Synopsis

On a weekend in June 1983, in what was deemed a “country outing,” an impressive number of Berlin-based artists went to a small German village to give the local residents a taste of Berlin’s avant-garde art scene. Back in Berlin, the footage was manipulated to produce an “experimental examination.”

Our take

Playful and otherworldly, Peter Tscherkassky’s visual record of an avant-garde experiment put on by a group of Berlin artists erase the undue emphasis on individuality. Instead, the collective are highlighted, as scratched, manipulated Super 8 images transform human figures into enigmatic shadows.
