Watching & being Watched

I look in the mirror and see myself. I look through the camera and see someone else. I look at the camera, what do I see? Using these three parameters, the films in this program can be sketched, the central theme is the staging of the self or the other. Kren and Muhr portray the travesty artists Dame Edna and Lucy McEvil while Scheirl / Pürrer celebrate the lusty costume in a punk music video from a private perspective. The gaze of Heller, who is filming through the glass window of a coffee house in New York and thus opens up different perspectives, is simultaneously directed outwards and inwards. Anzengruber and Petschnig, on the other hand, put their own sexualized body on display, questioning partly fetishized variants of the self. Then Steyerl embarks on a multi-faceted search for a detail of her biography, namely bondage photographs, for which she posed as a model in 1987. (ds)
