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!

Ken De Keyser: “K+D+K”

Blickkontakt mit dem Künstler – ein Projekt des belgischen Konzeptkünstlers Ken De Keyser: “During the last two years De Keyser has been performing on opening nights at galleries and musea. During these performances he got into the role of a documentary filmmaker, observing the crowd, looking for tension between the exhibited work, the viewer and himself as an artist. Herein lies the paradox that characterizes this project: The artist’s need for recognition of a scene he condoms with his artistic output. This interaction, this curious moment when eyes meet lens – reveals the motive of both artist and spectator. De Keyser seeks recognition of his artistry in those of his presence. This results in fragments that balance between objective and subjective perceptions, between registration and authorship. Besides the basis concept – to confront the viewer with itself – this project is more than just institutional critique It is also a study of the social role of the artist, who – in this case – runs a phenomenological campaign for himself. With this campaign, De Keyser claims his space in the scene he portrays and condems his own consistently used marketing.” Via: Mail

* Und es hat Booooooom gemacht: “ARTBOMB is a peaceful art intervention initiated in The Netherlands. The Dutch Government is about to cut 40% of all cultural funding. This will result in the disappearance of a multitude of organizations that excel internationally in their field. This loss will be felt not only by the Dutch public but by the international community. One signal, one moment, one act to show support. You can contribute visual ammunition against the disproportionate cuts to the arts budget. This visible intervention will rise up around the world where people value the arts and want to express their support for artists and cultural organizations.” Via

Filmtipp: Bad Boy Kummer

Der König des Fake-Interviews, Tom Kummer, wird in dem Kinofilm “Bad Boy Kummer” gewürdigt. Die Deutschlandpremiere findet beim DokFest in Kassel statt. “Tom Kummer ist der Star der gefälschten Interviews. Seine Spezialität war Hollywood. Er traf Sharon Stone, Sean Penn oder Bruce Willis zu langen, ernsthaften Gesprächen, die alle erfunden waren. Vier Jahre lang belieferte Kummer seriöse Blätter in Deutschland und der Schweiz, bis er aufflog. Heute arbeitet er als Tennislehrer in Los Angeles. Kummer hat alle über den Tisch gezogen: Die Medien, die Stars, und vielleicht sich selber. Ein Film über das weggeworfene Leben eines grossen Talents. Und über die Frage, was Wahrheit ist.” Via: Mail

Quentin Dupieux alias Mr. Oizo: “Rubber”

Der französische Musiker & Filmemacher Quentin Dupieux alias Mr. Oizo gibt Gummi: Sein neuer Kurzfilm “Rubber” handelt von Robert, einem mörderischen Autoreifen mit übersinnlichen Kräften. “Robert is a tire. An all season tire, by the looks of him. Well worn, but still lively as we realize when Robert literally comes to life, using psychic energy to raise himself upright and take his first tentative rolls towards self determination. He does the sorts of things tires like to do. He rolls. He squishes a bug. He squishes an empty plastic water bottle. And then, when he reaches an obstacle he cannot squish, Robert learns that he can use his psychic energies to make things explode. Bottles. Cans. Bunnies. Crows. He explodes them all. And then Robert falls in love with the beautiful brunette he sees driving through the desert. He follows but theirs is a love not to be and soon Robert’s rage explodes on those around him.” Klingt alles nach einer wilden Mischung aus Quentin Tarantino und dem “Angriff der Killertomaten”. Der Soudtrack ist auf jeden Fall schon mal richtig hörenswert – und kommt natürlich von Mr. Oizo persönlich und Gaspard Augé von Justice. Interview bei ARTE, via/via.
