The 14th Forum Expanded is moving to a new location: The silent green Kulturquartier will open a new Berlin exhibition venue and the big group exhibition will be the inaugural event. The 1600 square meter Betonhalle on the grounds of the former Wedding crematorium will soon serve primarily as a venue for film and video exhibitions, as well as for concerts and conferences. The group exhibition will be expanded into Ebensperger Rhomberg Gallery and Luxoom Lab, spaces also located on the silent green grounds. Around 14 – 16 film, video- and sound-installations as well as performances will be presented.

In an era when moving images are omnipresent, media transgressions, if they can actually be called that nowadays, are determined by other parameters. The tension between art and cinema seems to have mainly dissolved, and instead we meet each other in mutual echo chambers. What we find in this year’s Forum Expanded programme reflects, above all, the changed relationship between the moving image and life as it is lived. A mythological theme – the song of the Sirens and the Odyssey – is transposed into a present that is just as much characterised by migration, displacement and the shadow of colonial history, as by the affective feedback loops that we are exposed to, not only in the social media. ANTIKINO investigates ways out of the echo chamber.
