(Matt Wilken’s TEXTURES)
We are proud to present a diverse lineup of Off the Screen! salons, installations, and performances to complement the upcoming festival’s cinematic offerings. These events are free and open to the public. Bryan Konefsky presents High-Fructose Cinema and the Movie Industrial Complex: Radicalizing the Technology of Representation in a Domestic Kind of Way, a live performance built out of Konefsky’s years as an essay filmmaker. Gerry Fialka interconnects Theo Anthony’s Rat Film with psychogeography. Peter Rose’s ongoing installation explores his experimentation with “six-dimensional video.” The docu-fiction media installation i am also We by Razan AlSalah and Hyun Wook Seo presents a series of three video works on settler colonialism, displacement, and the intersectionality of the Syrian, Palestinian, and indigenous American struggles.
