‘Experiments in Living’ film screening
‘Experiments In Living’ is the Bildwechsel theme for 2009, and of our week long meeting in Glasgow (17th – 23rd September).
Our focus is on artists’ and women’s and queer communities, groups, ways of organising and working and living. The screening this evening includes work submitted following our joint Call for Films with LaD.I.Y.Fest Berlin, as well as work from the Bildwechsel archives.
A Year of Sisterhood – Åsa Elzén and Sonia Hedstrand, Sweden, 2005 (excerpts 18′)
Safe Slut – – a carnival through Valla Torg, Theresa von Hofsten and Therese Kristianson, Sweden, 2009 (6′)
The New Beauty Council presents the documentation of a staged midnight carnival performed by a group of women, challenging the values and social rules maintained by society with their own bodies as a tool and the masquerade as a strategy to move between different identities.
It is an investigation and action dealing with ideas of safety, danger, rape, the body, gender and space.
The group had beforehand met at several occasions to plan the performance and to discuss the potentiality of appropriating space with ones’ own body – if this experience on a personal level could change the meaning of the space and values given to it?
Collaborators: Thérèse Kristiansson & Theresa von Hofsten, Hannah Goldstein, Karin Drake, Maria Breide, Sara Ullman, Emma Lundqvist, Hedvig Nathorst-Böös. And many thanks to Memona Khamara and Line Dalmar for painting our outfits. http://www.newbeautycouncil.org/
