  • OFFoff Cinema: The Works of Keren Cytter

    By on

    The work of the Israelian Keren Cytter focuses on relations, or on the impossibility of relations, as well as the impossibility of authentic film making. Her films constantly reflect on their own creation process, they disenchant, show that the 'magic light' isn't all that magical, but rather a construction - just like relations and sexuality... Cytter never does so with grudge or pessimism, but with playful and humoristic gestures that are touching and convincing. After working and living in Amsterdam and Berlin, she now resides in New York.

  • DIM Cinema: Preuzmimo Benčić (Take Back Benčić)

    By on

    Shot in Rijeka, Croatia, with a cast of local children, this experimental documentary by Vancouver-based artist Althea Thauberger draws upon collective labour and the perspective of youth to tell the story of a defunct worker-managed factory at a time when the future of the building, and the city itself, is in question. By weaving together improvisation with material collected during a six-week occupation of the factory by performers and crew, the film re-imagines the site’s politics, history, and future while simultaneously exploring the relationship between work, art, and play. Followed by a panel and Q & A.

    Please join us afterwards for a reception in the lobby to celebrate the launch of the monograph of the film, published by Musagetes.

  • The Rearview Mirror

    By on

    “I then took another look into the rearview mirror, on my own. And I discovered, somewhat to my surprise, that when you look in the rearview mirror you do not see what has gone passed. You see what is coming. And the rearview mirror is the foreseeable future. It is not the past at all. The title, the phrase “rearview mirror” appears to distort the situation. Most people think of it instinctively from the sound of the phrase, “It must be the past.” In terms of media, of course, the thing that is occupying the foreground in terms of the rearview mirror is nostalgia. Nostalgia is the name of the game in every part of our world today. Nostalgia is not, well it’s a kind of rearview mirror if you like, but it’s also the shape of things to come.” – Marshall McLuhan

  • Balagan presents... APPARITIONS: a double 16mm projection performance by Alex MacKenzie

    By on

    Inspired by early stereo imaging and the clash and collusion of socioeconomic forces, this suite of works seeks to dismantle cinematic codes while foregrounding projector and light as sculpture: a conscious corruption and interference of the apparatus to evoke the unexpected, reshaping representation into the realm of material and space. Using colour gels, masking, lens interference and projector movement in tandem with an exploration of binocular disparity, perspective, patterning and the film surface itself, APPARITIONS explores the transitional space between image and abstraction, nature and culture.

  • Xcèntric: El enigma de lo fotográfico

    By on

    A través de tres películas de géneros y planteamientos muy distantes, este programa refleja la fascinación que ha producido desde sus orígenes la capacidad que tiene la fotografía de hacer visible lo invisible, que ha llevado incluso a asignarle atributos sobrenaturales.

    Teniendo en cuenta los fundamentos de una ontología basada en una creencia inmutable en las imágenes, y en el poder de conversar con lo invisible, el cine extrajo del registro de la fotografía espiritista los elementos de una gramática formal cuyos fenómenos de apariciones y desapariciones en pantalla constituyen los marcadores esenciales de su naturaleza mágica.

  • OFFoff Cinema: Selfieland

    By on

    Visual rhetoric in a post-feminist era.

    The use of selfies on the internet as an answer to the exploitation, sexualisation en objectification of the female body in today's consumer society manifests itself as a new tendency within (post-)feminism. This tendency is situated mainly on the internet and floods social media and blogs with snapshots of self aware teenagers in provocative poses and/or with eccentric looks. However, there is a thin line between the random selfie and the selfie as an activist tool for a feminist discourse, which has caused a lot of criticism and rejection from within the movement itself. Artists such as Katie Cercone, Amalia Ulman, Juno Calypso and Ann Hirsh make the distinction between cheap selfies and the intentional politicized self-recording in an artistic oeuvre.
