Wilfried Agricola de Cologne – House of Tomorrow, 2005, 3:40
The house of tomorrow is the house of one’s identity, it does not need to be a concrete house or building, but represents a secure and protected place where people can stand for what they are and represent, a human being. And this human may have many identities in different fields, the sexual identity represents only one among many others.

video
Predator, 2010, 2:40
2mn40 couleur stéréo 2010 Allemagne – de Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
The video is a metaphoric view on the predator in each of us
telling the everyday life story when youth gangs are attacking other people at lonesome locations without any witnesses. The predator as the victim of the circumstances. While acting as a social being, each of us uses its potential of aggression in order to impose one’s will, and mostly by doing anything to achieve one’s end, no matter how the consequences may look like.
The video is based on three individual video sequences recorded from acting experiences with the performance artists group “The Acting and Noise Company”.

Luksuz Film Festival


Luksus Film Festival Krško/Slovenia – 20/09-26/09 2006
DZMP (Society of allies for soft landing) was founded by a group of young people, who were tired of the apathy of cultural events for youngsters and general insensitivity for distress of other people. We are active in the areas of youth culture, non-formal education, contemporary art, social and humanitarian acts. In the last period we have been giving special attention to projects in the field of media education, film, video and multimedia. We are performing different activities on local, national, and international level with the aim to stimulate active participation of young people through different forms of media.

One of our main activities is our regular Youth TV Magazine, in which youngsters shoot and publish their own different documentaries and TV reportages. These feature different youth projects, cultural events, some young artists and activists. In this way we want to inform other youngsters and the wider population, because themes like these are mostly ignored in “mainstream” media. That’s why it is very important that articles, beside public projections in youth clubs and centres, are shown on TV stations. We support young authors to use different approaches, which differs us from “mainstream” television.

All through the year we organise different courses for youngsters to work in media. These are different weekend workshops and summer camps. Every year we organise a film festival, with the purpose of promoting films of young authors. We encourage the development of activities of this kind with the projections of films by young authors and performing workshops in a network of youth centres and clubs all over Slovenia. We also participate in projects with different organisations from abroad.

We are managing a house DZMP in Krško, where we set up a video studio. Every day we open the doors of the house for young creators from different parts of Slovenia (and abroad). We are pioneers in this field of work in Slovenia, through which we assured ourselves recognition and reputation in the past.

We are also very active in projects with Roma people. Volunteers are visiting Roma villages throughout the year. They carry out different projects for kids and youngsters. In the summer time we organise camps and workshops in some settlements. Lately we have been successfully carrying out some media courses which some Roma youngsters are active in.

Message from Behind a Wall, 2005, 10:00
The segregation wall in Palestine is a fact. In November 2004, an artistic action against the wall ended, taking place at six different places in Palestine where walls were under construction, initiated by Palestine artists by inviting artists from different countries to paint an artistic message on the concrete.
When Agricola de Cologne was in Bethlehem in February 2005, he visited several places where the Israeli were erecting the wall. The part of the wall he was filming, is situated in opposite of the AIDA refugee camp (UN), and was at that time a temporary playground for children. And these children made their own contribution to the huge wall paintings.
“Message from behind a Wall”is transporting different messages, but the main message represents the action of children’s innocence.
The moving picture is a unique document of the day of 17 February 2005. Meanwhile, the construction of the wall in Bethlehem is since long time completed, and the area around the wall does not motivate children to use it further as a playground.


SENEF – Seoul Net & Film Festival 2007

*SENEF – Seoul Net & Film Festival 6/09 – 16/09 2007 Inability

video

The moving picture takes the classical theme of the “nude” in a contemporary interpretation as a psychological condition.
The viewer is confronted with different levels of movements of baring/exposing.
He becomes very quickly aware, that he did not enter a peep-show, but is disturbing intimacy, the process of emptiness. Emptiness in the sense of meditating.
The nude is a metaphor. The Inability of Being Nude becomes the inability of exposing one’s entire internal to other people, including those who are most intimate and this could be the viewer himself. This inability is in the same way protecting as separating.

Bareback – serialDIScharge, 2007, 4:50
The experimental film tells the story of a homeless person, who lost its identity in all the traumatic experiences it was undergoing. Again, Agricola de Cologne uses the form of the allegorical representation for pointing to essential questions of human existence. All people are homeless in on or the other way, most however, suffer from it without being aware of it. The film is a mirror of our time which has lost its roots.
