descriptif

RESISTANCE[S] II, second volet de la collection dvd éponyme, propose une sélection de neuf films et vidéos d'artistes du Maghreb et du Moyen-Orient Intimes, poétiques ou documentaires, ces oeuvres complexes, nourries de différents registres artistiques et culturels, témoignent de la vitalité et de la diversité créatives dans ces régions. Loin de toutes concessions aux stéréotypes ambiants, les auteurs explorent des questions existentielles, politiques ou esthétiques avec le souci d'ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives de narrations et de troubler les représentations servies par l'image monolithique et figée communément admise.


Résistance(s) Volume II offre une intéressante version de l'art hybride audiovisuel d'aujourd'hui. - BREF

RESISTANCE[S] II, die zweite Ausgabe der gleichnamigen DVD Kollektion präsentiert Programm mit 9 Künstlerfilmen aus Nordafrika und dem Mittleren Osten. Die komplexen Arbeiten beziehen ihre Inspiration aus verschiedenen künstlerischen und kulturellen Registern und zeugen auf intime, poetische oder dokumentarische Weise von der Vitalität und kreativen Vielfalt dieser Regionen. Weit entfernt von den gängigen Stereotypen, suchen die vertretenen Künstler nach Antworten auf existentielle, politische oder ästhetische Fragen. Sie eröffnen mit ihren Werken neue Erzählperspektiven und hinterfragen das oft monolithische und festgefahrene Bild dieser Kulturen. Über die dargestellten Themen hinaus, sind die Werke von RESISTANCE[S] II eng mit ihrem Entstehungskontext verflochten und verwischen die Vorstellung eines "hier" und "dort". Die Einführung von imaginären Elementen in die Erzählung erprobt dabei die Flexibilität des dokumentarischen Prozesses und enthüllt versteckte Winkel der Wirklichkeit, in denen sich unsichtbare Szenarien, enttäuschte Sehnsüchte oder Vorstellungen einer erträumten Zukunft verbergen.

RESISTANCE[S] II, curated by Silke Schmickl and Christine Sehnaoui, presents a selection of experimental film and video art from the Middle East and North Africa.
Featuring nine artists from a variety of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds, these intimate, poetic and documentary works are witness to the region's complexity, vitality and diversity of creative energies. Distanced from the usual stereotypes, the artists - Katia Kameli, Bouchra Khalili, Al Fadhil, Zineb Sedira, Joude Gorani, Nesrine Khodr, Pauline M'Barek, Jalal Toufic and Nassim Amaouche - aim to explore the existential, political and aesthetic issues of our times while opening up to new narrative perspectives that break with our media's monotonous and repetitive imagery.

The RESISTANCE[S] II films, beyond the covered themes, play with contextual relationships by blurring the notions of a here and there. The introduction of storytelling and narration proves the flexibility of the documentary format and reveals hidden pockets of reality with
unpredictable scenarios, failed aspiration or unimaginable futures.

"Creating is not communicating, but resisting (…) Art is what resists: it resists against death, servitude, infamy, shame." Inspired by this quotation of Gilles Deleuze (Pourparler, 1972-1990) and in the context of the tens political situation between the Arab and Western worlds, the idea of the RESISTANCE[S] collection was born in 2005. After extended research a first DVD was released in 2006 featuring eight experimental films. The release of RESISTANCE[S] II completes a collection that aims to become a veritable anthology of Arab cinematographic art.

The artists and filmmakers of RESISTANCE[S] II have a rich theoretical and practical background. In alternating established authors like Jayce Salloum, Zineb Sedira, Jalal Toufic and Mounir Fatmi with emerging artists like Waël Noureddine, Katia Kameli and Pauline M'Barek, this compilation stresses the importance of cinematographic art within contemporary Arab art. During the beginning of the 20th century, poets and novelists were among the more radical critics within the Arab world. Many of them took an active role in emerging socialist and feminist political movements. A number of Arab filmmakers started as writers. As video has become more accessible, it has taken up the role of the pen: a handy medium, portable, and if necessary, disposable, that has the ability to condense and express political situations in a personal manner.

The nine films of RESISTANCE[S] II are subtitled in 4 languages (English, French, German and Arabic) and enriched by interviews with the artists, biographies and an essay by Cédric Vincent. The DVD is priced at 25 Euros (17 GBP or 25 US$) and is available through the Lowave website www.lowave.com as well as www.microcinema.com, www.amazon.de and a number of specialty shops around the world including the ICA and BFI bookshop in London, the Pompidou Center in Paris, and the ZKM in Karlsruhe.

Lowave is an independent DVD label with the objective of discovering and promoting contemporary film and video art. Its ambition is to create a new marketplace for the work of cutting-edge artists and filmmakers, underrecognized by the traditional distribution channels, by making them accessible to the public via the DVD format.
With DVD, cutting-edge independent film can finally find its audience.
