Film series to complement the exhibition Readings From Below, in collaboration with the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art
Times Art Center Berlin is pleased to announce the upcoming group show Readings From Below. The exhibition explores how artists engage us in new readings of our complex present by making use of the virtual potentials of archives.
The Conflictual Topography public program, organized by Heidi Ballet, was planned to take place during the exhibition of Zhou Tao: Winter North Summer South but came to a halt due to the coronavirus crisis. In the revised program, the artists of the original program are revisited under the new challenging circumstances. For the third iteration, Daniela Ortiz’s film The Empire of Law will be screened online between August 19 and August 26.
The series Conflictual Topography, organized by Heidi Ballet, was originally conceived as a public program during the exhibition of Zhou Tao: Winter North Summer South and was later adapted to the exceptional months we are living through. Heidi Ballet talked with Xiang Zairong, a researcher, theorist, and sometimes curator, about Chinese farmer’s markets, the ongoing pandemic, food, and face masks in Europe and in China.
Online Screening with Rosa Barba and Ben Rivers
