Video Art - privatized Ideologies

Fri 4/5 16:15,

The old order is dead, long live the new confusion. The video art program, presented for the first time at Docaviv, will include four works on the dissolving border between video art and documentary film. The world of old ideologies has been razed to its foundations and the video works presented here rise up in that empty space. Each offers a disturbing metaphor, referencing the past and undermining the present.

The following films will be screened:

marxism today (prologue)

Artist Phil Collins shines a light on what is generally perceived as the losing side in the political and social upheavals of the past two decades.

Echo

In the work “Echo” , Evron addresses the history of the Israeli textile industry. The video is comprised of television archival materials that document the protests and rallies of the "ATA" workers against the closing of the Kiryat Ata factory in 1985.

The Fable of the Bees

The Fable of the Bees is a 1705 poem by Bernard Mandeville which presents the counter-intuitive argument that so-called vices such as egoism or greed stimulate social prosperity, whilst altruism or honesty result in collective atavism and disinvestment.

After the Crash

Notes on the economy of gravity.
