On a proposal by  Michael Koch & Denise Parizek

Sommerloch is a 24/7 show in which art short films by internationally renowned artists are shown.

Michael Koch foils the large shop window and leaves a quasi peephole through which the art films can be viewed. Since we have an Café Cairo / Parklet by Oscar Cueto & Tiberius Stanciu in front of the door in summer, visitors can also take a seat and let the films take their toll.

The choreography of a woman and a lace. Tension and release. A deep breathe suspended.

12 min, single-channel digital video

Challenging expectations and subverting gender tropes, a performance-for-video lays bare problematic symbolic messaging embedded in popular culture and cinema through a parody of the unflinching walk in four explosive vignettes.

Medium: animation / length: 3’38 / year: 2014 (new version with subtitles 2020)

girls_2 is an animation film, which deals with the lives of the so called „russian-germans“ („Aussiedler) in Germany. Growing up as a woman in this multi-cultural family, the artist was herself confronted with many clichés and prejudices. The film is on the one hand a trip to find the origins of this stereotypes and who is actually fullfilling them, but it is also a journey in to her own past.

Borjana Ventzislavova °

The work of the artist Borjana Ventzislavova represents a post-pandemic program for a transformed post-capitalist progressive Europe and an internationally active world. The redistribution of wealth, an economy beyond capitalism, a welcome-migration policy, transparency, dignity, self-determination and solidarity are just some of the points of the new programme that are presented and are in the process of being implemented.

In my video performance I demonstrate several intimate episodes of experimental research to find stability in the space inbetween art and science.
