We will have the following three Conversadores joining us on 7th of November:

For this night we have invited the following three Conversadores:

Sylvie Kürsten – do not see the image for the image
Julian Ott – bunker obscura
Alice Cannava – occulto – magazine and more

Sylvie Kürsten
Every minute there are 400 hours of video material uploaded on youtube. Who needs another film, another documentary then? Is it time for an iconoclastic Bilderverbot or at least a visual diet or how can we create a trustful imagery in an era of a rising flood of images, that’s corrupted by filters, fake news and algorithms? Questions of a filmmaker, skeptical about her next project.

Julian Ott
American-born and Korean educated, Julian moved to Germany earlier this year to continue his artistic practice of reinterpreting forgotten or all-too-ordinary human objects. While working on his MFA (2016) from Kookmin University, Seoul’s numerous small mountain bunkers or pillboxes inspired his projects about these military structures that exist within civilian life. Today, he is working on a project exploring the meaning of everyday objects by recontextualizing their purpose and appearance.

Alice Cannava
If you browse an Occulto issue, you can expect essays on history of science, biology, mathematics, but also artist’s projects, sci-fi stories, and experimental music. An events series in Berlin integrates the project. Designed, edited and curated by Alice Cannavà. 100% independent!

Doors open: from 7.30pm
