Films by Christoph Schlingensief

parallel film program

In conjunction with the exhibition at BAK, Christoph Schlingensief: Fear at the Core of Things, this parallel program addresses the artist’s prolific career as a filmmaker. Schlingensief began to make films early in his career. Even as his work evolved and expanded into different media, he continued to identify himself primarily as a filmmaker. The films shown in this program provide comprehensive insight into the artist’s filmic world. They exemplify central features of his oeuvre and reveal his radical liberation of the cinematographic image.

The film program is realized in collaboration with Film Theatre ‘t Hoogt, Utrecht and Filmgalerie 451, Berlin.

Stitching, Writing, Singing

Community Portal hosts...

In all continents, people have built matriarchal cosmologies sustained by complex rituals. In the advent of main modern religions and after centuries of colonizing invasions, the goddesses of antiquity were suppressed by the patriarchal structures that consolidated our era. However, they found ways to speak to us in the language of patterns, melodies, and poems. This workshop uses the voice as a method to reveal the presence of goddesses.
