SCREEN Festival celebrates its 10th edition and again will transform Barcelona into the essential international event for professionals and lovers of art practices related to video, film and new media. The Festival program, presented in various venues throughout the city, is generated by inviting international platforms, curators and institutions to collaborate with local actors, both of them involved and proactive with regards to moving image.
Auguste Orts will present a session that puts three ways of approaching urban and/or architectural space in relation to the possibilities offered by its cinematic capture. Oh by Anouk De Clercq revives the utopian spirit of the renegade architect Etienne-Louis Boullée (1728-1799), in a work that extends its interest for the potential of digital language to create possible worlds. The series Concrete & Samples by Aglaia Konrad places space as the main character and turns the camera's takes in the main argument of an audiovisual portrait of architecture. Herman Asselberghs' a.m/p.m offers a complex approximation of his feelings and ideas in respect to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from various takes of the city that contrast the usual mediatisation of the situation.
Participant platform: Auguste Orts is a platform founded in 2006 by artists Herman Asselberghs, Sven Augustijnen, Manon de Boer and Anouk De Clercq, addressing questions on autonomous production and distribution. Auguste Orts operates within the broad field of cinema, video, visual arts, documentary and experimental film.
