Omer Fast, Filmstill from Continuity

HKW becomes an experimental stage for 18 artistic projects exploring untold stories. The participants present film and sound projects as well as works on exhibition design, radio broadcasting and artistic intervention. The mentors, museum director Tulga Beyerle, curator David Elliott, video artist Omer Fast, musician Holly Herndon, artist Laura Lima and curator and producer Peter Meanwell, will each select a project to accompany. In October, the results will be shown at the Forecast Festival.

The following projects will be presented at Forecast Forum:

The act of looking, rather than simply seeing, implies an actively inquisitive approach. Through art and artistic practices, the three break through contemporary life’s rigidities.
Mentor: David Elliott
With presentations by Anna Ridler (UK), Sarah Naqvi (IN), Abhijan Toto (IN)

Beyond Radio
Participants delve into what radio can be in the digital age: an infrastructure, an artistic medium, and a performance space with the power to connect audiences and across space and time.
Mentor: Peter Meanwell
With presentations by Julia E Dyck (CA), RADIOEE.NET (US, AR), Emiddio Vasquez (CY)

While the three candidates come from different parts of the world, they share a common approach that expands the idea of composition to encompass sound and other aspects of time-based work.
Mentor: Holly Herndon
With presentations by HIBOTEP (ET), Jessika Khazrik and The Society of False Witnesses (LB), MIIIN (KR)

Living Matter
For the three selected artists, everything is matter—whether immaterial phenomena such as the global stock market or traditional African family structures. Their challenge lies in translating living matter into a communicable artistic process.
Mentor: Laura Lima
With presentations by Arthur Ban (BI), Saverio Cantoni (IT), Vanessa Brazeau (CA)

Invasive Design
This category’s projects explore inventive designs that could permeate the museum, an essentially static institution, to reflect the twenty-first century’s complexities and societal changes.
Mentor: Tulga Beyerle
With presentations by Corina Angheloiu (RO), Commonplace Studio (CA, NL), Anais Borie, Aram Lee and Ottonie von Roeder (FR, KR, DE)

Moving Image
Each of the proposals subverts the inherent potential of time-based media to construct narratives, and uses this potentiality to open windows into parallel worlds operating on their own logic.
Mentor: Omer Fast
With presentations by Eliane Esther Bots (NL), María Molina Peiró (ES), Omar A. Chowdhury (AU)
