You surely already know about bildwechsel’s Swarm Viewing format…?
You don’t? Well, a Swarm Viewing is a collective screening of an abundant selection of videos/films on a particular topic drawn from the bildwechsel archives that can be watched on small portable DVD players.
We travel with our equipment to different places where you choose the videos you want to watch, and you can view them at your own pace, either solo or in groups.
Our next Swarm Viewing will take place at Les Complices* in Zurich.
Both the winter and the current political situation beg us to feed our
ideas and utopias with old and new impressions. Getting together,
exchanging ideas and letting the mind wander: with films and videos!
For the Swarm Viewing in Zurich, we are selecting both old and new gems
and pearls from the bildwechsel archives… and hopefully jewels
currently slumbering in your mind or on your computer will help fill our
treasure chest of hope. The darkness is long these days and a three
minute video can be quickly produced…
The deadline to submit your films and videos is January 14, 2018.
For the Swarm Viewing at Les Complices*, we are interested in films
about utopias, existing and future communities and collectives, feminist
sci-fi films, documentaries about squatting or interventions that can
help bring about new ideas and ways of living. We also love experimental
discourses about future visions and are likewise interested in aging
within queer communities.
The Swarm viewing will take place on January 28, 2018 at Les Complices*
in Zurich, Switzerland.

Your submissions will become part of the bildwechsel video collection.
