Women’s Peace Camps film afternoon

Joining in the #Spritof68 season with Cinema Up Collective  Radical Home Cinema, part of the Radical Film Network.

Bildwechsel Glasgow and Fourwalls (previously “women’s”) Housing Coop screened two great women’s peace camp films, at home

Every Woman Here: Remnants from Seneca – peace camp in South Carolina
Carry Greenham Home

We had songsheets and singing in the garden, tea and coffee and beer and food intervals, and the films screened at the very top of the building and at the botttom.

We had our singing workshop in the break between Seneca and Greenham so the audience had an impromptu sing-a-long You Can’t Kill The Spirit! and more fun

Call: Swarm Viewing at Les Complices* in Zurich

Bildwechsel’s next Swarm Viewing will take place at Les Complices* in Zurich.

“Both the winter and the current political situation beg us to feed our
ideas and utopias with old and new impressions. Getting together,
exchanging ideas and letting the mind wander: with films and videos!
For the Swarm Viewing in Zurich, we are selecting both old and new gems
and pearls from the bildwechsel archives… and hopefully jewels
currently slumbering in your mind or on your computer will help fill our
treasure chest of hope. The darkness is long these days and a three
minute video can be quickly produced…”

Deadline for submissions: 14th January 2018

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 (see the submissions) 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.
