October 2020

In the cultural area, the month October is usually the highlight during a season, while in 2004 the Biennale of Electronic Art in Perth is still running, in October 2001 Wilfried was recovering from traumatic effects of the 9/11 terror attacks. It is statiscally proved, that Wilfried was particularly creative and initiative in times of such a break down, as if the break down would prepare the fertile soil on which new creativity can grow. When Wilfrie returned in 2004 from his residency on occasion of the Biennale in Perth/Australia, it was clear to Wilfried, a whole era had come to an end, the post-coma era. he had come to perception, that simultaneously also another era was over, the era of netart. When Wilfried was talking about at that time, nobody believed – he was called to be a nutcase, so Wilfried was thinking, maybe he would be wrong, but he wasn’t, particularly not retrospectively.
Perth had been the 1st long distance travel after the coma, and 2005 was a year of many further long distance travels. October/November 2005, the next hight light came, when Wilfried was invited to attend several events in SouthAamerica – packed in the event project “Impact SA”, when he was attending Sao Paulo (File Electronic Language Festival), also by participating in FILE Symposium, he was visiting Rio de Janeiro, and afterwards Argentina, where he was invited to present his project “Women: Memory of Repression in Argentina”, realised in collaboration with Raquel Partnoy and Anahi Caceres/ArteUna – to be presented in Buenos Aires, Junin, Rosario and Santa Fe, later visiting Uruguay, where he had in Montevideo a presentation of the National Academy of Art and the Goethe Institute. In 2006, Wilfried was again to travel to Argentina for attending Gabriel Otero’s Digital Art Festival in Rosario. . The 365 Diary will feature these events, the presented art contexts and the involved curators and artists in detail. In 2012 and 2013, Wilfried realised in collaboration with Warsaw Jewish Film Festival two events in the framework of A Virtual Memorial Commemorative Interventions (AVMCI), A Virtual Memorial Warsaw 2013, realised at POLIN – Museum for the History of Polish Jews, standing under the Patronage of the European Parliament.
The NMF2020 October edition is honouring especially Antonio Alvarado, an electronic artist and curator from Madrid/Spain. Already soon after 2000, the 1st contacts were established, Antonio participated in several projects Wilfried was realising online – on JavaMuseum, Violence Online Festival of The RRF Project, for instance, and since 2003 Wilfried was participating in numerous events, Antonio was organising in and around Madrid, mostly dedicated to electronic or digital art. Madrid was also the venue of another event – Proyector Video Art Festival. Madrid became one of the cities Wilfried was visiting most.
Another country had become relevant- India. Also in 2000/2001 contacts had been established with Shankar Barua, who started in 2006 his Carnival of e-Creativity which became a forum for presenting Wilfried’s festival programs, and when he discontinued after more than 10 years of successfully organising his annual event, in 2016 a new contact was established in Kolkata with Sudipta Dawn, active for the organisation “CultureMonks” in 2016 he organised the “Momentum” Festival for experimental art, and when after his heavy accident in 2017 Wlfried was about to stop his activities, it was Sudipta’s invitation for a collaboration, which motivated Wilfried to continue, at all, and continue curating, in particular. The most recent collaboration with CultureMonks is scheduled for 15 October at Birla Academy for Art & Culture Kolkata. On occasion of the 151st birthday of Mahatma Gandhi (02 October 1869), Wilfried was invited to prepare a screening program dedicated to the maxims of Gandhi’s acting – Peaceful Protest – Non-violent Resistance – Civil Disobedience – resulting, after releasing an open call call earlier in 2020, a inspiring new film collection on The Wake Up! Memorial. The inspring aspect in this collaboration was the fact, that Wilfried had to prepare always new screening programs based on new topics representing the occasion to start a new initiative. So, this collaboration was very particular and in the sense of curating, challenging so far.

Silvia de Gennaro – Videoartist of the Month October 2020

Concerning videoart, CologneOFF VII – Art & The City was path breaking in 2011, never before had more artists been submitting. Among them Silvia de Gennaro, of Italian origin- following an original artistic approach via animation. For Wilfried as both, an artist and curator, the divers forms of artistic animations had been always of particular interest, because artists like Silvia de Gennaro design their creative environment themselves they are acting in. In many cases, and Silvia de Gennaro belongs to them, they found their own very original multi-leveled language. Wilfried had the chance, that Silvia was regularly submitting new videos, which were inviting Wilfried to plan for Octover 2020 featuring Silvia de Gennaro as a creatrice, by presenting 10 videos from the years 2008 – 2016.
Another feature is pointiing to the collaboration with the Italian curator Maurizio Marco Tozzi, who contributed a selection of Italian videoart in 2017 to The W:OW Project. He is also curator of Over The Real Videoart Festival taking place in 2020 between 30 September and 04 October 2020 in Lucca/Italy – and today, 1 October 2020 the festival is screening the NewMediaFest2020 contribution as a guest program – so there are good reasons to feature this event as WOW Jubilee 2020 X – Italy.
Additionally, the October edition of NMF2020 is featuring CologneOFF VIII – Continental Drift (8th Cologne International Videoart Festival, a selection of still existing neartists and their works and the 7th edition of Soundlab including more than 100 international artists.
One of the new achievements of The New Museum of Networked Art – is representing the new darkroom/cinema space, name ALPHABET – due to the 26 incorporated cinemas each one with an individual programming. Serving until 31 December 2020 as a screening platform for NewMediaFest2020, ALPHABET will promote from 1 January 2021 on the existing artfilm collections of The New Museum of Networked Art by establishing a dynamic screening context for all the divers film collections, completed by artists solos and features of guest curators. ALPHABET started in July 2020 by hosting the online screening of Torrance Art Museum (18 July – 20 september 2020). In October 2020, ALPHABET will be presenting an attractive, unexpected videoart program.

Maurizio Marco Tozzi
@ AND – Artists Network Database
http://and.nmartproject.net/?p=5008

is a curator of contemporary art. He has focused his research on the audiovisual language and the relationship between creativity and new technologies. He has a degree in Cinema and Image Electronics from the University of Pisa (Italy), and a Master in Net Art and Digital Cultures from the Fine Art Academy of Carrara (Italy). He is the founder and director of Over The Real – International Videoart Festival (GAMC Lorenzo Viani – Viareggio and Villa Bertelli Foundation – Forte dei Marmi), and he has curated many exhibitions in important galleries and museums. He regulary takes part in lectures and talks about contemporary art (La Sapienza University Roma, 900 Museum Florence). His last essays are: Gianni Melotti art/tapes/22 (Giunti, 2017) The Italian Video Art (Danilo Montanari, 2016), and Seamless Interaction with Works of Art published in Media Art Towards a New Definition of Arts in the Age of Technology (Gli Ori, 2015). Since 1993 he is a member of the Order of Journalists and worked for various publications.

Curatorial statement:
As a large ship drifted, planet Earth is going towards a destiny everyday more catastrophic. Even Italians artists participating in the project W:OW have come together to launch a strong warning, wishing to awaken through their works the awareness of an essential change. We need an unfailing work that starts from our consciences which Angelica Bergamini (Will you fight or will you dance) encourages us to do, because as Marcantonio Lunardi (The Cage) underscores, we live everyday between existing and non-existing, between living and non-living, between being seen and being invisible. So Michele Manzini (Moving Afrika) ask himself “what is reality?” and he finds it in the South African Townships with an act that might confirm the existence of impossibility. Lino Strangis (A strange earthquake of the mind) invites us to a dreamlike journey to face the intellectual challenges of this age while trying to re-establish its balance, accepting the necessity to reinvent the world. As Paolo Bandinu (No Country) illustrates, we must review the concept of the country, questioning the idea of the border with a new thought, pointing to the freedom of each individual human being. We hope that by watching these videos, people will reconsider their concepts while opening their consciences.

Angelica Bergamini (Italy) – Will you fight or will you dance, 2012, 6:48
Video by Angelica Bergamini, Animation: Stefania Szprengiel, Sound: Gillian Arthur;
…despite all the noises produced by the outside world – it’s still possible
to hear a voice whispering an alternative choice: will you fight or will you dance?
A choice which we face every day, both in our daily life as along the path of self discovery.
While walking aware of our breath, is the connection to our inhale and exhale that reminds us of our being here and now. With the possibility to choose.

Marcantonio Lunardi (Italy) – The Cage, 2016, 5:46
Direction Marcantio Lunardi, photography Ilaria Sabbatini, Sound Tania Giannouli;
Food, water, book, language, beauty, earth, sea, love, warmth, man, woman, desire. What is our cage dividing us from? Is it blocking us? Or is it protecting us? The barbed wire is a simple structure, a cylinder-shaped object deformed by a light twisting, which stretches, in the room, from one point to another.
Every 10 centimetres there is a small lock: its delicate shape breaks the linearity of the barbed wire like a lock gracefully curled. But, far from being delicate, those thorns twirl around life preventing its movements, inducing wounds, suffering and pain.
The barbed wire, thus, marks the border between existing a non-existing, between living and non-living, between being seen and being invisible.
Lunardi has patiently built his cage: it is an iconic, cold and surreal object. He has welded the wire fence to the main structure, he has assembled the frames and the hooks. Wire after wire, pipe after pipe, bolt after bolt he has shaped the catharsis of his nightmares and he transformed his inner obsession in a tangible object. The cage he is alluding to is that in which we live in and which has become more and more tight-fitting. It is a sort of coffin in which life continuously moves from one corner to another, completely alone, perpetually searching for an horizon which is continuously blocked.
One can look outside the cage whenever one wants to, but the perception is always distorted, altered and blocked. Thus, a book becomes a visual vibration confused by the iron locks, the works of art are cut in pieces by the metallic wire. One cannot find a single corner allowing a complete vision. Brushing against the leaves of a tree moved by the breeze or enjoying the touch of a beloved one become impossible enterprises.


Valeria Lo Meo & Michele Manzini (Italy) – Moving Africa, 2016, 5:02

Written and Directed by Valeria Lo Meo and Michele Manzini,
Director of Photography Luciano Perbellini, Editing Valeria Lo Meo, Produced by Bottega di Fotografia pty (LTD) Cape Town;
The word reality is always used in an intimidating way.
We must constantly be worried about “reality”, we must obey “reality” as a kind of constant enslavement without exceptions. We live crushed by the dominating opinion that there exist elements of reality that are binding and conditioning, and that they are so to the point that we cannot imagine even just a small form of action group action that is untouched by this coercion. And so then, does an eventual answer to the question “what is reality?” always have to verify that we cannot speak of “reality” unless we take into account some form of imposition? Is then the image that “reality” gives us never found, discovered, or met, but is simply the reflection of an injunction? Is it then necessary to accept, as though it were one of reason’s laws, that reality demands, in all cases, submission rather than invention?
To work with the expressive form of a documentary means rethinking the idea of describing reality and redefining its structure and the limits, and it also means doing so in a place where the imagery and weight of that reality seems most strong and binding, as in the South African townships. This is an act that might confirm the existence of impossibility, because this is the basic gesture for

Lino Strangis (Italy) – A strange earthquake of the mind, 2016, 6:45
A strange earthquake of the mind is a journey into a dream on the eve of a change: when the earth
trembles, and with it the foundations of thought; the habits of individuals and peoples are
changing, the same people’s presumed ability to define falters things and it is necessary to accept
the responsibility to re-invent the world. A flight of the gaze into the depths of a mind open-theater
on a display of dream-like dimension of an imagined collective intelligence, in a time when a
generation processes the ability to face the challenges intellectuals of his age, and re-establish the
balance.

Paolo Bandinu (Italy) – No Country, 2015, 2:21
Video (Stop motion), mixed media on postcards and flyers by Paolo Bandinu;
The work is composed of a video and a series of postcards cheanged pictorially (25) framed.
Through the recovery of various post-card and flayers. I created a video-collage. The video tries to rebuild through visions from the world, a story, a trip, a path that leads us to a reflection upon the concept of the country. A country seen as planet earth, cities, universes – that calls into question the idea of borders. A thought pointing to the freedom of each individual human.
In a time when the defnition of citizenship is in crisis, we increasingly feel the need to redefne the boundary between public and private spaces, within a dialogue between institutions and citizens.
“From up here the Earth is beautiful , without borders or boundaries”

Birla Academy of Art & Culture Kolkata

Who we are

The Birla Academy of Art & Culture was established in 1967 with the principal objective of fostering the growth of art and culture with emphasis on visual and performing arts. In this time, the Academy has established itself as a centre of cultural, artistic and educational activities.

History

It all started when Sri & Smt B.K. Birla; foremost industrialists of India, had started collecting rare and valuable treasures of art out of their profound love for art & beauty. With a sizeable collection in place, it was decided that such veritable treasure troves of history should be accessible to all. A public Charitable Trust was created in 1962 with a view to collecting, preserving and exhibiting art objects for the public.

For accommodating the proposed institute, the present eleven storied building was completed in 1966 and it was formally inaugurated under the name “Birla Academy of Art & Culture” by Karan Singh in 1967. It is now one of the premier museums and art galleries of the country. It consists of spacious display-halls, necessary for full-fledged cultural centre of modern importance.

Facilities & Activities

The main activities of the Academy consist of :

Collecting, preserving and displaying museum objects
Hosting exhibitions of Indian and International Art objects
Organizing cultural performances
Educational programmes of varied nature

The museum of the Academy has a distinct character of its own and depicts the growth and development of Indian art from 1st century, B.C. till now. The museum houses works by many celebrated contemporary Indian artists as well as few fine specimens of modern western art. The Garden adjacent to the Academy is often used for open air expositions, art-fairs and cultural performances.

In order to unearth hidden and young talent, the Academy organizes All India Annual Exhibitions, one man shows, Group shows and Kala melas at regular intervals. In the field of performing arts, a cultural performance is organized once in a month.

The Academy is not only concerned about India’s glorious artistic past. It also promotes artistic activities and to help artists, the Academy lets out its 2nd and 4th floor Galleries including Auditorium to artists, art societies and cultural groups at a very nominal rent.

The Academy also holds Educational programmes, lectures, seminars, film shows, workshops and art appreciation classes. The Academy maintains an impressive library with a fine and eclectic collection of art books, journals and periodicals for public use.

Achievements & Successes

A distinctive achievement of the Academy has been the presentation of quite a few international exhibitions; of which the most memorable is the show of the outstanding French sculptor Rodin; a landmark exhibition for Calcutta. Other notable exhibits included the works of Henry Moore and the Graphics of Picasso. It has also hosted Russian festival shows, German Expressionist’s graphics, French designs and also American, Chinese and British porcelains.

With the active co-operation of Indian Council for Cultural Relations and the U.S.I.S. legendary American plays such as “Once upon a Mattress” and “Driving Miss Daisy” had been organized for the enjoyment of the people.

On an ending note, the Academy has also been enriched during the last 50 years by the continuous inflow of countless treasures.

Gandhi - PPNRCD


Gandhi! – PPNRCD
PPNRCD – stands for “Peaceful Protest – Nonviolent Resistance – Civil Disobedience”

In short, these three methods are representing the essence of Mahatma Gandhi’s fight for the independence of India from the British Empire (15 August 1947).
During the global conflicts, at his time this was most unusual to propagate nonviolence instead of violence and war which was more popular in the uprising nationalism worldwide.
But Gandhi was successful, however, he was paying a very high price – he was assassinated like his likeminded follower Martin Luther King, while propagating nonviolence and, Nelson Mandela whose nonviolence finally succeeded only after he was sitting for decades in prison.

More than 150 years ago – on 2 October 1869, Mahatma Gandhi was born, he was assassinated on 10 January 1948.

What can Gandhi’s methods tell us today?
They haven’t lost anything of their explosive force, think of the current movements of climate change, social equality etc, when “war” and enforcing conflicts are again an option. There is no politician on Earth who does not speak of war currently!

While Gandhi’s achievements are representing the historical roots for later nonviolent political and social movements, the project would like to spotlight incidents taking place after Gandhi’s death driven by the spirit of non-violence and humanity, think of Martin Luther King’s equal rights movement, the peaceful revolution of the German Re-unification or the liberation from the Apartheit in South Africa, for instance, or current movements of climate change, or all the daily situations when people overcome conflicts via nonviolence.

The Birla Academy of Art & Culture Kolkata is planning between 16 October – 22 November 2020– an exhibition on occasion of the 151st anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

Invited to prepare a screening program of videos for the anniversary exhibition dealing with Gandhi’s maxims in a narrow or wider sense, Wilfried Agricola de Cologne initiated at The Wake Up! Memorial a new commemorative context, based on the new film collection, entitled; Gandhi – PPNRCD – Peaceful Protest – Nonviolent Resistance – Civic Disobedience, consisting of 30 artvideos, and selected 15 videos as a part of the exhibition context.

This screening program is realized in collaboration between The Birla Academy of Art and Culture Kolkata, Culture Monks India, The Best of Kolkata Campus and The Wake Up! Memorial, A Virtual Memorial Foundation, The New Museum of Networked Art and NewMediaFest2020 complemented and accompanied by the screening of the complete film collection @ ALPHABET at The New Museum of Networked Art online between 15 October and 31 December 2020 (end of NewMediaFest2020).

Curated by Parnap Mukherjee

The curator`'s note

from FRIDAY- OCTOBER 16, 2020 (6:30 p.m onwards) to November 22, 2020

Exhibition will be open till November 22 (SUNDAY), 2020
3:00 p.m. – 8:00p.m. (closed on Mondays and from October 22 to 25, 30, 2020 and Diwali)

CURATOR’S NOTE:

“I’m no prophet. My job is making windows where there were once walls.”― Michel Foucault

How do we imagine Gandhi@150 in terms of visual art?

Is it the materiality of the medium? Is it the subject? Is it the spirit of Gandhiji’s words? Is it photo-montage of Gandhi or Gandhian moments in our history of the world? Is it studying him through the works of contemporaries? Is it a visual tribute? Is it folk art and it’s evolution? Is it artistic understanding of satyagraha? Is it an archival spread of documents and manuscripts?

All these and more.

What is Swaraj?

Let’s examine an extract from Gandhiji’s Hind Swaraj:

Swaraj is when we learn to rule ourselves. It is therefore, in the palm of our hands. Do not consider this Swaraj to be just a dream. There is no idea of sitting still. The Swaraj which I wish to picture is that, after we have once realized it, we will endeavour to the end of our life-time to persuade others to act likewise. This Swaraj needs to be experienced, by each one of himself. One drowning man will never save another. Slave ourselves, it might be mere pretension to think, of saving others….

An exhibition concerning Gandhian articulations on visual art cannot be an exhibition either on Gandhi or on artists who lived during his time and were deeply influenced by hid political philosophy. Or for that matter merely exhibiting folk art.

Such an exhibition must operate as a complex act of viewing and experiencing. Beyond the dialectics of Nandalal Bose, Mukul Dey, Asit Haldar, E Venkatappa, Vinayak Masoji, Upendra Maharishi; Jo Davison, Clara Sherido, Felix Topolsky, Philip Jackson, Eduardo Kobra; S.H Raza, M. F Husain, Atul Dodiya, Jitesh Kallat, G.R Iranna and contemporaries; the pioneering works and layouts of Lucknow, Faizpur and Haripura Congress; timeless Gandhi photographs by Jagan Mehta, Kanu Gandhi, Margaret Bourke White, Walter Bosshard, Henri Cartier Bresson and Kulwant Roy; all of which and more are important artistic articulations and interventions ….a fresh juxtaposition is required with all that are mentioned above and more. Hence a look at Gandhi ‘s dialectics, praxis and dilemma, standing today will be a constant shifting gaze and a hard long stare at the same time.

The exhibition includes five distinct treatments. The archival documents of Shri G.D. Birla which illuminates different aspects of his relationship with Gandhi, a draft of Tagore’s landmark letter in his refusal to continue with the decoration of knighthood in the wake of Jallianwala Bagh massacre and some important literature on Gandhi.

Secondly, the BAAC collection which is a mix of diverse voices including A.H. Muller, Nandalal Bose, George Keyt, Abdul Rehman Chughtai, Walter Langhammer, Raja Ravi Verma, Elizabeth Brunner, Sass Brunner, Kshitindranth Majumder, Ramkinker Baij, S. Chavda, M.V Dhurandhar, Amina Kar, Isha Mahammad, Somnath Hore, Bikash Bhattacharjee, Antonio and Angela Trinidade, Asit Halder, G, R Santosh, B. Prabha, R. K. Chandrajit Singh, V. A Mali, Prabhash Sen, Piraji Sagara, A. Ramachandran, Sudhir
Patwardhan, K. Babu Namboodiri, Jiwan Singh, Julien Segard, Vivan Sundaram and Shailesh Bandopadhyay. These are carefully chosen voices from the collection and each of their work reflects the idea of bodies and people in socio-political dilemma, depiction of oral history through the medium, mythologies and rituals interwoven in our lives and the ideas of utopia and dystopia that often overlaps to warn us that there is always an invisible violence in our daily lives.

Thirdly, there are contemporary fresh aticulations for the exhibition: In the frames of Hiran Mitra’s march of the shadows in the sets of the play: The Plea; Ranjan Kaul’s paintings of figures and spaces or Baishampayan Saha’s fragmented photo-collage reiterates the dictum of Gandhi-Martin Luther King Jr-Mandela’s idea of reconciliation. There are exciting Gandhian interpretations by works executed by including Sunil Mody and Ranjit Kumar, Sanjeev Khandekar’s framing of the images talk about the debate between the internal schism versus liberation of self and Masood Hussain’s six canvases is a nuanced look at Bapu set in a contemporary time frame with an universal visual subtext.

Fourth aspect is a set of folk artists and their take on the art from. Putli Ganju from Sohrai art, Ranjan Paswan and his black and white treatments in Madhubani and Durgabai Vyom and her distinctive style within the ambit Gond Art. The fifth and the last aspect is a set of WOW selection of curated international video spread helmed by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne.

It is the violence and the non-violent oscillation of the reference points of the images that becomes both a duality/paradox/metaphor and an oxymoron at the same time. The images challenge the status quo. Looks at newness of hope. Looks at re-generation of spirit. Manufacturing an idea of protest which cannot kill love.

Our visual journey talks about the people’s idea of oneness..that inherent spirit of our times. It talks about digging deep into our roots/routes. The values that Bapu held so dear.

Antonio Alvarado

bio http://and.nmartproject.net/?p=301

Digital, cybernetic and multimedia artist. He has been working for 40 years, having performed multiple solo and group exhibitions. More than 20 years ago he began to work with computers, since then he mixes in his works the electronic, the digital and the plastic.
My ideas, close to Theory of Strings and other contemporary theories, I do not use them as absolute truth but as an excuse to uncover worlds that hide under the layers of what is called reality, expanding it.
Having knowledge of software and hardware, I am in favor of working in collaboration with other people. I am currently developing works, which combine plastic and electronics, with the Weber-Lutgen
Gallery in Seville, the Museo La Neomudejar in Madrid and some members of Makespace Madrid.
Some recent activity:

Curatorial statement
All information is inevitably partial. Nothing is linear. We really do not know how many dimensions or how many nuances the most common fact can have. These manifestations can represent how I
understand the world around me and why I move in my work as a commissioner. To all knowledge I must approach, then every technique must be tested, accepted or abandoned.
My ideas, close to Theory of Strings and other contemporary theories, I do not use them as absolute truth but as an excuse to uncover worlds that are hidden under the layers of what is called reality, expanding it. I make this selection based on the quality and category of the artists. I have chosen to choose consecrated artists along with others who start their career in video art.

Year: 2014.
Duration: 7′ 32”.

Short synopsis
Alchemy aims to achieve, or at least try to think through a complicated labyrinth or encoding, the process leading to purify the impure. And through this purification to obtain the knowledge of all. Opus Nigrum alchemical formula that indicates the phase separation and dissolution of matter The alquimico definicion metafora process as the creative process. By way of battlefield donde the act of deconstruccion and construccion of i subjective and unconscious is pushed permanently by the insatisfaccion, frustracion and doubt. In the same way as this requires a permanent busqueda of
responses did not coded.
“To all appearances, the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing. If we give the attributes of a medium to the artist, we must then deny him the state of consciousness on the esthetic plane about what he is doing or why he is doing it.
All his decisions in the artistic execution of the work rest with pure intuition and cannot be translated into a self-analysis, spoken or written, or even thought out.”
“In the creative act, the artist goes from intention to realization through a chain of totally subjective reactions. His struggle toward the realization is a series of efforts, pains, satisfaction, refusals, decisions, which also cannot and must not be fully self-conscious, at least on the esthetic plane” T.S. Eliot, in his essay on “Tradition and Individual Talent”, writes: “The more perfect the artist, the more completely separate in him will be the man who suffers and the mind which creates; the more perfectly will the mind digest and transmute the passions which are its material.”

Her videos reflect on the importance of images in the construction of the collective imagination, the power of mass media and telecommunications, the marketing strategies and the brands and adverts ubiquity, interactivity and hyperlinks as an illusion of the selection, the changes in the contemporary culture with the electronic distribution, the fragmentation of the narrative discourse, the information
overload, the surveillance control and the loss of privacy.

Title of work: : Fragmented Memory, 2013, 3′ 04”.
Credits: Concept, Video, Animation, Effects, Editing:claRa apaRicio yoldi. Music by Ciara Clifford.
Short synopsis
In post-industrial society we are witnessing information overload. This occurs when the amount of input in a system exceeds its processing capacity. We have fairly limited cognitive processing
capacity, so when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur.
Traditionally, text encoded human knowledge and memory, the printed word was linked to the art of rhetoric. The popularity of hyperlink illustrates the continuing decline in the field of rhetoric and the mistrust of contemporary culture in hierarchies. The two sources connected through a hyperlink have equal weight, without any having priority over the other.
In the different mediums of expression (literature, cinema, visual arts…), we are assisting to the fragmentation of the narrative discourse. We are questioning the traditional narrative resources with the juxtaposition of images, texts, copy-paste collages and a schizophrenic nature. In cyberspace, documents combine musical fragments with other sounds, texts, images…etc. It is this combination of concrete elements that produces the abstract meaning.

    A Virtual Memorial Warsaw 2012

    SFC – Shoah Film Collection
    @ Warsaw Jewish Film Festival (WJFF)
    25-30 October 2012

    After the successful pilot project in Riga in June 2012 and a most challenging manifestation in Phnom Penh (Cambodia) in July 2012, a third presentation of Shoah Film Collection took place in Warsaw in October 2012. Shoah Film Collection was very honoured being invited to manifest itself via a selection from the pool of 70 art film and videos. It was an experiment to confront the audience who visisted the festival with the expectations to consume feature and documentary films like usual, with experimental artistic films confusing the festival vistors profoundly.

    WJFF was featuring a selection from SFC – Shoah Film Collection, a worldwide unique international initiative founded in 2010 by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne – aimed to encourage young artists and filmmaker generations to deal with the topic of collective trauma ( like Holocaust) by using new technologies and contemporary approaches in art,includes currently 50 films and videos – experimental film, videoart and documentations.

    As a complementary component to the screening selection the entire SFC -Shoah Film Collection is simultaneously available online streaming on http://dts.engad.org – the project site of SFC – Shoah Film Collection, on the project blog – all concepts, news and information can be found – http://dts.engad.org/blog/

    A Virtual Memorial Warsaw 2013
    A Virtual Memorial Warsaw 2013 is a media art project by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, media artist aund curator from Cologne/Germany starting in 2012. It is the physical and virtual manifestation of his project “Draft Title: Shoah featuring Shoah Film Collection”, including the preparations for the physical event during Agricola de Cologne’s visit in Warsaw in October 2012, the realisation of the physical events – 25-30 Oct 2012 and 25-30 Oct 2013 including creating the virtual presence, and the post-event era forming the project online to become the virtual memorial including Warsaw as a place for Jewish life, the Warsaw Ghetto and the manifestation of “A Virtual Memorial”. The project is dedicated to the victims of Warsaw Ghetto and Nazism.
    wjff-logoe_300Invited by 11th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival 2013 and 10th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival 2012, there were two occasions to present Shoah Film Collection primarily to Jewish people at different venues and in different ways of representing, mhpj-1imagesso that both manifestation could not be more differently from each other and were, therefore, completely differently perceived by the audience.

    Shoah Film Collection @ 11th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival
    It was an great honour for Shoah Film Collection being invited after 2012 also in 2013 by Warsaw Jewish Film Festival to take place at POLIN – the Museum of the History of Polish Jews. According to thze new venue and the museum space, a different form of presenting and representing Shoag Film Collection was choosen, in order to try another concept to present the art videos of Shoah Film Collection confronted with a different form of “moving pictures”. The film festival and the museum were great experimenting partners, making out of the manifestation a kind of pilot project, as well.
