Events | la > x – Exhibition and Film Festival

Berlin | September 12, 2017 – December 2, 2017

To mark the 50-year city partnership between Berlin and Los Angeles, film curator Marc Glöde and collector Axel Haubrok are putting together a film festival and exhibition under the name la > x which focuses on artistic viewpoints from los angeles.

The kick-off event for la > x is the exhibition opening at FAHRBEREITSCHAFT on September 12, 2017, with works from Margaret Honda, Stephen Prina and Christopher Williams.

The film festival, curated by film scholar Dr. Marc Glöde will be shown at the kino arsenal – institute for film and video-art from 10 am to 10 pm with works by Edgar Arceneaux, John Baldessari, James Benning, Morgan Fisher, Alex Hubbard, Rodney McMillian, Sarah Morris, Ryan Trecartin and Jennifer West. The program also shows Berlin and LA as sister cities who despite their differences, look back on a long and broad film tradition, reaching from mainstream-cinema to artistic experimental films – which are the main focus of this program. The film presentations will be complemented by discussions surrounding the topic „statements and projections.“

At 9 pm, the concept artist, filmmaker and musician Stephen Prina will bring the program to an end with a concert on the cinema stage

The admission is free. This was made possible with the support from Regierender Bürgermeisters von Berlin – Senatskanzlei, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e.V., the office of taylor wessing and Haubrok Foundation.
