This November Zofia nierodzińska and Arsenal Municipal Gallery invite D’EST: A Multi-Curatorial Online Platform for Video Art from the Former “East” and “West” (2018-2020) to Pawilon. In collaboration with fifteen international curators, forty-three artists, and other cultural experts, D’EST maps out artistic forms of historiography on a post-1989 world, especially from the perspective of female and collective production. On Saturday November 24th, 2018, D’EST screening chapter #5 We Are Family will be launched by its curators Nataša Ilić and Jelena Vesić in conversation with respondents and audiences from Poznań.
Entwining autobiographical, historical, and fictional narratives, We Are Family speaks about generational, personal, and political frictions, about rifts and entanglements unfolding in the dystopian context post-1989. The notion of family appears as an extended signifier. It overlaps with differentiated fields: social, communal, intimate, personal, and political. The relationship between four figures maintain this tension – that of the Guest, the Mother, Love, and the Other.
Free admission. Language of the event is English with consecutive translation into Polish. All videos are available in both languages: English and Polish. From November 26th onwards, chapter #5 will be accessible online for all registered users.
