JUPP, WATT HAMWER JEMAHT?

In the course of beuys 2021. 100 years of joseph beuys JSC Düsseldorf shows the feature film JUPP, WATT HAMWER JEMAHT? by Jan Bonny & Alex Wissel. This is a hybrid of film and theater production, the stage setting of which can also be understood as a space-consuming installation.

In the midst of the film scene, Joseph Beuys appears again and again as a ghost of the past.

 

Among others with Joachim Król and Bibiana Beglau.

The screening takes place every Sunday at 4 p.m. in the JSC Düsseldorf cinema (basement).

 

 

Jan Bonny (* 1979) lives and works in Cologne.

BEUYS 2021:
LUTZ MOMMARTZ
SOCIAL PLASTIC

JSC Düsseldorf presents the 16 mm film Social plastic (1969) by Lutz Mommartz. The film is the filmmaker's homage to his artist colleague who died in 1986 and who is still known today for his confrontational political and artistic stance. Beuys did not shy away from arguments and came into direct contact with his audience. Social plastic shows this in the form of a filmic portrait in which Beuys ’face can be seen. His eyes fix the audience with a camera view that appears endlessly in a loop.

 

The screening takes place every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the JSC Düsseldorf cinema (basement).

 

Lutz Mommartz (* 1934) lives and works in Düsseldorf. The experimental filmmaker's work is currently being shown in a major retrospective at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.

With a new videoMOUTHLESS(2020)

 

Rituality, mythology, historiography and the relationship between man and nature are at the center of the new video workMOUTHLESS (2020), which is laid out as a folk horror story. In terms of content, the video work links historical traditions of witch trials in the Swiss region of Friborg with Eastern European folklore, magical rites and contemporary healing practices. On view are documentary recordings of a performance with several readers, animated sequences of abstract shapes and landscapes, as well as scenes shot in the forest. Based on the artists' research on "witchcraft" as a transhistorical and transcultural practice, isMOUTHLESS as an attempt at a solemn evocation and communication with the disabled and the deceased - whether human, animal or plant.

OPENING: JEREMY SHAW - QUANTIFICATION TRILOGY

September 3, 2020, 4 p.m. - 9 p.m.

 

Jeremy Shaws Quantification Trilogy includes the three parafictional short films Quickeners (2014), Liminals (2017) and I can see forever (2018). The thematically and temporally interwoven works tell of marginalized communities in a future after “The Quantification”. Through a scientific discovery, all parameters of transcendental experience have been empirically recorded. For this vision, Shaw draws on the aesthetics and visual media of the 20th century and brings together stylistic elements from cinéma vérité, ethnographic film, conceptual art and music video genre in order to make the viewer aware of the authenticity of what has been seen and to open up critical perspectives on systems of power. The Quantification Trilogy unfolds along the areas of counterculture, evolution theories, virtual reality, neurotheology, esotericism, dance, the representation of the sublime and ideas of transcendence.

Love is the Message, The Message is Death (2016) is a seven-minute video made of found footage and self-made material, backed by Kanye West's gospel-inspired hip-hop track “Ultralight Beam” (2016). The work brings together a wide variety of images through which the artist approaches the American black identity. Love is the Message, The Message is Death illustrates Jafa's ability to recognize media representations and strategies, to question them and to reappropriate. It reveals the pain, resilience, and beauty of American black culture.
