Connective Videos: Berlin – Hong Kong is a new collaborative platform between Germany and Hong Kong, curated byIsaac Leung (Videotage, Hong Kong) and Olaf Stüber (Videoart at Midnight, Berlin), presented by Goethe-Institut Hongkong. The project encompasses the video art collections of the Videoart at Midnight Edition and the Videotage Media Art Collection. In multiple screenings throughout 2018, Connective Videos aims to learn, compare, and reimagine compelling stories told by various German and Hong Kong artists. It will consider histories across various geographical spaces and offer insights into our existing knowledge of video art production and archival practices.
The screening and the post-screening discussion will be moderated by Isaac Leung.
This first video night will introduce Angela Su (Hong Kong) and Martin Skauen (Norway/ Berlin), with selected works. All their films are dealing with (real or imagined) artist portraits – mostly outsider experimental artists, exploring the fragility of individual artistic expression, questioning the construction of a ‘norm’ and touching upon different concepts of reality.
