Bildwechsel Hamburg, in association with (video-)artist* and activist*, will be showing a selection of videos from their archives in Zurich on Sunday the 28th of January.
Schwarmsichtung was developed by Bildwechsel and allows the participants to watch different videos at the same time individually.
The videos are running on small dvd-devices. This opens up the opportunity for each spectator* to define her* own way of watching the material.
Why is it getting dark so early? In which direction will society change? Who will I embrace in 10 and in 100 years? Where will it be? How will I name myself, if there won’t be any norms of desire? What kind of terms will exist for queer Grand-mas and Grand-dads? How will we live and who will that “we” be? Will we build new communities? How? Didn’t we already did that?! Do we want to go on with it? What do I want? Was it a good idea? What about the good ideas that existed, exist and will come? This are just a few questions that the Bildwechsel Team asked itself while curating the Schwarmsichtung at Les Complices*.
