Inspired by the Goethe-Institut’s film archive, artist Gloria Zein has chosen a selection of films from the past 50 years to explore the spaces of freedom that enable and result from attempts of resistance. In moments of crisis, decisions become vital: they facilitate action, change and a re-gaining of control; they can be deliberate or they can be rash; they can trigger chain reactions and cause total loss of control. Decisions can also back-fire. There is also the decision to do nothing: passivity or evasiveness may become a form of silent resistance.
A number of screenings will be accompanied by short works by the artists Fiona Chambers, Marcus Coates and Anita Delaney and by director Helke Sander.
