Passageways are usually long and narrow spaces that connect one place to another. We usually go through them emerging from a physical exercise, a mental gymnastic or a biological process. In all states, the body is central to the experience.
We extended our invitation for this 4th edition of The Compiler Screenings to ShanghART Gallery from Shanghai giving a focus to productions from China mainland and Switzerland. ShanghART video library was established in 2008 and includes 600 contemporary video art works. They hosts salons and screen-shows regularly in Shanghai. Our guest curator Shi Yong proposed to examine the thematic of the body in personal and public spaces through a selection of 7 productions. We responded with 5 Swiss productions compiling this year’s edition.
We are also extending the invitation to Giuseppe Di Salvatore and Ruth Baettig from filmexplorer.ch. They will moderate the evening proposing to view the selected 12 films and videos in three screening blocs.
