an installation/exhibition of archives from Bildwechsel, in co-operation with WESTWERK.


Bildwechsel is an umbrella organisation for women+ and their representation in media, culture and art.
It houses international archives and collections.
collecting/archiving/presenting – this is our slogan! for over 28 years we have worked as an ‘active’ artists archive.
Bildwechsel is a location, as such it creates a framework for artists, activists and researchers, for meetings and collective thinking and acting – locally, nationally and internationally.

The exhibition “hanging out with archives” invites you to dive-in and take a closer look at the archives and archival material we have, and the way we work as an active archive. From the traditional paper-file to the online video museum, the kunstlerinnenarchiv to the feminale collection, the documentations of events, workshops, trips, visits and tours – the visitor can explore the way Bildwechsel works as an active, engaged and developing collection.
look! archives at work!

Fuckface and the Cowboys from Space

Burnout Films, 2006
Years in the making, FF&TCFS is an epoch-spanning, laser-blasting technicolour whirl of a sci-fi western. Fuckface of the planet Fagon, a noble but idiotic Disco Robot, attempts to save his people from the oppressive rule of the Space Cowboys. Contains lots of nudity and violence, but no swearing, sorry.

Also showing:



Initiated and organized from kaskadenkondensator and
