  • Making Kin(o)! 自主放映祭 vol. 1

    [ Making Kin(o)! 自主放映祭 vol.1 ]: three weekends of artist film artist-run film festival in Taipei

    Inspired by the concept from Donna Haraway, “Making Kin” is collectively creating, co-producing, and co-supporting kin making sci-fi imagination. Then, how about making kin(o)? How about making a film collective locally in Taiwan? Could making films and micro-cinemas be a co-living proposal besides the personal context, auteurism, and personal experiments? How about crossing the borders and making kins through making kino(s)?

    Featuring works from participants of Image Forum, members of artist-run film labs Black Hole Collective Film Lab and Filmwerkplaats, as well as the local Taiwanese artists. This screening series, self-organized by the filmmakers (@ReaRflex), will take place in an artist-run space, THE HALL. Through the DIY events, we hope to create a space for dialogues, new possibilities, and chances for collaborations. 

    Date: Jan 24th, Jan 30th, and Feb 6th 2021
    Venue: THE HALL (Taiwan, Taipei, Da’an District, Da'an Road, Section 1st)

  • Responsive Eye

    Responsive Eye is a multimedia exhibition in three parts by Brooklyn artist, Peter Burr, which examines the ways we endure contemporary life in the grid.  Drawing upon the history of minimalist painting and op-art, the works in this show explore the limits of human perception by staging a series of optical illusions, which highlight the visceral intensities and distorting occlusions that puncture our awareness. Through the dissonant juxtaposition of artificial human bodies and technologically driven abstractions, a portrait emerges of an anxious, divided society, pushing at the boundaries of our teetering attention.
