Venue: COMO (SKT-Tower, Seoul) and Open Theatre (Tomorrow City Echo Plaza, Incheon)
The programme "Dreaming with Open Eyes" part of "German Inspiration" exhibition shows 19 different positions of artists. Their short films are little poems with a dream-like quality that is freed from our everyday life. They are arranged like the stages of an ambivalent dream: oscillating between an infantile playfulness, the strength of a heterotopic, repetitive architecture, dreamscapes embedded in a romanticized nature or nightmarish states showing the collapse of humanity and science. And each of these very unique moments holds the promise to be watched again, while a dream is lost in its pure linearity after we wake up...
