Blickle Kino Programme

The central aim of the Blickle Kino at the Belvedere 21 is to encourage public discourse between film and cinema, art and science. It engages in debates about the history and future of the moving image in the context of the image and media culture of the 21st century. Together with its partner, the Ursula Blickle Stiftung (foundation), the Blickle Kino has set itself the task of integrating contemporary film and video works into a film and art historical context, thereby drawing attention to interconnections and historical parallels.


Blickle Archive Series
This series of individual screenings and compilations will present new arrivals and existing holdings of the Ursula Blickle Video Archive, which currently comprises some 2,800 works. The artists will be present at the screenings, when they will discuss their work and answer your questions.

Sasha Pirker, AUT 2011, 5 min., without dialogue

With her film, Sasha Pirker tells a short story about the Belvedere 21 (formerly known as the “21er Haus”). A moment is captured on film, and fragments of materiality become visible in a single shot. The moment gradually becomes clear, and is inscribed in the history of the house. It addresses the past and the future. The film celebrates this one moment – with light and sound. The light clears the way for possible associations and for the essence of film itself. (Sasha Pirker)
 
Rollerball
Norman Jewison, USA 1975, 125 min., English with German subt.
Director: Norman Jewison; camera: Douglas Slocombe; editor: Antony Gibbs; art director: Robert Laing
With James Caan, John Houseman, Maud Adams, John Beck, et al.

Rollerball takes place in a post-apocalyptic society that has eliminated poverty, epidemics, and racism. Megacorporations and their shareholders, who seemingly act only for the benefit of the community, manage the nation together with a supercomputer named Zero. To quench the hunger of the masses for real war, “rollerball” was invented, a mixture of roller skating and wrestling reminiscent of ancient gladiator fights.
The cult status the film has achieved in architectural circles results from the elaborate exterior shots: the general “power management” center is set in the actual BMW headquarters designed by Karl Schwanzer in Munich, while the old BMW Museum serves as the oval library building in the film.
 
Followed by a talk with Sasha Pirker and guest curator Lotte Schreiber.

Fanni Futterknecht’s artistic practice links performance and video art.  Futterknecht stages tableau-like situations and performative visual elements; hovering between sculpture and design, they dominate the stage on equal footing with the actors. Her use of language is defined by theatricality and play in an attempt to define topics inherent to art. In An Object with a Sharp Beginning as well as in Across the White, the figures are distorted and the performers masked, as they are culturally coded forms of behavior and aestheticisms that are literally "exhibited": "Actors and props equally occupy a white surface, a white space, animating the whiteness which neutralizes diversity" (Andreas Spiegl). In her latest performative works, Futterknecht examines the individual in relation to the group. She addresses common grounds, isolation, value systems and power structures through minimalist acts and text references, thereby making them visible and transformable.
