Press release


Antikino (The Siren’s Echo Chamber)

Coco Fusco, Laura Horelli, Karrabing Film Collective, Mpumelelo Mcata and Perivi Katjavivi, Paul McCarthy and Damon McCarthy, Shelly Silver, Catherine Sullivan, Evan Calder Williams and Anne Low, Ala Younis


This year’s theme ANTIKINO (THE SIREN’S ECHO CHAMBER) questions contemporary systems of valorization in cinema, and proposes to discuss the changed relationship between moving images and lived life. A mythological theme – the singing sirens and the Odyssey  – Is transposed into a present defined by experiences of migration, displacement and the shadows of colonial history as much as by affective feedback loops in social media. ANTIKINO explores multiple ways of leaving the echo chamber.

Among the selected artists are Coco Fusco, Laura Horelli, Karrabing Film Collective, Mpumelelo Mcata and Perivi Katjavivi, Paul McCarthy and Damon McCarthy, Shelly Silver, Catherine Sullivan, Evan Calder Williams and Anne Low, as well as Ala Younis.

An exhibition of Berlinale Forum Expanded at silent green Betonhalle, Galerie Ebensperger Rohmberg, and Luxoom Lab.
