Daily from 6pm till dawn. Again we will screen a huge selection of experimental films from all parts of the world, covering a wide range of artistic positions in the new media.

curated by KIKA NICOLELA
total running time: 75 min.
The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among artists from all over the world, inspired by the Surrealist creation method, the “Exquisite Corpse”. Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists’ game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final seconds of the previous member’s work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone’s vision is threaded together into an instigating final “corpse.”
While the Surrealists are said to have created the method almost a century ago, only recently could such a fast-paced, pan-global, audiovisual variation of this exercise be produced. The inspiring process of exchange among ‘strangers’ from around the world illuminates the possibilities of globalized, collective creativity.
The project is coordinated by Brazilian video-artist, Kika Nicolela. In the first Volume of the project (2008), 9 videos were created in collaboration by 36 artists from 16 countries. For the Directors Lounge 2011,
the curator selected 5 videos from this volume.
