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.


‘A Thousand Visions: Contemporary Video from Latin America’

by: 1After320

1After320 Film Program: ‘A Thousand Visions: Contemporary Video from Latin America’

Latin America: David Ayala Alfonso

Defining Latin America beyond its geography and through the lens of culture is a challenge. The attempt to cast the denomination of a region have been recurrent for centuries, and has been closely related to independent processes and narratives. The idea of a Latin America lives in different versions that respond to an equivalent number of ends. There is a Latin America that lives in the political discourse of power that is in tension with other versions of the concept, particularly those in the context of cultural expression be it cinema, visual arts or music. Artists have thus developed discourses that call on an approach in presenting an idea of Latin America that is empathetic to what takes place within communities through nodes and networks of global exchange. Works in the selection potray a complex articulation of identities, filiations and oppositions that produce audio-visual discourse in the different countries of the region. Personal stories mingle with international connections and hybridizations, cultural contingencies and political utterances in depictions of contemporary Latin America.

Artists include: Felipe Steinberg, Carlos Motta, Laura Huertas Millan, Regina Parra, Claudia Joskowicz, Amanda Gutierrez, Carlos Guzman and Ana Tomimori.

Seven countries, countless poetics

Sixteen artists from Latin America and the Caribbean reveal an artistic diversity in inverse proportionality to the variety of languages

Eight countries – Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico, and Peru –, all of which, apart from Jamaica, speak the same language. The representation of Latin America and the Caribbean at the 18th Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil, however, reveals a wealth of themes, poetics, procedures, and strategies that far exceeds any reductionist attempts. And there are some points of convergence that highlight both common discussions and very diverse associations of ideas.


A tightly-knit dialogue with film language, for instance, appears in a variety of pieces. This relationship can be explicit, as in the video Sitiado (above), by Colombia’s Carlos Guzmán, in which 41 seconds from the film État de siège, by Costa-Gavras, are used in order to discuss military dictatorships in South America, or in The night of the moon has many hours, by his fellow countryman Mauricio Arango, in which the stories of disappeared political prisoners’ families are restaged.

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.
