With this exhibition project, the duo CocoLippo, Julia-Lena Lippoldt and Luis Negrón van Grieken, install their works in process, site-specific and space spanning. A juxtaposition in which the works enter into a dialogue by means of a gesture, intertwining, transforming and expanding. Aspects of space as well as the complexity of conversation as confrontation emerge, addressing themes of authorship, fragility, and the gaze of the other(s). The starting point is our working methods: video, sound and installation. We talk about our relationship to each other as a pair of artists as well as relational, political constructions. With a 3D camera we will document the space for a 3D computer simulation, creating a VR world. (Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version))
Next: imaginar el postpresente // imagine the post-present
When Albert Einstein said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge” he was recognizing in the imagination the possibility of making new connections, developing new concepts and innovating ways of approaching reality. His idea that “Knowledge is limited, imagination envelops the world” allows us to investigate the current crisis without appealing to nostalgia or closing ourselves to the excessive. Our time is the post-present: a becoming of instants without certainties or future promises. Immersed in its inexhaustible flow we are called to recognize in the imagination a path to deal with our humanity in crisis. Philosophy, art and technology will do the same in this five-session meeting.

Digital technology added to the fleeting nature of contemporary experiences has transformed the relationship between human beings and memory. Not only because memory has expanded around the body in an infinite number of electronic devices, but also because memories travel blurry through space and, like electronic ghosts, suddenly return to the interfaces of our technological extensions. For art and philosophy memory continues to generate dilemmas, for technology it poses challenges. This fifth edition will discuss memory in the post-present and its relationship to 21st century digital artifacts.

Conversation of Moving Image and Sound

UnStumm is a project for improvised film and music (Echtzeitfilm) for cross-disciplinary and crosscultural collaboration between filmmakers, video artists and musicians from Germany and other countries. The project is organized and curated by video artist Claudia Schmitz and guitarist/soundartist Nicola L. Hein.
It aims to create an environment of cultural and creative exchange, where a common complex artistic language is invented and used to communicate narratives, textures, colliding, combining, attracting worlds of sight and sound. The group of eight artists will work together in two different groups for three days to create an audiovisual performance that explores multidisciplinary improvisation as well as structure and narrative. The resulting artworks reflect on the themes of interculturality, cultural identity, cross cultural communication, the history of artistic thought (in different cultures) and many other philosophical topoi. The concert encompasses two Echtzeit-movies, which are improvised by a group alongside a conceptual composition that has been worked out during the rehearsals. Every group presents a piece that is in between 40-50 minutes long.
