LOMAA is pleased to present a selection of stunning works by San Francisco-based filmmaker Paul Clipson, displaying his unique vision to transform the everyday into phantasmagoric celluloid landscapes. Hosted in partnership with Forest City Gallery.
The third film program in the series Experimental Ethnography at Cinemateket presents Feminism, Colonialism And Anthropology - three films by Chick Strand (USA, 1931-2009).
Chick Strand's accomplishments as an artist spanned more than three decades. In the early 1960s, with a new anthropology degree in hand, she turned her attention to ethnographic filmmaking. Her early work focused on Meso-American cultures explored through the language of the experimental documentary.
Dobra claims itself as a space of resistance which states itself as a space of resistance that wants to share with the audience a micro-perception, going in the opposite direction of the cliches that large corporate media and mass communication logic impose. Vanishing lines to what Peter Pál Pelbart calls beast life, and what we might call the beast perception. To welcome these smaller perceptions that turn aside the pre-set movements that reject any desire to completeness or whole orders.

The second screening in the serie Experimental Ethnography at Cinemateket presents Urban Gardening And Ecology - film screening and Q&A with the filmmakers Elke Marhöfer (Germany/Cuba) and Mikhail Lylov (Russia).
2016 marks both the 50th anniversary of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) and the 40th anniversary of London Video Arts (LVA) – two predecessor organisations of LUX. To celebrate 50 years of artists’ moving image practice in the UK, LUX has organised a year-long, multi-venue programme of screenings, talks, workshops, publications and other events.
LUX also invited the first-year students of MRes Art: Moving Image, Central Saint Martins, London to contribute to this programme by curating and designing an online exhibition in response to the joint LFMC and LVA anniversary year. While many of the anniversary events have revisited the historical activity and legacy of the LFMC, the students decided to use this opportunity to focus on LVA, acting as a "small yet enthusiastic counterpoint to the core programme by drawing from the wealth of LVA tapes in LUX’s video archive."
Curated by artist and filmmaker Karel Doing, this programme brings together films and videos exploring alternative understandings of reality. Nine filmmakers present works that utilise documentary materials to (re)create personal visions and open viewers’ perceptions to outlandish – political, emotional, or structural – realities, that stimulate free thinking expression.
