24 HOURS
24 Hours presents an outdoor preview of a Karrabing audio and video project exploring the ordinary obstacles Indigenous families face as they move through an ordinary day. Across four video panels, arranged to follow the path of the sun, a sonic landscape is layered with lyrics written by the collective and music directed by its younger members. 24 Hours dramatizes and satirizes the settler forms of governance and extractive capitalism that Karrabing members encounter over the course of a day.

**************

The Karrabing Film Collective is an indigenous media collective founded in 2010 and based at the upper end of the Northern Territory in Australia. They see themselves as a grassroots movement which uses its aesthetic practice as a means of self-organization. Their films show their lives, forge links to their land, and intervene in the global image of indigenousness. Their artistic language, situated between fiction and documentary as well as history and the present can be understood as a new form of collective indigenous action. The medium of film is a form of survival strategy – a refusal to renounce their own land and a means of exploring the social conditions of inequality.

With Stoffwechsel, a series of events, workshops, and exhibitions dealing with the materiality of film as a medium of memory and earth as an archive, Film Feld Forschung pursues its goal of using the interior and exterior spaces of silent green for theoretical and practical research into the medium of film.

Comizi D’amore oder Liebe in Zeiten des Kapitalismus
Um 12:00 Galerie Wedding
COMIZI D’AMORE oder LIEBE IN ZEITEN DES KAPITALISMUS

Konstanze Schmitt in Zusammenarbeit mit Minze Tummescheit. Performance von Mariana Senne.

Eine performative Recherche im Rahmen des Ausstellungsprogrammes SoS (Soft Solidarity), konzipiert von Nataša Ilić und Solvej Helweg Ovesen und der KGB-Woche

15. - 30.08.2019

Di – Sa 12-19 Uhr in der Galerie Wedding und Umgebung

Was ist das für ein Gefühl im Kapitalismus zu leben? Und welcher Handel wird in der Liebe betrieben?

Diesen Überlegungen wird die Künstlerin Konstanze Schmitt gemeinsam mit der Filmemacherin Minze Tummescheit und der Performerin Mariana Senne im August 2019 in einer an Pier Paolo Pasolinis filmische Befragung »Comizi d'amore/Gastmahl der Liebe« (Italien, 1964) angelehnten militanten Untersuchung nachgehen, die zugleich eine Intervention in den öffentlichen Raum des Wedding darstellt.

Pasolini reiste für seinen 1963 entstandenen Dokumentarfilm ein halbes Jahr durch Italien und befragte Menschen auf dem Land, in der Stadt und am Strand, Alte und Junge, Arme und Reiche, ganz direkt nach der »Liebe« und ihren Umständen, z.B.: Woher kommen die Kinder? Wie wichtig ist sexuelle Erfüllung in einer Partnerschaft? Was bedeutet Homosexualität? Warum gibt es Prostitution? Etc.

Schmitts performative Recherche fragt dagegen hauptsächlich nach dem Verhältnis von romantischer Liebe und Kapitalismus sowie dem Verständnis und der Herstellung von Solidarität als gesellschaftlicher Beziehungsweise gestern und heute.

Die Dérives durch die aktuelle und historische Liebeslandschaft des Wedding werden von den Künstlerinnen während der Zeit der Recherche fortlaufend zu den Öffnungszeiten in den Räumen der Galerie Wedding kartographiert und performativ verarbeitet. Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen, an diesem Prozess punktuell oder dauerhaft teilzunehmen.

Comizi d’amore knüpft an Konstanze Schmitts künstlerische Beschäftigung mit Reproduktion, Solidarität und selbstorganisierter (Arbeiter-)Kultur an. Sie ist der erste Teil einer dreiteiligen Arbeit zur Liebe im Kapitalismus, die im Februar 2020 ihren Abschluss in einer Ausstellung in der Galerie Wedding hat.

Mit freundlicher Unterstützung der Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa, Fonds für Ausstellungsvergütungen und dem Arbeitskreis der Kommunalen Galerien Berlin.

COMIZI D’AMORE

oder

LIEBE IN ZEITEN DES KAPITALISMUS

(COMIZI D'AMORE or LOVE IN TIMES OF CAPITALISM)

Konstanze Schmitt in cooperation with Minze Tummescheit. Performance by Mariana Senne.

A performative research within the framework of the exhibition program SoS (Soft Solidarity), conceived by Nataša Ilić and Solvej Helweg Ovesen and the KGB Kunstwoche.

15. - 30.08.2019

Tue - Sat 12-19 at Galerie Wedding and surroundings

What is that feeling about living in capitalism? And what trade is made in love?

The artist Konstanze Schmitt, together with the filmmaker Minze Tummescheit and the performer Mariana Senne, will pursue these considerations in August 2019 in a militant investigation based on Pier Paolo Pasolini's film »Comizi d'amore/ Love Meeting« (Italy, 1964), which at the same time represents an intervention in the public space of Wedding.

For his 1963 documentary Pasolini travelled through Italy for half a year and interviewed people in the countryside, in the city and on the beach, old and young, poor and rich, directly about »love« and its circumstances, for example: Where do the children come from? How important is sexual fulfillment in a partnership? What does homosexuality mean? Why is there prostitution? Etc.

Schmitt's performative research, on the other hand, mainly examines the relationship between romantic love and capitalism, as well as the understanding and creation of solidarity as a social orbit yesterday and today. The dérives through the current and historical love landscape of Wedding are continuously mapped and performatively processed by the artists during the time of the research during the opening hours in the rooms of the Wedding Gallery. All interested parties are cordially invited to participate in this process either selectively or permanently.

Comizi d'amore takes up Konstanze Schmitt's artistic engagement with reproduction, solidarity and self-organized (worker) culture. It is the first part of a three-part work on love in capitalism, which will conclude in February 2020 with an exhibition at Galerie Wedding.

With kind support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe, Berlin, funds »Ausstellungsvergütungen« and the working comittee of the communal galleries Berlin.

🕢 Start: 18:30 h

**Location **
🗣🗣 This event will take place at Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V.

Culture plays a significant role in conserving the environment in many countries in Africa. Through indigenous knowledge which exists as stories, songs, folklore, proverbs, cultural values, norms, beliefs, rituals, local languages and agricultural practices there is strong evidence that Africans have always sought to live sustainably within their environment. These traditional or cultural practices are ingeniously designed to address local ecological limitations by maintaining a sustainable utilization and protection of commonly shared natural resources.

The evening will kick off with the screening of the film Ayɛwohomumɔ, a short, poetic portrait of winter and the “winter blues”. Thereafter, Patrick Mpedzisi will explore some of those proverbial learnings, the totemic approaches and the spiritual underpinnings which highlight the environmental protection philosophies of the Shona people in particular as well as the bantus in general. Proverbs have provided advisory, reflective and philosophical foundations upon which sustainable lifestyles were premised. With over 25 totems that can be identified in Zimbabwe upon which taboos were built in order to nurture sustainable use of natural resources. Spiritual practices also encompassed a profound reverence for the relationship between humans and the environment. Thandiwe Majama, a social entrepreneur promoting Eco-conscious behaviour within communities through fashion and community activities, will also join the conversation.

► About Ayɛwohomumɔ (You Have Made Yourself Wretched)

Looking out her window at one of Europe's rainiest cities, a self-described pluviophile (lover of rain) reminisces about the tropical storms of her Ghanaian childhood. Drawing upon Akan traditions for naming the months, Ayɛwohomumɔ is a short, poetic portrait of winter and the “winter blues” in Belgium.

Premiere zum Kinostart: Die Einzelteile der Liebe
Um 19:30 City Kino
Die Einzelteile der Liebe
Premiere zum Kinostart in Anwesenheit des Filmteams mit Filmgespräch!
Kurz nachdem Sophie hochschwanger von ihrem Freund sitzengelassen wird, lernt sie Georg kennen – und lieben. Georg wird für den neu geborenen Jakob wie selbstverständlich zum Vater. Die zusammengesetzte Familie hat mit den üblichen Problemen moderner Eltern zu kämpfen: Wer darf arbeiten, wer kümmert sich ums Kind? Wie viel Freiheit ist noch erlaubt, wie viel Selbstaufgabe muss sein? Und wo bleibt bei alledem die Leidenschaft? Ein paar Jahre später sind Georg und Sophie getrennt. Jakob ist sechs Jahre alt, die Eltern kämpfen verbissen um das Sorgerecht. Ausgerechnet Sophies neuer Partner fängt an, zwischen den Fronten zu vermitteln. Miriam Bliese erzählt in ihrem Debütfilm klug, humorvoll, mit viel Zärtlichkeit für ihre Figuren und mit einem sehr besonderen Setting über die Komplikationen einer endenden Liebe. Eine symbolisch wichtige Rolle spielt hier eine Gegensprechanlage, aber seht selbst!

DIY (Do It Yourself) und DIWO (Do It With Others) Workshops, Vorträge und Kurse von Fachleuten der Branche, Treffen für Information / dem Teilen von Erfahrungen und Jam-Sessions für Künstler und Anfänger.

Burning (OmU)
Um 22:00 City Kino
Burning
Nach seinem Studium kehrt der junge Jongsu in sein Heimatdorf zurück. Ein zufälliges Wiedertreffen mit seiner Schulkameradin Haemi führt zu einer gemeinsamen Nacht. Jongsus Gefühle sind geweckt, doch der Zeitpunkt ist ungünstig – Haemi steht kurz vor einem lange geplanten Trip nach Afrika. Sehnsüchtig erwartet Jongsu den Tag ihrer Rückkehr. Am Flughafen trifft er Haemi jedoch nicht alleine an. Auf der Reise hat sie den wohlhabenden und mysteriösen Ben kennengelernt, der von nun an nicht mehr von ihrer Seite weicht. Als Haemi plötzlich spurlos verschwindet, stürzt die verzweifelte Suche nach ihr Jongsu in ein Labyrinth aus Misstrauen und Paranoia.
„Umso größer das Glück, wenn man ab und an daran erinnert wird, dass es auch anders geht und noch Filme jenseits der Fließbandproduktion mit ihren standardisierten Zutaten gedreht werden. So wie zum Beispiel der südkoreanische Liebesthriller "Burning" von Lee Chang-dong, der zum Besten gehört, was man dieses Jahr im Kino sehen kann.“ (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
