The DailyAll Selves Divided

From today's announcement: "37 works by artists, filmmakers, theorists and musicians from 20 different countries comprise this year’s compact and focused Forum Expanded program, taking in exhibitions, film programs, discussions and performances that place an emphasis on aesthetic explorations of the global and individual dimensions of current crises. The program explores the extent to which the radical and avant-garde ideas of the past are still relevant today and seeks to redefine the role of contemporary cinema."

Some of the highlights:

  • Two programs by Harun Farocki and Constanze Ruhm/Angela Melitopoulos look to explore how cinema functions as a historical space for the present and provide insight into the large-scale Living Archive – Archive Work as a Contemporary Artistic and Curatorial Practice project."
  • Avi Mograbi "returns to Berlin as a musician and will be performing with his four-person band."

A second announcement with a full list of participants is forthcoming.
