Workshop. Madeleine Bernstorff. June 6-10. 2011

Following up our workshop documentary dilemmas from last year this time

i would show and discuss works which tackle some fundamental questions

of film/representation/memory/the position of the artist. Some of the films

i want to show and discuss with you, one could call „ philosophical toys“.


(Also i will give a short presentation of our

collaborative exhibition-project „Iceploitation“

at Tromsø Kunstforeningen, 2010/2011)

Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa: a short Video about Tate Modern

Roee Rosen: Out

Karpo Godina: Gratinated Brain of…

Jumana Abboud: The Diver


[some of the films come from the [ex]-jugoslavian context:

so questions of a non-western avantgarde might be raised:

there is a spezial tradition of working with humour and burlesque

(which might follow up your discussions of the carnivalesque)

with factionalficts and fictionalfacts!]


Collective work:


Für Frauen 1. Kapitel

Columbian 70’s collective work criticizing „miserabilismo“


And… maybe

Robert Smithon: Spiral Jetty

Margit Czenki: Park Fiction

Wendelien van Oldenborgh: Instructions


If you have time we could have some evening screenings

with Agnes Vardas LIONS LOVE etc….

And i want to cook a tarte tatin!
