“It will be a screening of film and video works of a certain contemporary art context that correlate in aesthetic approaches such as use of found materials, in a contextual understanding of the essayistic and in a structural reflection of the medium film as such. The screenings of selected works on aesthetics and politics will be framed around discussions about contemporary artistic film-making with the audience. We would like to raise a discussion about a political theory and practice of the moving image and its potential for a critical analysis of representational practices. The following selection of films and videos can be outlined as modes of rehearsing and re-writing. We have a specific interest to examine different methods of appropriating existing found material and certain practices, which question ideological certainty in representations, in their effects and means of production. An awareness for gender-specific and post-colonial power relations is inherent in these works.”
