attaque(e)r le visible: Corporal Interventions – Berlin Experimental Films from the 80s
Monthly from May to July 2021
Raum für drastische Maßnahmen / Oderstr. 34, 10247 Berlin
curated by Lawinia Rate
Dagie Brundert & Gabriele Kahnert
8 - 13 June 2021
It was love at first sight: Dagie Brundert, Gabriele Kahnert and the Super 8 camera. Their paths crossed around 1987, when Dagie and Gabriele were studying at the HdK, a time when Super 8 was booming, especially in Berlin. A characteristic feature of their films is their length - or rather their brevity. The most extreme examples are not even a minute long [!] Dagie and Gabriele always shot quickly and with little financial effort, but behind each film there is always a great story, for example, an unhappy love, longing or swimming in salad water. With a lot of humor, punk and serenity, they roamed around with their Super 8 camera. As life is, nothing lasts forever. So also Dagie's and Gabriele's ways parted in the 90s. Dagie then turned to animated films and Gabriele continued making Super 8 films before finally switching to photography.
The projection will take place in the basement room. After making an appointment in advance at [email protected], the projection can be visited from June 8 to 13 between 4 and 7 pm.
