Peripheral Intuitions presents: screening: DISRUPTIVE FICTIONS presented by Distruktur
The lines between art and cinema are contested territory: How can we understand fact and fiction while working with found footage or personal archives? How do we conceive of time in a medium through which time can jump between years and decades. Award-winning duo DISTRUKTUR will present DISRUPTIVE FICTIONS, a screening of four films followed by an artist’s talk.
Join the Berlin-based filmmakers and co-founders of LaborBerlin, an artist-run film lab that incorporates experimental practices in their creative processes. This event is part of Peripheral Intuitions’ two-week residency at the NIGHT EMBASSY, and is open to the public: Get your tickets below.
MELISSA DULLIUS (Porto Alegre, 1981) and GUSTAVO JAHN (Florianópolis, 1980). Live and work in Berlin 2006. Together they form DISTRUKTUR.
Distruktur’s work moves across the borders between art and cinema, experimental and narrative, photography and moving image. Displacement and transposition happen as strategies to produce transformations, giving form to unstable narratives. Combining fiction and personal archive, symbols from different times and places are found and fantastically rearranged.
They started making films in 1999, first on Super 8 and later on 16mm. After moving to Berlin, where they co-founded the artist-run film lab LaborBerlin, they started incorporating experimental practices in their creative process.
Besides directing and producing they are also active as actors, musicians and lab technicians.
Distruktur’s work takes shape as films, installations, film performances, photography, text and graphic.
