GLITCHES documents performative interventions by the artist Coco Bergholm. Over a period of several months, she produced printed curtains from photographed façade sections of the Berlin districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln in order to place them exactly over the original motif. This change of materiality shakes up the often fragmented cityscape of shop windows, doors, posters, graffiti and stickers. A visual language emerges that is more rooted in the digital and its artefacts. She thus succeeds in transferring these glitches, ruptures and smudges into real space, allowing us to break out of the habitual everyday filter for a moment. Bergholm creates delicate moments of irritation and thus playfully confronts our own perception.

Phantom Horizons

The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
