Directed by Melissa Dullius & Gustavo Jahn

“The winter reigns as the Traveler crosses by feet an ancient landscape. In this place there’s also another presence, someone who’s very similar to the Traveler. Does the Traveler realise this figure that cohabits the same space as him? Is the other a guardian angel or a devil?”

In the traveler´s heart, was shot last winter in Lithuania, during an artist residency at the Nida Art Colony. The film was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius with support of Goethe Institut Vilnius and took part at the group exhibition Ritual Room in April 2013.
In the traveler´s heart received recently an Honourable Mention of the Jury at Festival de Cinema de Santa Maria da Feira in Portugal and was screened at the Onde section of the Torino Film Festival in Italy.

Kuhle Wampe Revisited

Kuhle Wampe Revisited

Audio Visual Research Workshop in Berlin – “Kuhle Wampe Revisited”
With the New Yorker Collective Red Channels

How is it possible to invent new forms of solidarity in times of imposed capitalist absurdity? How can we define new spaces of struggle against the suffering of budget cuts, mass unemployment and nationalist threat? And not what is to be done, but how is it to be done?

“Kuhle Wampe, or Who Owns The World” was a communist avant-garde cinema project conceived in the Berlin summer of 1932, under an atmosphere of no money, no time, and extreme political oppression. Immediately censored after its release by both the German state and the Soviet Union, Kuhle Wampe explores the tension between the petite bourgeoisie family and the principle of collective solidarity.
We hope to facilitate a collective response to the film, open to all.
Using video as our primary means of documentation, we invite everybody to collaborate with us on this research project, which is open to any media or practice.

We want to reimagine, retrace, remix, reenact, and reload Kuhle Wampe.
 We want to film, perform, intervene, interrogate, walk, bike and sing Kuhle Wampe.
We want to create a cinematic compilation of our collective responses to Kuhle Wampe.

Free. Bring equipment if you have it.
 Languages: German, English, Denglish.

Das STATTBAD Wedding und LaborBerlin e.V. laden ein zu DIFFRAKTION.

Vom 15. bis 19. Februar werden unter diesen Titel Filminstallationen im Rahmen einer Ausstellung, sowie Filme und Filmperformances präsentiert.
Ein Jahr nach der Eröffnung der neuen Räume im Stattbad Wedding öffnet LaborBerlin die Türen seines Zuhauses und zeigt Arbeiten seiner Mitglieder, von Freunden des Labors und assoziierten Filmlaboren.

DIFFRAKTION bezeichnet die Ablenkung von Lichtstrahlen und die Veränderung der Wellenform des Lichts an einem Hindernis. Die technisch-ästhetische Klammer der gezeigten Arbeiten bilden die Verwendung und Bearbeitung von analogem Filmmaterial und daran anschließend Fragen nach der Bedeutung und dem Wert der Materialität sowie nach den Modi unabhängiger und kollektiver Arbeit mit dem analogen Bild. Film ist, im Gegensatz zu digitalen Bildmedien, immer noch der am längsten haltbare Bildträger, und seine künstlerische Verwendung stellt gewissermaßen eine Antithese zur Arbeit mit Video dar: Das Arbeiten mit Film abseits kommerzieller Strukturen erfordert sowohl eine besondere Ökonomie im Umgang mit dem Material als auch die Bereitschaft zur Zusammenarbeit und zum Austausch von Wissen.

LaborBerlin e.V. ist ein unabhängiges nichtkommerzielles Filmlabor, das für alle offen ist, die an selbstorganisierten Initiativen und speziell an analoger Filmpraxis interessiert sind. Als Kollektiv dient LaborBerlin dem Austausch von Ideen und Erfahrungen rund um die Arbeit mit Film.
