DOUBLE FEATURE

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
Römerberg, Germany

The Schirn Kunsthalle has been a forum for German and inter­na­tional film­makers and video artists for more than four years. In keeping with the motto “Double Feature,” the artists present a work from their oeuvre and a film of their choice to the audi­ence on the last Monday of each month.

Following their presen­ta­tions, they offer deeper insights into their art and their cine­matic inter­ests in an inter­view with series cura­tors Katha­rina Dohm and Matthias Ulrich. Since the advent of digi­ti­za­tion and tech­nical simpli­fi­ca­tion, film has long since been consid­ered an inde­pen­dent art form and a central compo­nent of contem­po­rary art as an element of multi­media instal­la­tions.

RATHER THAN PRESENTING THE WORKS AS OBJECTS IN AN EXHI­BI­TION ROOM, “DOUBLE FEATURE” CREATES A CINEMA-LIKE VIEWING SITU­A­TION THAT FOCUSES SOLELY ON THE SCREEN.

“Double Feature” serves as a plat­form for a wide range of different currents and modes of expres­sion in artistic film and video produc­tion and for the compar­a­tive presen­ta­tion of familiar and less well-known posi­tions. The Schirn has already included more than 50 artists in the “Double Feature” series, for example, Ed Atkins, Nevin Aladağ, Luke Fowler, Melanie Gilligan, Heather Phillipson, Anri Sala, and Timur Si-Qin. Screen­ings by Eli Cortiñas, Beat­rice Gibson, Mélanie Matranga, and other artists are planned for 2017. Exten­sive inter­views with the artists have been posted online on the Schirn’s YouTube channel since October 2016.
