THE SCHIRN IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED AS A PRECAU­TION

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. 

JOHANNA BRUCKNER

The multimedia work of Johanna Bruckner, born in Austria in 1984, takes up the discourse between society and the individual, which is designed by new technologies, and asks about the influences and dependencies of information and the apparently autonomously operating communication systems. The concrete human body comes to the fore in the performative works and illustrates the conflict between affirmation and resistance, between becoming a machine and posthuman existence. In her new video work she dissolves the bodies into synthetic particles and connects them to space.

UPCOMING. RORY PILGRIM

Rory Pilgrim’s artistic practice challenges the specifics of how we come together, speak with each other, listen to each other and with which we strive for social change by exchanging personal experiences. The artist links music, activism, spirituality, technology and community in collaborations that involve various methods of dialogue. They open up a space in which the meaning of comprehension and reciprocal care are renegotiated.
