Opening: November 9, 2016, 5 pm

in parallel to the art film festival artist films at kino international, we presented complementary artworks at FAHRBEREITSCHAFT. works were selected that either have a direct relationship to film as props or that deal with the technical conditions of filming. examples include the object from markus schinwald’s film for the biennale di venezia (untitled (legs # 8), 2009), a mirror in a cinema-screen format by morgan fisher (the aspect ratio pieces–european standard widescreen 1.66:1, 2004), and the cut-up dracula film by daragh reeves (dracula – tod browning, 2003).

isabell heimerdinger’s works are also closely related to the topic of film, including the video piece in which udo kier is observed while watching paul morrissey’s film andy warhol’s dracula, 1974, in which he also played the main character (i was andy warhol’s dracula, 2000).

karthik pandian and mathias poledna cut up a 35 mm film and handled the individual pictures (frames) like slides: slowed down to an extreme, only one picture could be seen each day and one second of film occupied twenty-four exhibition days (1991, 2010).

the show also presented works that tell stories and chronologically document sequences of actions. an example is rodney graham’s interiors, the berlin studies of jacob and wilhelm grimm, 1992, in which the artist rearranged the furniture in the rooms of the grimm brothers. another is telemistica, 2000, where christian jankowski consults a fortune-teller on italian television about the success of his most recent work of art, which deals precisely with this consultation.

it was, however, not only possible to see closed sequences of actions. many works also posed questions with answers that elude explanation: what story stands behind danh vō’s puzzling photos from vietnam of the 1970s (archive of dr. joseph m. carrier 1962–1973, 2010)? in what collections have christopher williams’s photos of reservoirs in switzerland landed (simon starling, by night the swiss (…) (after christopher williams / after jean-luc godard), 2005)? where do the books that carol bove stacked up come from (tower of the prophet, 2002)? what are the stamps by donald evans about (tropides islands (a series of three stamps), 1977, and sabot – poisonous mushrooms (a series of eight stamps), 1973)? what has happened to the chair frame that wade guyton processed (untitled action sculpture (breuer), 2003)?

stories are concealed behind all these questions, which, to be answered, films must “play in people’s minds.” in order to “see” these films, one requires not only facts, but also fantasy – however, not necessarily the support of hallucinogens, as in the case of johannes wohnseifer’s assembly of the rietveld chair (psilocybin experience, 2000).
