Beschrijving

This extended evening programme of screenings, talks and conversations will address a variety of modes in which cinema and video culture represent the ongoing ecological crisis. Organized as a collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and FIBER, the event will be the first in a series of collective conversations on ecological imaginaries and audiovisual methodologies to diversify perspectives on our changing earth.

The evening will start with For the Record: Rendering Climate, which will address how popular music videos take on urgent environmental issues. Subsequently, Matter: Geological Filmmaking will discuss encounters between film and geology. With musician and creative director Tom Burke, writer and activist James Westcott (Extinction Rebellion London), FIBER (Cartographies of the Vanishing Now), filmmaker and writer Sasha Litvintseva and more.

For the Record: Rendering Climate - 19:00 - 20:30

Rendering Climate examines how popular music videos take on urgent environmental issues, and will discuss local and global imaginaries and visual communication strategies within artistic practice, activism and journalism. With presentations by creative director and musician Tom Burke and writer and activist James Westcott (Extinction Rebellion London), and a screening of Tom Burke’s music film From Here We Go Extreme.

Tom Burke is a musician, creative director and curator of live experiences. He activates new models of collaboration between theatrical, musical, film and political philosophy practices. He has curated and produced live experiences for the British Film Institute, XL Recordings, the British Council and the Dutch National Opera. His band Citizens! rose to fame and toured worldwide including live performances at Glastonbury, South by Southwest, the Pompidou Centre and Palais De Tokyo. Tom often collaborates with his wife Chilean architect Carla Aldunate. They practice between London, Santiago and Amsterdam.

James Westcott teaches at the Architectural Association in London (a unit on re-used materials with the Brussels-based collective Rotor), and he taught a seminar on the Anthropocene at TU Delft. He currently develops film and TV projects for a production company in London, and is also editing Countryside: A Report, by Rem Koolhaas and AMO, to be published by Taschen in 2020. Also with Koolhaas and AMO, he was co-editor of Project Japan (Taschen, 2011), and editor-in-chief of the 2,500-page Elements of Architecture (Taschen, 2018). He is the author of When Marina Abramovic Dies: A Biography (MIT Press, 2010) and his writing on art, architecture and culture has appeared in the Guardian, the New York Times, Aeon, and Salon. He is active with Extinction Rebellion in London.


Matter: Geological Filmmaking- 21:00 - 22:00

Geological Filmmaking stages an encounter between film and geology across their formal, material and temporal dimensions, and highlights some representational and perceptual issues surrounding the ecological crisis. In a presentation and screenings of two films Salarium (2017) and Asbestos (2016), Sasha Litvintseva will address these questions through the prisms of the geological phenomenon of sinkholes and geological material of asbestos.

Sasha Litvintseva is an artist filmmaker and writer, whose work is situated on the uncertain thresholds of the perceptible and the communicable, organism and environment, and entropy and quantification. Her work has been exhibited worldwide including solo presentations at Institute of Contemporary Art, London and Berlinische Galerie, Modern Art Museum Berlin; screenings including at the Berlinale, Rotterdam, Courtisane, Cinema Du Reel, RIDM, Alchemy, Sonic Acts and more. Sasha is a lecturer in Film Theory and Practice at Queen Mary University of London and holds a PhD in Media, Communications and Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths.


FIBER: Cartographies of the Vanishing Now
The evening is a collaborative pilot of the longer string of events organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut x FIBER in 2020. FIBER is an Amsterdam-based platform and festival that is currently running the project Cartographies of the Vanishing Now; a new research and development project exploring the potential of sensory art, cartography and audiovisual strategies to map realities in the age of environmental collapse. It sets out to capture the impact of the growing ecological instability on the way we organise and model our modern world, traces the forces behind environmental change and simultaneous shifts perspectives to move to adaptive futures. COTVN is run by Jarl Schulp, Xandra van der Eijk and Mark IJzerman and a team of researchers.
