Transmission Video Art Festival is an independently organized annual festival. The aim of the festival is to convey contemporary positions of different media and to bring artists from different cities together through cooperation. Each year, the festival’s elements are individually arranged and can include an exhibition, performances, readings, concerts, workshops and a video art festival. The aim of the Festival is to give an insight into the tremendous diversity of contemporary time-based art production around the world.

Poor People Relax Me

Poor People Relax Me
Mexico/Germany (2017)
40 min. English with Deutsch UT

A performative documentation of Clara Winter’s process of spending film funds as she attempts to make a site specific project in Mexico without falling into the cliches of poverty-porn and neocolonial views on developing countries and foreign cultures.

Throughout the film, she is confronted with her own privilege, superficiality and the banality of her own project.

There will be plenty of time after the screening for filmmakers and audience to engage in discussion about the ethics of representation, aesthetic exploitation and the (perceived) need to be more transparent about art’s means of production and display.

Learning by Earning

A video programme for Athens and Kassel
Curated by Artemis Potamianou (Athens) and Bjørn Melhus (Kassel)
Total running time: 73 min.

learning by earning presents 9 different approaches by artists from Kassel and Athens to frame the diverse European realities in times of crisis, migration, precarious economies, cultural colonization and gentrification. According to these questions learning by earning stands under the image of a dodo (contrary to the d14 owl), a once existing flightless bird on Mauritius, which was eradicated by colonization.

Artists: Nicos Samaras, Clara Winter, Kostas Economou, Jan Peters, Yiannis Grigoriadis, Bjørn Melhus, Artemis Potamianou, Kerstin Honeit, Yiannis Melanitis

Eugeny Yufit

Screening: Eugeny Yufit

Eugeny Yufit. Necrorealism. The Beginning.
Introduced by Olesya Turkina

The radical movement Necrorealism emerged in Leningrad in the early 1980th at the height of stagnation period. It was born by the social revolt, the love of absurdism and forensic medicine books of reference. In the early 1980s the father of the movement, Eugeny Yufit, fixated the imitation of psychopathic behavior on the 16mm film, performed with the group of his associates guided by him — meaningless fights in suburbs and commuter rail, beating a mannequin in gateway of forsaken house. He invented zombi make-up portraying his friends in black-and-white series of staged photos. Deviant collective actions, initiated by Yufit, were compared at that time with the punk movement as well as with the liberating energy of Medieval carnival described by Mikhail Bakhtin. Yufit did not like any of those comparisons. He preferred personally invented necrorealist triad: dullness, impudence and maturity. In 1984 Yufit founded one of the first independent film studious in the USSR — Mzhalalafilm. In 1989 he was invited in experimental workshop of Alexander Sokurov at Lenfilm studio. Since 1989 Yufit made seven full-length 35mm films along with series of black and white photos and pictures. His films revise social-technological utopias, which were born in 1920-s and 1960-s. His protagonists were excluded from the social order. They were forced to roam around outskirts of big cities. Neither living, nor dead they wander around the remnants of worldwide capitalistic ideology that enslaves human beings no less than totalitarian regimes. Yufit died in December, 2016. This screening is a tribue to his memory.

Short Avant-Garde films made by Eugeny Yufit will be represented by Olesya Turkina, Head of Curatorial Studies MA program at the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences, St. Petersburg State University, Senior Research Fellow of Contemporary Art Department, The State Russian Museum.

Perform Interdependency

Perform Interdependency in Kassel
Public Presentation

Perform Interdependency is a co-operation between Kunsthochschule Kassel (School of Art and Design Kassel), the Athens School of Fine Arts and the BA Arts & Media at Zurich University of the Arts. Presentations a.o. are at KMMN/Interim, in front of KMMN and Kulturbahnhof, at the Weinbergbunker, and the Kunsthochschule.

Interdependency means: to learn from one another, to take care of each other, to cultivate human exchange and participation; to change perspectives; to be in touch with people, equality,
(self-)authorization, to overcome differences, policies of everyday life, performative strategies, collaboration and transformation. The combination of performativity and interdependency reflects themes being discussed in the art world at the moment. We come into being as subjects by virtue of the norms of sociability and relatedness to others. We want to think about our relationship in a radical way. For us, our connectivity is not specifically a linear process
of development, as it is a process in which we are all relational
and interdependent beings. “We do not simply move ourselves, but are ourselves moved by what is outside us, by others, but also by whatever ‘outside’ resides in us. For instance, we are moved by others in ways that disconcert, displace, and dispossess us” (Judith Butler, Athena Athanasiou).
