Double Feature

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.

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. 

UPCOMING: LILI REYNAUD-DEWAR

The cinematographic work of artist Lili Reynaud-Dewar continually revolves around the concepts of cultural, social and emotional identity. Stories, myths and symbols are as much the subject of her works as they are tools of her artistic exploration.

GERY GEORGIEVA

Gery Georgieva’s films rely on a performative self-presentation. Often she interweaves specific types of women in a hallucinatory way – the Pop diva, the artist, the tradition-conscious country girl – in order to question constructs of gender, taste and identity.

HOLLY ZAUSNER

American artist Holly Zausner has created a figure as an alter ego who then accompanies her in her work. In her film “Unsettled Matter” (2015), Zausner has created a dystopian cinematographic version of Manhattan and roams through the otherwise lively city.
