As part of TRUST, Vester Vov Vov hosts a film programme with contributions by a selection of the exhibiting artists that explores the documentary genre in different ways. In the intersection of fact and fiction, the films focus on collaborative processes, art in public spaces and architecture, as well as political themes such as territorial conflicts and migration.
Programme of the evening:
Angelo Plessas, Eternal Internet Brother/Sisterhood (1-3), 2015
In 2012 the Greek artist and curator Angelo Plessas initiated the project Eternal Internet Brother/Sisterhood. The project takes place annually in different locations around the world inviting artists, authors, curators, designers, and researchers to meet and develop projects and ideas together. This film gives an insight into a creative and artistic symposium exploring the spiritual side of technology by experimenting with Internet culture and online concepts. The meetings take place in historic surroundings where the Internet is usually on stand-by. The different editions of the project have until now been held on the Greek island of Anafi, in the Surrealist garden Las Pozas in Mexico, and by The Dead Sea on the West Bank of Palestine.
Zin Taylor, Put Your Eye in Your Mouth: A Conversational Documentary Recording Martin Kippenberger’s Metro-Net in Dawson City, Yukon, 2007
In the beginning of the 1990s the artist Martin Kippenberger initiated the project Metro-Net based on his visions of a metro system that was to connect the entire world. In collaboration with his close friend, the Austrian architect Reinald Nohal, he began to build a series of sculptures in different cities that represent entrances to this fictional subway. One of these was built in Dawson City, Yukon in 1994 and with departure in the creation and reception of this specific sculpture, Zin Taylor investigates the story about the Metro-Net project through an interview with Reinald Nohal.
