HYBRID
Germany 2015/ 2016

The film Hybrid takes place in the fictitious city of Stevia in the year 3000: Using their media installation LIFE 3.0 as a film set, both artists created a future scenario in which the world is populated by “normal” people and hybrid beings of humans, flora and fauna. Along with the loss of the hybrid’s photosynthetic abilities and the increased oxygen consumption, both groups get into conflict. In the maelstrom of the camera as well as the sonorous voice of artist Hans Op de Beeck, a narrative unfolds that interweaves a personal drama with the moral questions of the society as a whole.

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.
