From October 19th to 24th - 2015 Labor Neunzehn proudly presents the film screening programme Beyond the surface.
International artists have been invited to contribute their films to create different ways of perceiving, transforming, articulating, deconstructing the subtext that triggers the title of this series. The things of the world are not represented by our minds at any given moment, and usually their life is not accessible to us, but hidden, concealed, or withdrawn. Whether we stay, go beyond or beneath, we are moving around the surface, by a language of desire and suppression that turns the interiority inside-out and inflects the outward forms in a moltitude of facets. From the RGB screen in itself to precise political and postcolonial contexts, from war to entertainment, from dream to vision, we come across the surface. A concealing-movement that will be fulfilled optically, and with a self-published catalogue, distributed in occasion of the event.
