Mediamatic Off-line Vol 11#3 Vergessenen Fahnen
Vol 11#1 and Vol 11#2
The projections from Mediamatic Screen vol 11 are adventurous movements, all with their own character, made by 9 different artists. The clips are not at all alike, and repeatedly contradictory artistic ideologies are encountered. Driessens/Verstappen reveal the secret of an urban garden in silenced time lapse, Maurer United Architects use a computer game as architectural model. Gerald van der Kaap shows the definite Chinese, Confucian view, while Meggie Schneider portrays the reality of new China with a beautiful water ballet. Joes Koppers' artistic reflections of the place where his clip is being projected are alternated by the simplistic dimension of the absurd comic by Nepco. Merel Mirage shows the miracle of modern tourism while Arnoud Holleman's nostalgia is focused on the post-war and apparently innocent Netherlands. Finally Will Holder's silenced colors then indeed allow Lodeizen's blue heavens to show in a rain puddle.
Mediamatic Off-line Vol 11#1 Screen
Mediamatic Screen 13-22 has a rather unexpected artistic structure. Besides the shared assignment to portray the dynamics of the city, it also seems that the artists Mediamatic invited have the hidden agenda of wanting to accentuate the differences between man and woman.
Mediamatic Off-line Vol 11#2 Screen
Mediamatic Off-line Vol 11#1 and 11#2 together (4 euro discount):
Cesare Davolio's CD-ROM Annunciation is a precise re-creation of Moro's imprisonment and death; a personal, digital essay about a historical event which grew to be a contemporary drama with classical overtones, partly because of Moro's evocative letters to his family, the press and fellow party members, to whom he wrote: My blood shall be upon you.
With introductions by Arie Altena and Dirk van Weelden and a personal comment of 'eye-witness' Salvatore Puglia.
Mediamatic Off-line vol 10#2 (Annunciation)
Mathilde ter Heijne's For a better World is a virtual essay on some of the public self-immolations to have been carried out in recent decades, illustrated with video footage and the spoken commentary of subjective and objective witnesses. The whole is comprised within, and coordinated by, a digital drawing through which the user navigates with the mouse.
