedly grew up locked in a dark room with no social contacts. Just as it’s protagonist, MY SENTENCE does not fit in. Although in German, it is about universal politics of language and (age) discrimination. Amina Handke’s first feature-length film translates her father’s famous play into cinematic language. The protagonist, originally a young man, is replaced/played by the director’s mother. The play itself questions the rules and violence of language and naturalistic narration. The movie transforms this disobedience into a world full of quotations and references. „What begins as a pure and playful family meta-fiction turns into a surreal, partly nonsensical Babylonian confusion, it’s just that it’s not different languages that are clashing but layers and fragments of the German language, the language of the father. Losing a language becomes an act of resistance against the expected channels of communication, the seriousness of conversation and also the model text. There couldn’t be a truer adaption of the original play than the one taking it apart.“ Patrick Holzapfel, VIENNALE
Amina Handke's work evolves around topics of originality, subjectivity, authorship / audienceship and reception: where does the actual work happen, who produces it, how many versions or realities of it exist and where – in the minds, as documents, as remains? And what is it worth? Her perception of artistic work emphasises the privilege of formulating questions rather than contributing to the universe of commodities. Her practice roots in a wide range of expertise and experience in the fields and intersections of arts, social practice, participative media and a multitude of disciplines: mainly time based (audiovisual, performing and conceptual) arts. It is fueled by the concern to exchange experiences and thoughts with others and to create dialogues about the perception of contradictory, complex constructions of reality. As a curator, she combines her artistic concerns with reflections on working processes and documentary / expanded artistic practices.

La source d?inspiration de ce film est Faces, de John Cassavetes, mais quelque chose de tout à fait original s?y produit. La question "qu?attendez-vous de la vie ?" est mise en scène avec un plaisir de jouer non dissimulé, et de courageuses prises de risque. Dans un espace extrêmement réduit, quatre tempéraments féminins, et leurs attentes érotiques se croisent et circulent autour du "beau marin". Le résultat est une miniature atmosphérique et condensée qui vacille entre l?hystérie et l?auto-dérision. Remake a reçu un premier prix à Oberhausen, dans le cadre de la meilleure contribution à la compétition allemande.

The Belfast Exposed photography archive contains over half a million images produced by community groups, amateur and professional photographers over the past 30 years. It represents a valuable historical document recording political, cultural and social change in Northern Ireland over these 3 decades. Since 2001 Belfast Exposed have been commissioning artists to produce work using this archive as raw material, previous artists include Duncan Campbell and Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin. Three Short Films about Learning is a latest project to be commissioned in this series. The work juxtaposes a selection of images taken from the archive with excerpts from a lecture series outlining theories of social and environmental psychology. The lecture series is Introduction to Psychology by Paul Bloom, made available by Yale University through the free online learning platform Academic Earth. The archive imagery includes marches, masked gunmen at funerals, and paramilitary punishments. The rhythm of the speech varies throughout from carefully measured statements to free flowing thoughts, and the images are timed to mirror this rhythm.

Framing the activities of a group of lighthouse spotters against the uncertain future faced by Irish lighthouses, An Illustrated Guide to Lighthouse Spotting idles with common documentary conventions in a kind of epistemological dilettantism, whereby the diseased triumvirate of rhetorical development, drama and realism is inoculated by mild incoherence, mundanity and idiosyncratic fancy.
Mike Hannon works as an independent artist, and as a freelance documentor for creative sectors and the visual arts. His previous pieces have included both conventional, TV documentary and experimental work.

Musarion adapts the eponymous work by German writer Christoph Martin Wieland and transfers the love story into the present day. Phanias withdrew from the city of Athens to the countryside to leave his old life behind. But one day he encounters his former girlfriend Musarion who tries to bring him back to reason. The art film follows their struggle to find an enlightened form of love that can overcome philosophical and political fanaticism. Musarion was directed by a collective of five young artists and mixes elements of the original text, opera, theatre, video art and narrative film.
