Directors Lounge Screening:Doris SchmidprojektionenThursday, 25 September 201421:00Z-BarBergstraße 210115 Berlin-MitteThe artist Doris Schmid, who lives in Berlin, works in very subtle ways with the meaning of images, and against it. She uses the instance of implied narratives, or better saying the seduction of narration as an opportunity to enhance other image qualities such as perceptions of time, augmented spacial illusions, the vanishing of the image, or its apparition. Schmid for this purpose uses layering of video images, and then condenses them by a meticulous editing process.Layers bring different or similar images together and create a multi-dimensional image composition. Initially however, the layers are being created by projecting on 3-dimensional surfaces, instead of digital compositing. These surfaces may be hand-made cut-outs that look like drawings from stills, or they may be moving surfaces, projections from a car or a train onto houses; but they are always closely related to the moving image in some ways. The final videos seem to have an analogue and performative quality, and they thus unsettle the common image perceptions of film.
The artist will be available for Q&A. Curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr.Artist Links:http://www.dorisschmid.net/Links:Directors Loungehttp://www.directorslounge.netDetails:http://www.richfilm.de/currentUpload/Z-Barhttp://www.z-bar.de   °*-*°

Fruit not forbidden: A slice of Directors Lounge during Berlin Art Week
It might be only a tiny taste of what we get up to, the thinnest wedge of the whole juicy Directors Lounge melon, but if you’re swirling around the Berliner Liste contemporary art fair at Postbahnhof any time between now and Sunday (when the curtain drops), make a point of swinging by DL’s booth (G1.34 on the upper floor) for a handful of hypnotizing video moments culled from our store of films and film-ettes. Turkish media-art darling Erdal Inci’s mesmerizing GIFs, first screened publicly in Germany at [DLX]* this year and already drawing attention worldwide, will be there, as well as Korean, Greek, Japanese and Finnish picks (Hye Young Kim, Hara Katsiki, Shinkan Tamaki, Maria Björklund) plus visual conundrums and vortex configurations from DLers Julia Murakami and André Werner and more. Manned by Team DL members and waiting to see you.

Three silent video loops. necessity | community | territory. Based on a closed-circuit installation of a camera interacting with a black and white tv-set. A small piece of overhead sheet with the word necessity, community or territory printed triggers the coressponding mandala.

 
Marking 2014, as the 5th successful consecutive year to hold Yeosu International Art Festival, Yeosu city hopes the hosting of this festival will show the ability to dissolve rapidly developing urbanism of Yeosu and changes of our world communities at large by empathizing with the more intimate and mature Art themes.

(German:)Bernd Lützeler arbeitet als Künstler und Filmemacher sowohl mit analogem Film, als auch mit digitalen Medien. In seinen Arbeiten beschäftigt er sich mit der Ästhetik und Wahrnehmung von Bild und Ton und deren Wechselwirkungen mit Technologie und Gesellschaft. Ein weiterer thematischer Schwerpunkt sind die unterschiedlichen Erscheinungsformen des bewegten Bildes in der indischen Alltagskultur. Diese Themen setzt er nicht nur in linearen Filmprojekten, sondern auch in Film- und Raum-Installationen um. Einige der heute präsentierten Arbeiten sind aus Kollaborationen mit anderen Künstlern hervorgegangen, u.a. mit Kolja Kunt und mit seinem langjährigem Kollegen Eric Wilhelm da Cruz, der darüber hinaus auch einen eigenen Film zeigen wird.

Bernd Lützeler, artist and film enthusiast who works with Super-8 and 35mm, also combines film and video in multi media installation work. In his work he is concerned with sound and image as distinct interfering media and their relations with technology and society. Also, he takes a specific interest in aspects of the audio-visual pop culture of India. He is a strong collaborator in order to create and exhibit. He worked with Kolja Kunt and Eric Wilhelm da Cruz on several projects. Part of the presentation will be an adapted super-8/video live show of “Eternal Showdown”, and a film by his colleague Eric Wilhelm da Cruz.
