November 11th we present at Cinema Arsenal the manifesta 7 film program curated by Anselm Franke and Hila Peleg for Fortezza / Franzensfeste.
In attendance: the curators and the artists Harun Farocki, Karoe Goldt und Karl Kels
One of the locations where the European Biennial of Contemporary Art will take place until November 2 is in Fortezza/Franzensfeste in South Tyrol, Italy, and it's a fortress. "The project entitled "Scenarios" aims to transform the spectacular backdrop of Fortezza/Franzensfeste into a scripted space with voice recordings, text, light and landscape." Visitors can hear recordings of texts the participating artists have written about the location. In one room, it's very still: silent films are projected on the walls of the fortress vault; due to their arrangement in the room, they communicate with each other in a peculiar way. They have been provided by the Arsenal. And we are transferring the spatial arrangement into a chronological one for the cinema.
