Works by artists that critically engage with the idea of film to reflect on different cultural, political, social and ideological realities
Works by Cameron Gainer, Ellie Krakow, Vladislav Knezevic, David Maljkovic, Dalibor Martinis, Mario Pfeifer and Sarah Wood. The exhibition rethinks film and cinema as complex cultural forms, critical methodology and social, ideological and technological apparatus. It presents works by artists that critically engage with the idea of film to reflect on different cultural, political, social and ideological realities by works that form relationships to the idea of cinema as social technology and cultural interface. Works in the exhibition represent how contemporary art practices are informed by ways of cinema. Practices that engage with rearrangement of the archive underscoring the importance of the relationship with the past and rereading it. What different artistic positions have in common is the legacy of cinema, a 'cinematic way of thinking' as the mental process shaped by cinema - conceptually, institutionally and ideologically. Curated by Branka Bencic, part of the program at the Pula Film Festival. Vernissage sunday, July 21 8pm.
