Double Feature

For more than six years, the SCHIRN has served as a forum for national and inter­na­tional film­makers and video artists. Under the heading Double Feature, the latter present a work from their own oeuvre, followed by their favorite film. Already, films and videos by more than 50 guests have been shown. Double Feature is designed as a plat­form for various trends and forms of expres­sion in film and video produc­tion which, with the dawn of digi­ti­za­tion if not before, is now consid­ered an art form in its own right. On the last Wednesday of every month and in conver­sa­tion with the cura­tors Katha­rina Dohm, Matthias Ulrich and guest cura­tors, the invited artists provide exten­sive insight into their creative work, espe­cially their interest in film. In 2019 the audi­ence can look forward to contri­bu­tions from Barateiro, Liv Schulman and Mario Pfeifer, among others.

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: ALEKSANDAR RADAN

Aleksandar Radan’s film pieces are based on modifications of existing computer games, a practice dubbed “modding”. Radan’s focus lies on the avatars he comes across in computer games: He modifies these and combines them with additional, found footage. The Offenbach-born artist is screening his film “This water gives back no image,” which won the prize for the best experimental film at the international Lago Film Fest in 2018

ROSA AIELLO

Literature and engaging with the possibilities of narration play a decisive role in Rosa Aiello’s works, which are a cross between photography, film and performance. Drawing on Patricia Highsmith’s “Little Tales of Misogyny,” Aiello has produced a series of photographs and the film “The Coquette”. In the latter, she presents stereotypical female figures and the power relationships between the sexes, in the process concentrating on the meaning of language.

GERARD BYRNE

Gerard Byrne analyzes the construction of images, how they are conveyed, and how collective moments are created. His pieces are often based on photographic material gleaned from magazines from the 1960s through to the 1980s, which assert a new presence of their own in his filmic and photographic realizations. Byrne’s film “In Our Time” (2017), which was on view at Skulptur Projekte in Munster, evidently does not take place in the current world despite being created using cutting edge film technology.
