Directors Lounge at Quartier 21, Vienna
Greeting cards from reality at the PCFS - Post Colonial Flagship Store.
The “Post Colonial Flagship Store (PCFS)” exhibition project (concept: Sven Kalden and Georg Klein) showcases artworks camouflaged as consumer goods, and engages with a new, surreptitious form of colonialism.
The PCFS just opened at quartier 21, Vienna’s center for contemporary “applied art” in the MuseumsQuartier.European and international artists reference the colonial background of their respective countries and its impact on contemporary life. Dependence, opportunities, hopes, and issues of identity are addressed, as are global investment strategies and the migration of labour.
We participate with a row of three screenings, Greeting cards from reality. 
Part I “Wanderers between the world” presented by Joachim Seinfeld, will be screened October 10th. 7:30pm, free admission.

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.
