CROSSBREEDS 14 Austria

Please join Im_flieger in the former Stollwerck chocolate factory in Vienna’s 12th district for a screening of VIVE LE CAPITAL.

CROSSBREEDS 2014 is in search of time. Neoliberal politics has destroyed all forms of time standing in the way of the logic of efficiency and capital. Contemporary man faces the challenge of managing the number of possible situations and their varying time shapes. In order to do this, he continuously moves between internalized rhythms and routines, and the flexible and reflexive creation of individual time structures.
We’re addressing contemporaries and contemporary witnesses who guide or accompany us on historical paths. We attempt time jumps into the future and let ourselves be abducted into fictions of the present. We investigate the city’s body, we embody time. Together with time workers we surrender to sweet idleness and let the continuous bustle of everyday life come to a standstill.
Our stories are mixed with history. We keep claiming our place and at sunrise and sundown visit strange animals in Vienna’s first urban national park. Walking, we meet other cities and times, focusing the unnoticed, and in the walk-in archive we blend Yesterday with Today. We unfold to become an urban stage, let the flow change direction and appropriate Revolution 1934 playfully. Blind between glances, we are ready for the zombie’s slow pace, holding our breath for 5 minutes. Ceaselessly we caress the cheek and dissolve in whiteness or listen to the timeless transformation.

KINO DER KUNST

 

VIVE LE CAPITAL has been selected to screen at KINO DER KUNST—a first time event presenting films by visual artists who take cinema beyond its traditional boundaries and explore new narrative forms. I’m humbled to show alongside some of my favorite artists like: Rä di Martino, Guido van der Werve, Uriel Orlow and Omer Fast.
