swarm viewing garden films, 31st august in hamburg

swarm viewing invite
videos and films want to be seen
                                                         (scroll down for german text)

for the 8500+ titles that stand in the video collection, bildwechsel the active archive has invented a new format: the swarm viewing: films and videos that are related to one another ­ by theme, or approach, or time, or place ­ are presented together yet individually, each one on a small portable player (or the audience can even bring their own computer).

out of our garden film collection, which came about following a call for films in 2012 and had its first screening in may of that year at four corners in london presented by bildwechsel glasgow, we now present films/videos as a swarm viewing event im künstlerhaussootbörn on sunday 31st august, between 1pm and 6pm as part of the exhibition “fliegende gärten” the growing collection is complimented by gems from the bildwechsel collection and some new entries.

videos / filme wollen gesehen werden !!
für den bereits über 8.500 titel umfassenden bestand bei bildwechsel (www.bildwechsel.org) hat sich das aktive archiv ein neues format ausgedacht:
die schwarmsichtung:
themenverwandte künstlerische arbeiten werden gemeinsam aber dennoch jede individuell auf kleinen mobilen abspielgeräten präsentiert. auch das mitbringen eigener computer zur sichtung ist möglich.
nächste gelegenheit eine schwarmsichtung mitzumachen besteht am sonntag, den 31. august, in der zeit von 13 ­ 18 uhr. gezeigt wird ein erweiteres gartenfilmfilmprogramm im künstlerhaus sootbörn http://www.kuenstlerhaus-sootboern.de/1.htm im rahmen der ausstellung “fliegende gärten”.
auch gut zu wissen:
die wachsende gartenfilmsammlung hat ihren urspung in einem call for films ­ betreut durch bildwechsel glasgow ­ und fand ihre erste präsentation im mai 2012 in london bei fourcorners.

We are looking for video letters and postcards

How you are doing and what’s going on?

We’d love to hear from you!

It might be about what life is like for you right now, being a queer / artist / activist / cultural worker / renegade / adventurer / thinker and doer, about the things you find currently relevant. We want to know what’s going on with you and where you’re at. (more…)

Bears amble through the bush… – thicket; the emotional is the infinite plain we graze on… and rub our scent on branches and leaves …
The film tells about the Deleuzian wish of becoming animal, becoming Bear Boy, exploring all kinds of bear butch behaviour.
