Upcoming LAB with Igor Sevcuk
Wednesday, August 5th, 2020, 8 pm
Location: ABA @ VBK, Schöneberger Ufer 57, 10785 Berlin
We meet in the garden of ABA residency/ house of Verein Berliner Künstler in Berlin Tiergarten. To keep a safe distance, the amount of participants is limited. Please make a reservation: email@example.com
The screening of three video works and subsequent conversations deal with concepts of Sevcuk’s current mapping of a transnational memory: The case of person N.N.
Information to the video works:
notes on landscape, or a land, 14′, 2016
The focus is on a little stage in a widow’s bedroom. The voice-over text derives from George Perec’s 1974 book, Species of Spaces (Espèces d’espaces).
My Frenchness @ the Third Table, 2 x 13′, 2019
The work teases following issues:
– collaboration and resistance during occupation by a foreign power
– confused class position of an art producer (after Rilke’s Notebooks)
– deregulated flex work & idea of political life (after Hannah Arendt)
Gravity – a film about love, 15′, 2005
Reminiscences of a boy climbing the trees are overflown by flight technology. The histories of terror from the sky upon the earthly territories – from bombing campaigns to tourist industries – alternate with the glimpses of an emancipatory shift to existence in space.
