A Collective Memory: A Process of Construction in Constant Deconstruction
With Marianna Liosi, Kaya Behkalam, Sami Khatib & Azin Feizabadi
5th Oct. 2015 at HKW Berlin
In a choreographed and sometimes accidental setting, Azin Feizabadi examines the notions of ‘Translation’ and ‘Projection’ based on his film practice within the long-term project “A Collective Memory” (2009–ongoing). Marianna Liosi (researcher & curator, co-initiator of Regarding Spectatorship, Berlin), Kaya Behkalam (filmmaker & visual artist, Berlin/Cairo) and Sami Khatib (Walter Benjamin scholar, American University Beirut) react toward this endeavor by taking it into other realms, projecting upon it, as well as deconstructing and reconstructing it.
Feizabadi’s latest film CRYPTOMNESIA (73min, 2014, G) celebrated its Berlin premiere after the four talks.
