2020-10-07/19:00 - 21:00

Kaunas Artists’ House (KMN) continues the programme “Mocuments” for the dissemination of video art and films analysing the construction of different realities.
 
Attention. Registration is required to attend the events: http://bitly.ws/9Qse
The films of the “Mocuments” programme seek to problematize the concepts of artificial reality, film editing, technique and narratives, unmasking the illusions of objectivity and thus approaching the honest image of reality – as diverse, inconsistent, often disappointing and even disgusting.
 
The second cycle “Archive Administro” will delve even deeper into the methods of using archives and directly provide examples of how collective archives can become part of new ways of retelling history by finding a different relationship to historian macro narrative.
 
On October 7th at 7 p.m. Berlin-based curator, Naomi Hennig will show
a selected programme of two video art films. Artist Shelly Silver’s “Former East / Former West” (1994, 62 min., German with English subtitles) and Anna Zett’s video art piece “Endarchiv” (2019, 18 min., German with English subtitles). The films will be followed by a discussion with curator Naomi Hennig and video artist and curator Gerda Paliušyte. The discussion will be held in English.
 
October 14 7 p.m. – Swedish artist Emanuel Almborg’s film “Talking hands” (2016, 48 min., Russian, English with Lithuanian subtitles for deaf or hard of hearing). The film will be followed by a discussion with the artist. The discussion will be held in English and translated to Lithuanian sign language.
 
The project “Mocuments” is a part of the extended Kaunas Artists’ House programme “Unlearning Eastern Europe”. In the course of the programme, the aim is to rethink the problems specific to the (Eastern European) region – from the traumas of the historical past, the possibilities of decolonization to the strategies of memory politics or activism.
The programme is supported by the Lithuanian Film Centre
