Loraini Alimantiri, director at Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative will participate in Positions at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.
The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, founded in 1954, is one of the oldest short film festivals in the world and one of the major international platforms for the short form. With Positions, curated by Filipa Ramos, Oberhausen is introducing an experimental programme format designed to establish a critical discourse on how artist films are collected and exhibited. Museums, private collections and galleries will present selected works, on the basis of which the criteria will be discussed that govern which works and artists are collected and represented here, as well as how they are presented. “Positions” thus refers both to the works themselves and to the institutional conditions under which they are made accessible to the public. The programme format examines individual decisions and the institutional logic behind them
Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative is a non-profit organization that aims at raising environmental awareness through a unique art programme. Its collection, one of three areas of activities, is based on special commissions mainly of moving image art inspired by environmental, sociological and philosophical issues.
