THE BICYCLE
screening in presence of the filmmaker



"Susanne is a young single mother who lives a somewhat "carefree" lifestyle. After quitting her job, she finds herself in trouble financially and attempts a minor insurance fraud to make ends meet. Despite its rare view of everyday socialism from a woman's perspective, East German officials were critical of this frank portrayal of a less-than-ideal socialist citizen and turned down all invitations for the film to be screened abroad. In West Germany, however, Evelyn Schmidt's film received much praise for its critical feminist approach. The Bicycle was part of the 2005 Rebels with a Cause: The Cinema of East Germany retrospective, shown at The Museum of Modern Art, New York" - DEFA Film Library

http:// eastgermancinema.com/2011/ 07/05/the-bicycle/

This event is organised by the Raumerweiterungshalle collective and T.V.O.D.

T.V.O.D. is a project from Pauline Recke and Fine Freiberg, which used to be working as a project-space for film screenings, exhibitions and queer subculture from 2011-13 in Manteuffelstr. T.V.O.D. has at the moment no fixed address.

ART KINO #11
screening in collaboration with gsl projekt



The second edition of Art Kino in Berlin is a collaboration with GSL Projekt.

Art Kino #11 is presented as an anti-screening; it's as much about the selection of films as it is about creating opportunities for filmmakers active in Berlin to present their new works in a dialogue with older artworks we like. The program is a selection of contemporary video artworks and films representing different tendencies within the medium.

Alana Lake
Rita Macedo
Doireann O'Malley
Natasja Loutchko
Hanna Bergfors & Kornelia Kugler

More artists to be announced...

GSL Projekt is a collaborative curatorial project that produces exhibitions and events in Berlin and internationally. 

The Art Kino Film Club aims to establish a permanent forum for experimental film and video art in Stockholm and Berlin; to give the art films and their audience a place and a context that they deserve, for further exposure and understanding. Art Kino screenings feature both works that have touched and influenced us over the years as well as newer projects and artistry that we've come across only recently. Works from both the Swedish and international art scene. Art Kino was initiated by the curator Giovanni Naves, culture producer Eric Weber and the artist Virlani Rupini in Sweden, 2007.

Art Kino program # 11, is produced together with the filmmaker Hanna Bergfors.

NAP / GOLDWIENER / DUBAIS TALKS
concert



NAP is Vancouver-based Daniel Rincon, a Colombian-born producer with a background in “guitar-based noise” music and although direct traces of that seem hard to pin down outside of Discogs. By contrast, the project’s Bandcamp page contains two heavily ambient releases, both consistent with its low-key nomen and the roving, lo-fi house excursions of his Uncharted debut for 1080p.
https://panmusick.bandcamp.com/
http://www.secretdecoder.net/blog/2015/07/02/stream-nap-uncharted/

GOLDWIENER is Darrin Wiener, Berlin based analog techno mastermind and one half of World Gang. 
http://www.goldwiener.com/

DUBAIS is the Arabfuturist pop concept super group by trans discipline artist Nadia Buyse. She will be presenting an experimental and musical lecture about the nature of Emotional Imperialism.

ART+RESISTANCE
visual acts, queer interventions & activism


Countering violence through visual activism. Countering sexualized, gendered, and racialized violence. Through audio, visual, and performative activism. Where do political strategies and artistic strategies meet – or collide? How do queer cultural interventions become empowering? How do geopolitical conditions, historical legacies, and personal experiences influence forms of queer cultural activism? How do resistant aesthetics and aesthetic/artistic resistance interact?

An evening with presentations by international artists (8pm) and party with Sky Deep on the decks (11pm).

TWO VIDEOS BY PHILIPP GUFLER
screening in presence of the artist



IMAGINARY MASCULINITY (2012) is an investigation into representations and constructions of masculinity. The artist creates a collage of past and present ideals of masculinity and their transgressions, visualizing the decomposition of supposedly irrefutable gender identities.
PROJECTION ON THE CRISIS (Gauweilereien in Munich) (2014) transfers the spectator into a classical white cube setting, where Gufler presents documents collected from the archive Forum Homosexualität München e.V. in chronological order and complements them with recent works by artist friends. The infamous Peter Gauweiler (former Bavarian State Secretary) and the then Bavarian Minister of Education, Hans Zehetmair, answer the emergence of the AIDS epidemic with the most drastic and shocking proposals. Gufler opposes these homophobic resentments with the emancipatory battle cries of Munich’s gay and lesbian movement and thus draws an oscillating image of Munich and at the same time German history.

Philipp Gufler is an artist based in Munich.

IHRA LILL:
HOW TO MAKE THE MOVIE OF YOUR DREAMS
screening in presence of the artist



This is the director, or "The creator of it all," as she would call herself on a good day. This interview was held on a good day. She was not sober or in the most focused of states, but she was happy and having unusually high good feelings about the progress of this project. She has been enthusiastic about her projects in the past. But this time it felt different. She has made many movies, all with an idea of spreading joy and insight, not taking in account the involuntarily narrow target audience. Up until now she has made about 67 video works, depending on your definition of the terms “made” and “works”.

The story: At some key moments we will know more than our main character does. He is suffering from selective memory loss. We have to assume that he knows himself best, but right now everything is a painful blur to him. As long as Lill Apocalypse is refusing to acknowledge what happens, we can`t really know for sure. He is not to be trusted, we can only follow him into disaster, revelations or nothingness. He is going to need help. That sounds easy enough, but we have to consider what kind of person we're dealing with.

- So you’re making a movie about making a movie before you have the idea for what the movie is?
- Yeah. That’s the plan. 

http://www.ihralill.com/

The screening will be followed by a conversation between Ihra Lill and Mysti who we welcomed last year with her lecture performance "Master's Tool: Is Unpaid Labor Feminist Practice?"

CARY CRONENWETT:PEACE OF MIND
screening in presence of the artist



PEACE OF MIND documents the life of American artist, Flo McGarrell, prior to his untimely death in the earthquake that struck Haiti in January of 2010. Through interviews, local artists discuss McGarrell's impact on the community and the small queer movement that was instigated around the FOSAJ Art Center in Jacmel where he worked.
The director, Cary Cronenwett, was a collaborative partner of McGarrell’s, and through making Peace of Mind, he processes his own grief and copes with the absence of a friend. Prior to the tragedy, Cronenwett and McGarrell were developing a film based on the novel, KATHY GOES TO HAITI, by Kathy Acker. Shot only weeks before McGarrell’s death, with Zackary Drucker playing Kathy Acker, the footage from the unfinished project blurs the line between fiction and documentary.
