9 March, 7 p.m.
corporal interventions – Berlin Experimental Films from the 80s
Compilation selected by Helga Fanderl 

A Super 8 projector in the middle of the audience and its quiet rattle are a characteristic of the screenings of Helga Fanderl’s films. She usually compiles her screening programmes, which she calls “compilations”, herself, and she also operates the projector. Fanderl actually wanted to become a poet. By chance, she attended Urs Breitenstein’s Super 8 film course in the early 1980s. Filming has remained with her ever since. Later she studied with Peter Kubelka and Robert Breer, where she became acquainted with experimental film. Helga Fanderl’s films are poems. Instead of using a pen, Fanderl writes poetry with her camera. She “cuts” her films within the camera, and never reworks them. Either the film succeeds or it will not be shown.

After the projection there will be a q&a with the artist.
Screening on Super 8, silent

monthly at

Raum für drastische Maßnahmen

Oderstr. 34, 10247 Berlin-Friedrichshain

curated by Lawinia Rate 

attaque(e)r le visible is an experimental film platform for projections, meetings, talks, book presentations and lectures. Older experimental films as well as the most recent developments of the genre find a place here. attaque(e)r le visible is dedicated to films which perturb the consistency and illusionism of the classical film by consciously referring to the technical embeddedness of the film, its incoherence and materiality. The works on display are marked by refusing stereotypical images and linear narration, their critical position towards the co-world, normative visibilities, forms and bodies. In short, it is about films which do not trust the self-evident, and for which the word ’normally‘ does not exist.

attaque(e)r le visible sees itself as a platform for experimental film that not only shows films but also contextualises and historicises them. For this purpose, on the one hand, we publish brochures with materials from the time when the films were made. On the other hand, attaque(e)r le visible counteracts the canon with the means of oral history by recording video interviews with the film makers and making them freely available on the website

After stops in Paris, Kassel and Cologne, attaque(e)r le visible now continues in Berlin in collaboration with the Raum für drastische Maßnahmen. The series consists of two parts, corporal interventions and aVideofest. The monthly film programme corporal interventions looks back at the experimental film history of the 70s and 80s. TheVideofest focuses current tendencies in experimental film and video.
