Filmtipp: “The Institute”

Doku über das “Jejune Institute” von Jeff Hull in San Francisco: “Their mission is to provoke discovery through visceral experience and pervasive play. As creators of the Jejune Institute, an award-winning immersive narrative experience, Nonchalance was successfully able to re-engineer the way audiences interact with media, the space around them, and each other. Utilizing automated environments, pirate radio broadcasts, guerilla masonry, and lock boxes within lock boxes, Hull’s work represents a warp zone that transports audiences between hyper realized fantasy worlds. Previously as a street artist with an ambition to infuse more variability and play into the civic realm, Jeff created Oaklandish; a decade-strong community arts organization with 20 consecutive “Best of the East Bay” Awards to it’s credit. He is also the founder of inner city playground activities such as the Urban Capture the Flag League, the Lake Merritt Radio Regatta, and the Liberation Drive-In which spawned an international movement of rogue parking lot movie screenings.” Via: Laurence, merci!

* global aCtIVISm (bis 30.3) im ZKM: “Weltweit ist ein neuer Aktivismus zu beobachten, der von BürgerInnen (lat. civis) ausgeht, wie das im Wort activism hervorgehobene CIVIS zeigt. Diese Bewegung ist Folge der Globalisierung, der technischen Entwicklung und der Expansion der Kunst. Seit den 1960er-Jahren hat die Kunst mit Fluxus, Happening, Aktionismus und Performance neue Formen der Partizipation des Publikums hervorgebracht. Die Publikumsbeteiligung in der Kunst ist nun offensichtlich als neue Form der Bürgerbeteiligung in die Sphäre der Politik eingedrungen. Künstlerische und politische Demonstrationen vermischen sich.”

Update: Michel de Broin

“Silent Shouts”, 2008: “This photographic series explore moments captured of passengers in public transport surrounded with unintelligible inscriptions across the windows.”


“Réparations is an interventionist action in Paris in which found, empty plastic bottles were recycled and transformed into rockets.”


“All the parts of a Buick Regal 1986 deemed to be superfluous— engine, suspension, transmission, electrical system—were removed to reduce the vehicle’s weight to a minimum while keeping its appearance. The body was then equipped with a mechanical system made up of four autonomous pairs of pedals, enabling the passengers to form a self-propelling group.”


“Three empty drink cans are observed by a fixed camera. Blown around randomly in a fenced-off urban corner, they clash, disperse and regroup in ever-changing configurations.”


“A protagonist cuts down a lamppost with a chainsaw. The operation lasts several minutes before it tumbles to the ground.”

“Ranging from assemblage to video and photography, Michel de Broin has developed a constantly expanding visual vocabulary. Piece by piece, the objects involved are sometimes universally recognizable but their behaviour defies their functions and uses taken for granted. Crafting new relationships between waste, productivity, risk and consumption, established modes of signification are endangered, yielding retooled technological environments that feed a constant questioning.” Mehr auch hier.
