How do you show love in a movie? Who is your audience? Why do you think you can use archives? Will there be a song in your movie? Why is there so much fear and what can you do about it?

During the workshop ARCHIVAL LANDSCAPES that took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and online throughout 2023 we collected personal stories and family histories, sounds and images and created films using the method of found footage.

The video installation at Cittipunkt e.V. Berlin features short films by Zulyakhon Abdusattarova, Kseniya Gorbacheva, Amin Hikmatov, Gulnoza Irgasheva, Zoia Melikhova, Julia Polikarpova (polycarpicae), Vika Ryskina, Ester Sheinfeld, Angel Trofimova, Saidamir Ubaidullaev, Yana Xarasho and the documentation of our collective practices. With performative and autofictional approaches the short films deconstruct the archival materials in search for possibilities of care and resistance.

LIBRARY In the library you’re invited to meet our friends from independent cultural institutions from Tashkent that share their histories, programs and documentations. 139 Documentary Center — a Tashkent interdisciplinary public space organized by artists, activists, and researchers engaged in local and regional civil society in Central Asia and its larger neighborhood.
