WORKS

PRESS RELEASE

Galerie Tanja Wagner is hosting Vidéothèque from February 4 to March 4. A large single-channel video program will be on view twice daily, featuring a special selection of works by Angelika J. Trojnarski & Filip Jacobson, Anna Steinert, Anna Witt, Annabel Daou, Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca, Elisa Giardina Papa, Kapwani Kiwanga, Laurel Nakadate, Melanie Jame Wolf, Pınar Öğrenci, Radha May, Šejla Kamerić and Ulf Aminde & Christoph Grund.

The entire 3.5 hour video program is told in 4 chapters:

IS THIS HOME ranges from documentary to camp. There are elements of nostalgia, but also critical perspectives on displacement.

WILL YOU REMEMBER tells of histories, some untold, some hidden, some neglected, some historically rather forgotten.

CAN YOU IMAGINE the video works in this chapter deal with coming to terms with the absurdities of our social structures and human condition.

HOW TO PLAY explores performative identities. The chapter reveals that play can be both laboring and liberating.

IS THIS HOME reicht vom Dokumentarfilm bis hin zu camp. Neben nostalgischen Elementen werden auch kritische Perspektiven zum Thema Verdrängung aufgezeigt.

WILL YOU REMEMBER erzählt von Geschichten,  einige von denen bisher noch nicht erzählt, verborgen, vernachlässigt und historisch eher vergessen worden sind.

CAN YOU IMAGINE die Videoarbeiten in diesem Kapitel beschäftigen sich  mit der Auseinandersetzung der gesellschaftlichen Absurditäten sowie mit den Strukturen menschlicher Lebensbedingungen.

HOW TO PLAY erforscht performative Identitäten. Das Kapitel zeigt, dass das Spiel sowohl mühsam als auch beflügelnd sein kann.
