ICNOVA no OUT OFF NATURE – Artists’ Film Sessions

O ciclo de filmes de artistas “Out off Nature”, com curadoria de Sara Castelo Branco, investigadora do ICNOVA, e de Hugo de Almeida Pinho, para o Arsenal – Institut für Film und Videokunst em Berlim (DE), decorre nos dias 7 e 8 Junho às 17.30, e apresentará obras de Ali Cherri, Pedro Neves Marques, Louis Henderson, Ben Thorp Brown, David Kelley e Patty Chang, e Mariana Silva.

“Out off Nature” procura abordar emergências contemporâneas decorrentes do uso massivo da tecnologia e do seu impacto nos ciclos metabólicos do planeta. A selecção de filmes interpela o impacto ambiental das novas tecnologias através da integração massiva de matéria mineral nos seus principais dispositivos; as ligações entre o uso de recursos naturais e modelos sociológicos, económicos e políticos do hipercapitalismo; novas visualidades e modos de representação trazidos pelo antropoceno; ou, as relações entre preservação, herança, temporalidade, ecologia e trabalho. A entrada é gratuita.

OUT OFF NATURE

According to the philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, the technological dominion over the organic life has become the operational motif of Mankind in a process of “supplantation” and “supplementation”: a system where technology is built from raw material found in nature, while at the same time it changes severely the natural world. The screening sessions OUT OFF NATURE tackle this reality by asking two questions that – facing movements of endogenous or exogenous order – have become relevant in understanding our natural and technological contemporary condition: how does Earth’s geological materiality define the technical culture of media by the integration of mineral matter in some of its main devices?; And, how these same devices have been shaping our contemporary ways of seeing by raising new visualities and modes of representation brought about by the anthropocene? 

By focusing on some contemporary emergencies arising from the massive use of technology and its impact on the metabolic cycles of planet, this film selection addresses the environmental impact of the new media and its use of natural resources; the links between land resources, value systems created with European colonization and sociological, economic and political models of hypercapitalism; the historical and perceptive construction of gaze in a visual landscape dominated by the screen; the mass extinction of animal species in relation to image-capturing practices and scientific systems of visual depicting natural habitats; or, the relations between preservation, heritage, time, ecology and labour.
