Still from A Paradise Out of A Common Field | HD CGI film | Commissioned by RTE Shine Your Light Art Commissions 2020 for Illuminations Gallery
A zombie that refuses to lie silent in the dirt, a road between Jerusalem and Jericho that an algorithm cannot navigate, a political dance that builds a resistance. Taking place across HKW’s Westgarten and the garden at silent green, transmediale out of doors brings together film, music, performance and talks that engage with the aesthetics and politics of refusal. By addressing opposition to state power, apolitical interfaces and network bias, the program explores the forces of refusal that tie to tenderness, care, joyful dissent, late nights and dirt.
