For three years now, every last Monday in the month the SCHIRN has acted as a forum for national and international film and video artists. In dialogue with the SCHIRN curators, international artists offer in-depth insights into their work and, more especially, into their filmic interests. DOUBLE FEATURE was designed as a platform presenting the extremely varied trends and forms of creative expression in the production of art films and for the juxtaposition of familiar and not so familiar positions.
UPCOMING: Monira Al Qadiri
The works by Kuwaiti artist Monira Al Qadiri revolve in particular around questions of gender and identity, around ecological thinking and society’s power discourse within the Middle East. The aesthetic of sadness, influenced by poetry, music and religion, forms a kind of core here.
Rather than presenting the works as objects in an exhibition room, “Double Feature” creates a cinema-like viewing situation that focuses solely on the screen.
Henning Fehr & Philipp Rühr
Henning Fehr & Philipp Rühr describe themselves as filmmakers operating between active participation and passive observation. In their works they represent and explore commercial and cultural behavior, for example, with their juxtaposition of global cultural phenomena such as television, music, tourism and architecture.
Participants to date have included Ed Atkins, Nevin Aladag, Keren Cytter, Luke Fowler, Melanie Gilligan, Heather Phillipson and Anri Sala, for example. In 2016 attendees can look forward to contributions from artists including: Liesel Burisch, Annika Larsson, Liz Magic Laser and Corin Sworn
