DECODING The Mysteries of Antarctica by Karin Ferrari / 11:27 min / 2017

The short experimental docu-fiction ‘DECODING The Mysteries of Antarctica (THE WHOLE TRUTH)’ by Karin Ferrari claims to reveal the secret meaning of the symbolic and visual representations of Antarctica.

Déploiements (Deployments) by Stéphanie Lagarde / 16:14 min / 2018

‘Déploiements’ deals with the practice of control, both physically and symbolically. The video draws a parallel between two types of simulation: a team of fighter pilots mentally preparing for an air show, and a piece of software that simulates the behaviour of a crowd of protesters. Power is presented as a game of being seen and being invisible.

Beasts Of No Nation by Krzysztof Honowski / 09:28 min / 2019

An essay film about crowds, nationalism, and the loneliness of rollercoasters. Born in London to Polish immigrants and now living in Germany, Krzysztof Honowski is very confused by what is happening right now in the two countries that he comes from. Examining the roots of his own political disappointment Honowski, together with the German actress Laura Sundermann, attempts to create a narrative that “speaks for a generation”.

ON DEMAND by Eugenia Lim / 14:00 min / 2019

Five workers of the gig economy (‘independent contractors’ for companies such as Uber, Airtasker and Foodora) answered the artist’s call out for ‘worker–performer’ collaborators. The worker–performers have diverse backgrounds: a family history of union and labour politics; a privileged upbringing in Pakistan; a degree in psychology; volunteer work with asylum seekers; a member of a death metal band; and artistic practice in photography and writing. Each worker–performer was interviewed by the artist, and their words and experiences appear in edited form in the work’s voiceover, as do the worker–performers themselves in the video. Lim paid each worker–performer the Australian Miscellaneous Award 2010 rate plus a provision for superannuation for their time – a gesture towards fair work conditions not generally a guarantee for gig workers and independent artists alike.

Supreme by Maud Craigie / 07:29 min / 2016

YouTube videos show how to spot fake Supreme branding. Supreme enthusiasts talk about the notion of a ‘good fake’ and the difference between a manufacturing fault and a replica.

Reality Fragment 160921 by Qigemu (April Lin 林森 and Jasmine Lin) / 14:02 min / 2018

‘Reality Fragment 160921’ follows two people in their process of reality-curation, as they create their own spaces against and via understandings of distance, as they go through the motions of growing themselves by growing their universes. We witness not only their movements, but also partake in the thoughts of two witnesses and how by seeing these two people, worlds are merged. In turn, we ask you, a viewer of this film and thus also a witness, to pay attention to your own movements of perception and reflect around the ways in which you build your own world. Who have you merged your world with, and what does that mean for the subjective truths you tend to?

Top Down Memory by Daniel Theiler / 12:20 min / 2021

The work deals with the manipulation of history in the context of the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace (“Humboldtforum”). Starting from the confusions surrounding an alledged proclamation of a socialist republic from one of its balconies in 1918, the film examines other political events that occurred on balconies. Reenactments of iconic political and cultural events on the original balcony raise questions about authenticity and manipulation. Who is writing our history? How do we deal with our past? How does collective memory work? The balcony is the central motive of the work, representing hierarchies and power politics.
