TRUST - Film programme at Vester Vov Vov #2

TRUST

As part of TRUST, Vester Vov Vov hosts a programme of films. Founded in 1975 by a group of idealists, Vester Vov Vov is Denmark’s oldest working art cinema and has been known for its varied repertoire of experimental art films and documentary films from the very beginning. In line with this tradition, TRUST presents a range of films by Danish and international artists that explore the documentary genre in different ways. In the intersection of fact and fiction, the films focus on collaborative processes, art in public spaces and architecture, as well as political themes such as territorial conflicts and migration.

In 2012 the Greek artist and curator Angelo Plessas initiated the project Eternal Internet Brother/Sisterhood. The project takes place annually in different locations around the world inviting artists, authors, curators, designers, and researchers to meet and develop projects and ideas together. This film gives an insight into a creative and artistic symposium exploring the spiritual side of technology by experimenting with Internet culture and online concepts. The meetings take place in historic surroundings where the Internet is usually on stand-by. The different editions of the project have until now been held on the Greek island of Anafi, in the Surrealist garden Las Pozas in Mexico, and by The Dead Sea on the West Bank of Palestine.

In the beginning of the 1990s the artist Martin Kippenberger initiated the project Metro-Net based on his visions of a metro system that was to connect the entire world. In collaboration with his close friend, the Austrian architect Reinald Nohal, he began to build a series of sculptures in different cities that represent entrances to this fictional subway. One of these was built in Dawson City, Yukon in 1994 and with departure in the creation and reception of this specific sculpture, Zin Taylor investigates the story about the Metro-Net project through an interview with Reinald Nohal.
