- Start time: 20:00
- Entrance: 6-10 € (up to your offer)
We are delighted to welcome Giuseppe Boccassini - a filmmaker working with found and archival footage to work a visual language to surreal affect. In a manner that suggests films inner breathing, as if it had a consciousness, or the media dreaming of itself, these images circulate and pulsate in reflection of their own problematic being.
By Boccassini's definition, "film is a phallic conqueror that, folding in on itself, now flaccid deus ex machina, observes itself from the inside like a lysergic membrane that slowly founders between the folds of its own material."
The resulting vision seems to throw our gaze deep inside the medium of moving images, towards extremes of close-up, loudness, or slowness, silence, in unexpected and uncanny meanderings of meaning.
This program will showcase a selection of recent works as well as the German premiere of his brand new film, Debris (2017), which consists of decayed fragments from Instagram, Youtube, video-games, public archives, mostly re-shot with a Mini-DV camera.
