Debatable Screenings: A curated series of global contemporary video

Thursday, July 21 & 28, 7–9 pm
 Los Angeles Times Media Center
 Art Center College of Design

Single-channel video constitutes a prime vehicle for the widespread dissemination of discourse and critique. Its rapid availability through the Internet, as well as its low-cost infrastructural requirements enables exceptional possibilities for establishing networks of collaboration and transnational dialogue.

Debatable Screenings is a series of video programs organized by different curators from around the globe, considering the potentiality of collective agency, artistic and curatorial discourse, and intercultural dialogue. The interaction between these programs creates a stage for debate, where the nuances of the concept of screening are explored against the light of the individual discourse of artists and filmmakers.

In its inaugural cycle, Debatable Screenings features works by Doplgenger, Driant Zenelli, Igor Bošnjak, Endri Dani, Ibro Hasanović, Katarina Zdjelar, Lana Čmajčanin, Mladen Miljanović, Olson Lamaj, Saša Tkačenko, Siniša Ilić & Tina Gverović, Buen Calubayan, Raquel Friera, Lyra Garcellano & W. Don Flores, Elaine W. Ho & Lucio Castro, Mario Santamaria, Julia Sarisetiati, Christian Tablazon, Mahardika Yudha, Claudia Joskowicz, Laura Huertas Millán, Juan Manuel Echavarría, Carlos Guzman, and Felipe Steinberg.

Please join us at the Los Angeles Times Auditorium at Art Center on Thursday, July 21 for a presentation and talk with curators Maja Ciric and David Ayala-Alfonso, and the first screening program, “Lend Me Your Sofness”, curated by Renan Laru-An. Debatable Screenings will close on Thursday, July 28 with two more programs: “Potentials Within”, curated by Maja Ciric and “A Pilgrimage to the Ruins of the Future”, curated by David Ayala-Alfonso.

Debatable Screenings is possible thanks to the kind support of the Humanities and Sciences Department of Art Center College of Design.

This year Kurator Rex will delight us with “Psychic Response Strategy”, his most recent selection of video art which reunites fifty seven works of forty colombian visual artist and filmmakers from distinct generations and trajectories.

Psychic Response Strategy is a selection of video art that arises from the expectation raised by the probability of accessing a special category, a social welfare state called “Post-conflict”.

The VIDEOART PROGRAM will be screened continuously during the duration of the festival in a specially adapted exhibition space.

Faced with the sensitivity that is required to process a complex and massive event like the one announcing the post-conflict in Colombia, the proposed program of video art, which consists of a compilation of audiovisual projects of Colombian artists from different generations, not only presents a social memory or sequences of fiction, but also constitutes true psychic states that, through metaphors, become valuable documents of a social and human conflict.

In the first instance, video art is a residual material from psychic processes of the spectator, a spectator who we will later call artist. In the middle of the conflict, the artist is a spectator or an actor so fortunate, that he has had time on his hands, time to confront historical and social documents, to record, to appropriate them and set a personal document out of these, a direct and intimate response which emerges as an imperative need expressed by deliberate and experimental actions, as staging and video editing or montage.

In January this year the Government of Colombia announced the initial investment of 470 million dollars in the implementation of the first phase of the post-conflict. This phase has been called “Rapid Response Strategy” and would be implemented by the recently created “Ministry of Post-Conflict”.

We are used to hear statements from military and political language in the news, such as: “Governments should take charge of a -quick response- facing global threats of increasing terrorism and the spreading of the crisis” or “NATO will increase its -Rapid Response Force- up to 40,000 people”. Nevertheless, within the framework of this trascendent, collective event, the function of time expressions like: “Post”-conflict and “Rapid” Response cannot only be assumed as a part of a deep and urgent need to enter a new social state, but, above all in a new psychic state. Perhaps it could offers the possibility of a much less conventional peace than we usually see in the news.

Sete países, inúmeras poéticas

por: Associação Cultural Videobrasil

Dezesseis nomes de América Latina e Caribe revelam uma diversidade artística proporcionalmente inversa à variedade de idiomas

São oito países – Argentina, Chile, Colômbia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, México e Peru – e que, à exceção de Jamaica, falam um mesmo idioma. A representação da América Latina e do Caribe no 18º Festival de Arte Contemporânea Sesc_Videobrasil, porém, revela uma riqueza de temas, poéticas, procedimentos e estratégias que excede em muito qualquer tentativa de redução. E há alguns pontos de contato, que tanto ressaltam debates comuns quanto associações muito diversas entre ideias.

‘Panormas do sul’ : Muestra competitiva 18º Festival Videobrasil

Sitiado‘, video basado en 41 segundos de la película ‘estado de sitio’ de Costa-Gavras, participa en la muestra competitiva ‘Panoramas do Sul‘, en el 18° Festival Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo Sesc_Videobrasil.

En São Paulo, el Sesc Pompeia acogerá esta edición, ocupando el 2º piso del gimnasio deportivo con un total de 106 obras. Vea la programación completa.

Vientos del sur

Fragmento del registro audiovisual de Bienar 2013: primer encuentro artístico en Santa Cruz, 6ta región, Chile.

Joan Jara afirma en un testimonio sobre la vida y muerte de su esposo Víctor Jara, cantautor chileno asesinado por la dictadura en 1973:

“El movimiento de la canción chilena se había identificado tanto con la ‘Unidad Popular’ y había sido un elemento tan poderoso, emotivo, cohesivo e inspirador, que las autoridades militares consideraron necesario declarar ‘subversivos’ incluso los instrumentos indígenas, cuyo sonido maravilloso había llegado a adquirir tanto sentido e inspiración.”[1].

De visita en el Museo Organológico de Valparaíso, su director Fernando Ramírez Escare, me obsequia este instrumento musical en 2012. Se trata ,según sus palabras, de un ‘choto’ y debe su nombre al árbol del cual proviene la madera con la que se ha fabricado. Investigando encuentro que se trata de un instrumento andino también conocido como ‘Palahuito’. Según instrucciones de Fernando y Sole quien es su pareja, para obtener un sonido es preciso poner los labios como si se fuera a dar un beso y posteriormente ubicar la boca sobre la madera. Fernando me comenta que comenzó su colección de instrumentos musicales, cuando en la década del setenta muchos de ellos fueron prohibidos por la dictadura.

Vientos del sur’ es una cita a mi historia en el Museo Organológico de Valparaíso. Igualmente refiere a la historia de los instrumentos andinos en territorio Chileno. Los labios buscan el sonido mientras el viento sopla desde el sur.

Prácticas del vacío – trailer

Prácticas del vacío

Vinculando la Arquitectura, la Memoria y el Cuerpo, el proyecto articula experiencias en las que el sujeto, opera desde su deseo para abrir la dimensión sensible del espacio. El grupo inicia su estudio a partir del segundo de semestre de 2009 y concentra su investigación en una casa abandonada que esta próxima a demolerse.

Los diálogos que las distintas aproximaciones han generado en el proyecto apelan a la naturaleza sensible del lugar, posibilitando la emergencia de su voz. Estan vinculados plasticamente a partir de intervenciones directas sobre el espacio, con materiales propios del lugar. Performances y acciones orientadas a afectar la substancia de la casa en procura de su sanación. Investigación desde la etnografia, la historiografia y el urbanismo. Procesos de clasificación y recuperación de archivo audiovisual (de un material que reposaba en su interior), para extraer imágenes que serán proyectadas nuevamente, en procesos de análisis crítico y resignificación de la memoria.
