Release of OEI # 69–70: On Film + Filmform Honorary Award at Index

Thursday, October 15, 2015, 7 pm

Release and presentation of the new issue of OEI magazine with a focus on experimental film, with with talks, discussions and screenings.

"In an effort to create a constructive yet open format, rather than establish a strict thematic framework, OEI On Film (#69–70) refers to a number of heterogeneous and parallel conditions where texts, archival material and visual/textual montages are interspersed with one another. The aim has been to emphasize different speeds of reading, various focal points, unexpected constellations and new stratifications. […] The issue does not have the ambition to present a unified perspective, but instead suggests that the polysemic horizon that it has strived to retain – between differential, structural, material, and political discourses and dispositifs – on one level could be tracked down to the dynamic space of interpretation that can be found in the title of a 1964 film by Carl Slättne, who recently passed away: A Film – An AntiFilm – A FilmFilm" (from the preface).

During the evening Filmform will present their Honorary Award 2015 to a person who has distinguished him or herself in the domain of experimental film and video art.

The Modern City: DVD-release and film screening with an introduction by curator Florian Wüst

Thursday, 4 June 2015, 18:30

"17 October. Today suddenly quite strongly realized the value of the film: reluctance and doubt completely past. Gripped by this work task. Already over the last few days had at times moments full of keenness and excitement, moments in which life could be sensed, but everything still lay mute under the radiations of phoniness."
Peter Weiss

Author and playwright Peter Weiss' last film project was a half-hour documentary about collective habitation at the outskirts of Copenhagen, commissioned by the Statens Filmcentral for Dansk Kulturfilm. It was a struggle on many levels—privately and professionally. But apart from marking a turning point in the life and work of Weiss, Bag de ens facader (Behind the same façades) presents an outstanding document on the subject of modern housing and city planning at the beginning of the 1960s.

In keeping with the "Neues Bauen" of the 1920s, the modernization of the European metropolis after 1945 aimed to create better living conditions for the working population. Housing space was in short supply. Industrial mass production and consumer culture confronted people and their social relationships with enormous changes. The medium of film served as a means both to promote the urban and transportation models "of tomorrow," and to lend expression to critique of the rationalization of everyday life.

Besides the Swedish premiere of Bag de ens facader in digital version with English subtitles, the screening will feature Pontus Hultén and Hans Nordenström's dadaistic take on Stockholm in En dag i staden (1956) and the experimental film essay Die Stadt by Herbert Vesely from 1960, shot in West Berlin. All three films make part of a new DVD edition entitled Die moderne Stadt. Film essays on the new urbanity of the 1950s and 60s, edited by Ralph Eue and Florian Wüst and produced in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.

The screening is presented by Film i Samtidskonstennewwindow and Indexnewwindow in collaboration with Filmform and Goethe-Institut Stockholmnewwindow.
