we know that every video/film wants to be seen. for a swarm-viewing we bring a collection of films and videos that are related to one another – by theme, approach, time, or place – this time we will be showing films on the topic #mybodyispolitical.
The videos/films are presented together yet individually. The people who visit the swarm event can pick up a personal dvd player and each film from a central location where we are on hand to introduce the works one by one. The films/videos then can be viewed, on their own pace, alone or in groups.
Swarm-viewing is a format we’ve experimented with many times and it works really well – people swap films with one another and it seems to encourage people to discuss and engage with the work – it creates a really lovely film respecting atmosphere.
please feel invited to come.
You are always invited to bring your own videos for the bildwechsel archives.

Hilary Goldberg’s recLAmation is a feature-length experimental documentary/narrative film shot on Super 8 in which capitalism in contemporary Los Angeles is overthrown, and queer superheroes navigate a possible future. recLAmation illuminates historic connections between private and public systems of oppression, and explores how worldview shifts caused by personal trauma rendered the capitalist paradigm nonsense.
In the first two sections—1) Consumption and Colonization, 2) Collapse—personal narratives interact with moving images of contemporary Los Angeles, stop motion animation, and sound design. Writer/director Goldberg’s memoir unfolds, offering reflections on time spent with her mother’s violent fiancé and in a mental hospital. Then, a fictional narrative envisions a dream of Los Angeles after it has been liberated from capitalism. Queer superheroes explore a possible future for the city that includes housing for all, truly free markets, the end of prisons, and more.
