14 texts for the future of art education and nomadic academy 1/14: Happy new year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 FROM THE NOMADIC ACADEMY

Last year has been been a wonderful year for us, starting with Art´s birthday performances via Skype between Paris Cité International and Helsinki (program curated by Jarkko Räsänen). In 2014 no Skype, but a great combination of performers in the same place, same day - this time coordinated by Jenni Markkanen (http://www.artsbirthday.net/, check our small Helsinki event from the Schedule 2014, not far away from the new location of The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts). In 2014 there will be the fifth edition of AAVE Alternative AudioVisual Event festival with both international and domestic guests. In Harakka island we started a new concept of events starting from midday and ending at midnight. The first event was Godard & Gorin Midday-midnight event (Dziga Vertov Group films and three wonderful talks). Strangely enough, when being again in Paris (it´s all Paris now) I couldn´t help noticing that Palais de Tokyo opening hours were midday-midnight...

In these days people are remembering the events of the previous year. Instead of going back in time my thoughts seem to wander more in the recent days and in the future. Since my real interest lies in moving image, I will reflect my thoughts on what I see the most interesting field of study and research concerning it in the next year(s).

I saw a small part of Chris Marker retrospective in Pompidou Centre before Christmas, including the films also by other artists that he had some connection with. One of them was "Demi-tarif", a narrative film about three abandoned children in the big city directed by Isild Le Besco (France, 2003). It was about the experience and the energy from their perspective, when they were living in their apartment without the adults. Because of the absence of the parents, the children invent stories i.e. about their mother visiting the apartment at night but leaving early to work. "Demi-tarif" succeeded in showing how the everyday social formations taken as granted can be fragile and how any group develops it´s own survival methods. Marker has compared the film to the experience upon seeing Jean-Luc Godard's "À Bout de Souffle" for the first time. In it´s use of the everyday locations, improvised "raw" acting and cheap dv camera the film was also a reminder of the 16mm practice in "Mala Noche", the first film by Gus van Sant and dv camera method used in different Dogme-films of the 1990s.

In "Demi-tarif" the camera and the rhythms of editing remained close to the senso-motorical movements and their reactions and emotions on the moment. The other direction taken in the festival´s film selection was the personal and political film essay. In his own film and video essays Marker is a personal and poetic voice, a quiet listener and a kind observer, looming friendly behind the construction of the myth of the self and the subject, memory and death - often with the images of the cat and the owl by his side. But in the new understanding of images and their power on us we need other artists, not only dedicated on the passing moment, the memory that we so desperately try to grasp but more to "the parliament of images" themselves. Retrospectively and contemporarely we need both Marker´s contemporarians and filmmakers / artists from the next generations of political essay-oriented filmmaking (Straub/Huillet, Jean-Luc Godard, to Haroun Farocki and Hito Steyerl and eventually the artists finding their energy from Post Internet or "neuro-image" condition in understanding where we are now. And there are always generations in-between, like Zanzibar group of the 1960´s or the contemporary remodernist movement.

In Helsinki the year ends with new beginnings. In the course Leviathan (about big things and small things) we have started a conversation about the new attitudes, appearing i.e. in the gallery & screening works "Finnish Pavilion" by Jaakko Pallasvuo & Kimmo Modig and "Raami" by Jenni Markkanen. These works are questioning the cynicism of the art world and introducing new attitudes on artmaking and the whole social play around it and other cultural venues engaged in the production of "the new". Post Internet culture had it´s artistic research moment in the performance "Screening Days - This has been flagged as spam - Point of view / Point of access- Lecture" by Juha Forss in TeaK. This 6 hour show consisting of Youtube-VJ:ing was an amazing - and sometimes frightening - dive into the new factory of images (self-images, manic mapping of the world, real-life war situations etc.). Of the new feature-length fiction films the movie "Salpa" (The Latch) by Zagros Manuchar seemed was a fresh return to a new simplicity which engages us in the world created around a fictional character.

All of these recent ´proto-territorial´ works are showing us that the immaterial images are coexistent with the material bodies and images in such a way that you can´t separate them from each other because the material world around us is covered with images - which "matter". There is no return to the modernist concept of modernist concept of authenticity but it is as clear that there is also a strong absence of postmodernist irony and "false images". Following Henri Bergson´s old formula we know that the material world is made of (moving) images alltogether. In addition to this we are always making and manufacturing new points of views, images of the world and of each other.

During the following year(s) Nomadic Academy will explore how the ways of expression and control (senso-motorical sensibility, worlds of memory, participation in the social world and the realm of images) are existent and realised in the contemporary situation (of art(s)). In this the collaboration with such organisations and institutions like Helsingin Elokuva-akatemia, Art School MAA, The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts etc. will be important, along with other institutions, organisations and groups. We hope to continue collaboration in the form of the events, courses, workshops, reading groups and discussions now and in the future.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 from Nomadic Academy

    Zagros Manuchar (b. 1990) is a filmmaker born in Iraqi Kurdistan. Manuchar, who moved to Finland as a refugee in 1994, got interested about filmmaking at the age of 14 and his first independent feature film Upstream was produced in 2006, followed by the award winning short film Point of View a year later.

    Alongside directing Manuchar has also acted. His eight years in the theater world lead him to roles in Finnish TV-series and commercials.

    Formerly focused on mainly stories about racism and youth, Manuchar has in his new film For this moment still, taken a step towards more abstract and ambiguous narration.

VIRVATULET '13: PIILOSSA - NÄKYVISSÄ Malmitalolla

Ala-Malmin tori 1, 00700 Helsinki, Finland
 
Esitys torstaina 31.10.2013 klo 18, vapaa pääsy. Virvatulet on vuonna 2011 aloitettu suomalaisen videotaiteen koostesarja, jonka kuratoivat vuosittain AAVE-festivaalin perustajat Ivan Punzo ja Kari Yli-Annala. Jokainen kooste saa perinteisesti ensi-iltansa AAVE-festivaalin aikana, jonka jälkeen se pääsee maailmanlaajuiseen levitykseen AV-arkin kautta.

http://www.kinokaiku.com/

VIRVATULET '13: PIILOSSA - NÄKYVISSÄ
Sisältää kuusi videoteosta, yhteiskesto 42min

2013 vuoden koosteen teemana ovat piilossa olevat asiat. Ulu Braun sijoittaa 1920-luvun dadan ja surrealismin hengessä esoteerisia kohtauksia Berliinissä sijaitsevaan kylmän sodan aikaiseen kuunteluasemaan. Outi Sunilan teoksessa joukko sotilaita erkanee metsässä toisistaan. Anssi Kasitonni kuvaa ihmishavaitsijalta huomaamatta jääviä seuraamuksia ja yhden ihmeen. Maija Saksman näyttää mennen ajan maalaistupaan tunkeutuvan kauhua herättävän käsivarren. Jan Ijäs dokumentoi kahta luonnolliseksi osaksi maisemaa naamioituvaa "saarta": toinen niistä on ollut maailman suurin kaatopaikka, toinen yhä käytössä oleva hautuumaa tuntemattomille kuolleille. Tommi Matikan supersankarit elävät tietokonepelielämää omassa todellisuudessaan afrikkalaisen kylän kattojen yllä - kunnes peli päättyy.

1. ULU BRAUN: TOWER OF INVINCIBILITY (2012, 16min)
Tower of Invincibility is a pseydo-melodramatic film about the advancement of a sports and health camp in the deep forest of Europe. It introduces us a utopian setting in form of a building complex; half cathedral, half geodesic dome surrounded by nature. The camera follows its protagonists during their daily routines: weight lifting, acrobatics, telepathy, celebrations… and witness how they are emerging from day to day.

Finally the followers of the "Tower" are released and start to mingle with the population. The film was shot at the Teufelsberg in Berlin; a listening station of the U.S. Army during the Cold War (1957-91). The Maharishi Foundation, along with Director David Lynch, bought the terrain in 2008 for building a 50 meter tall "Tower of Invincibility" and a "Vedic University" of Peace for 1000 students. After public scandals the building law was denied.

2. OUTI SUNILA: PLATOON (2012, 8min)
Joukko sokeita sotilaita vaeltaa metsän poikki ryhmänä, kunnes väistämättä erkanevat omiin suuntiinsa, haparoiden tietä pimeydessä.

3. ANSSI KASITONNI: BUTTERFLY'S EFFECT (2013, 9:05)
Perhosvaikutus näyttäytyy perhosvaikuttamattomuutena tässä pienessä elokuvassa. Tämä on ennenkaikkea tarina kohtalosta tai sen olemattomuudesta. Elokuvassa tapahtuu myös yksi ihme.

4. MAIJA SAKSMAN: ÄLÄ KOSKE (2012, 2min)
Älä Koske museoissa tai…

5. JAN IJÄS: TWO ISLANDS (2013, 5min)
Elokuva kertoo kahdesta valtavasta kaatopaikasta New Yorkissa. Staten Islandilla sijaitseva Fresh Kills oli aikoinaan maailman suurin kaatopaikka ja pitää sisällään lähes kokonaisuudessaan länsimaisen teollistumisen ja kulutuksen historian. Hart Islandin 18 hehtaarin kokoiseen joukkohautaan on haudattu arvioiden mukaan noin miljoona New Yorkin nimetöntä asukasta. Mitä nämä kaatopaikat kertovat sivilisaatiostamme, ja millaisen perinnön ne jättävät tulevaisuuden arkeologeille?

6. TOMMI MARTIKKA: SMALL HEROES (2013, 2min)
Pienet supersankarilapset juoksevat ja lentävät Dakarin kattojen yllä. He eivät kuitenkaan hallitse kykyjään kovin hyvin ja päätyvät aina putoamaan maahan. Lopuksi peli päättyy ja ruudulle ilmestyy vilkkuva “GAME OVER” -teksti. Videon äänet muistuttavat videopelien musiikkia.

Short 16mm films for children - welcome!

Pigs in a Polka
Thursday 26.9.2013 18:00

THE KIDS IN THE SHOE (dir. Dave Fleischer 1935, 7min)
kids_in_the_shoe_poster
The old lady who lives in a shoe has a bit of trouble with her gaggle of children. "For wasting your bread, it's off to bed!" yells the old woman, who ties ropes to her rocking chair to accommodate all the kids at once! As soon as their mother's in bed, they launch a wild party, playing musical instruments and doing a swinging rendition of Smiley Burnette's classic "Mama Don't Allow No Music Playing Round Here." 

PIGS IN A POLKA (dir. Fritz Freleng 1943, 7min)
Pigs in a Polka is a one-reel Technicolor animation in the Merrie Melodies series, produced by Leon Schlesinger and with musical supervision by Carl W. Stalling. The film is a parody of two Walt Disney films: 1933 Three Little Pigs and 1940 Fantasia. The familiar story of the three little pigs is set in this film to Brahm´s "Hungarian Dances" No.5, No.7, No.6 and No.17. It was nominated for the 1942 Academy Award.

LE BALLON ROUGE (dir. Albert Lamorisse 1956, 34min)
The film follows the adventures of a young boy who one day finds a sentient, mute, red balloon. It was filmed in the Ménilmontant neighborhood of Paris. It won numerous awards, including an Oscar for the best original screenplay in 1956 and the Palme d´Or for short flms at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. Lamorisse used his children as actors in the film. His son, Pascal Lamorisse, plays Pascal in the main role, and his daughter Sabine portrays a little girl.

.......................................................................

VILKE COLLECTION (short intro)

The VILKE Collection of Finnish electronic art founded by FixC Cooperative comes into being on a celebratory year. In 2013 it has been 50 years since the exhibition Exposition of Music – Electronic Television (11.3 – 20.3.1963) by the “Pope” of video art Nam June Paik.

The objective of the VILKE Collection is to bring together works that were central in their time, works in which the idea, structure or action is essentially linked to the applied technology. Consumer electronics and high technology used by industry together with obsolete technology buried in the sands of time are wired into our lives and memories in ways that electronic artworks utilise, vary and bring to life from a new perspective. The VILKE Collection reinstates many of these works of art that have fallen outside museum collections and the official canon of Finnish art history.

One of the first video installations in the history of Finnish electronic art is Philip van Knorring’s Bevakat (“watched” or “under surveillance” in Swedish) from 1977, a statement about public camera surveillance, indicating how artists were interested in considering the social and political effects of new technology. The beginning of the 1980s saw the bloom of a new mode of making which was characterised by the use of different kinds of small-scale industrial communication devices. In the 1990s the new generation was interested in the phenomenological aspects of time and space and social situations. Many of VILKE artists worked also in the collective of Helsinki Film Workshop, founded in 1989. The artists share the same ethos as the alternative musicians working at the same time. Jimi Tenor shot in 1995 an experimental documentary on 16 mm film about the artists of record company Sähkö (“electricity”), a company founded by Tommi Grönlund. The tone of the film is similar to an ethnological film: attentive and respectful of the work being done.

Both the pioneering strategies of the early internet culture and the newer "post-internet" mentality are presented in the collection. Juha van Ingen’s Web Safe Colourscape (1999–2000) is one of the few Finnish works that uses an internet browser as a central piece of the work. In Vantaa (2007), Erkka Nissinen creates a particular and unique post-internet aesthetics of his own. Demoscene group MFX’s work Cannapaceus (2008) is a rich computer animation that is processed in real-time. 

If the abstract epic lyricism of Cannapaceus nearly propels the viewer to another planet, Laura Könönen’s The Only One and All (2011) transports the onlooker far into the history of our home planet. Könönen’s work is comprised of a record player and a rotating record made of granite, the principal stone type of Finnish bedrock, which is traced with a diamond needle. The voice of the stone is dusty and discontinuous, speaking from experience far older than the technology that is used to play the sound for us to hear.

The inclusion of electronic and media art into the praxis of making art has created new challenges to preserving art. An internationally adapted strategy is to “update” works to a new technological standard at specific intervals, for instance every ten years. However, many works are media specific, made with a specific device of a specific period. Digitalising an analogical video, for example, can change the nature of the work radically. The works in the VILKE Collection are not only preserved in accordance to digital standards, the intention is to exhibit them in their original presentation form whenever possible.

The collections of private collectors, institutions, museums, organisations and foundations form an important part of cultural memory, and the public display of collected works makes it possible for a larger audience to get to experience them. The works in VILKE Collection remain in the artists’ possession, but they can deposited with museums for an appointed period of time. With the creation of the VILKE Collection, FixC Cooperative is turning a new page in preserving and exhibiting Finnish electronic art's history.

The exhibition includes also five brand new 50-channel monitor works (which will be shown during the exhibition one by one in 50-monitor structure build for this purpose) by FixC artists Maria Duncker, Juha van Ingen, Seppo Renvall, Jarkko Räsänen and Kari Yli-Annala

ITAF2013 - International Teletext Art Festival 15.8.-15.9.2013

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Arthur C. Clarke

ITAF - International Teletext Art Festival ARD Textissä (Saksan  
valtiollinen TV), ORF teletextissä (Itävallan valtiollinen TV), Swiss  
Textissä (Sveitsi)

ITAF on suomalaisen FixC -taiteilijaosuuskunnan ja ARD Textin, ORF  
teletextin ja Swiss Textin yhteistyönä toteuttama taidehanke, jossa 16  
taiteilijan Teksti-TV -formaatissa toteuttamat teokset  ovat kuukauden  
ajan esillä ARD Teksti-TV -sivuilla Saksassa, Itävallassa, Sveitsissä  
ja lisäksi näyttelyssä ARD Haupstadtstudion näyttelytilassa  
Berliinissä. Toista kertaa järjestettävän ITAF-festivaaliin tutustui  
viime vuonna ARD Textin sivuilla yli  540 000 katsojaa ja tänä vuonna  
järjestettävä festivaali on on Teksti-TV:n 30-vuotisen historian  
suurin taidehanke.

ITAF2013 on myös mukana Ars Electronica festivaaleilla. Ars  
Electronica on Linzissä Itävallassa vuosittain järjestettävä yksi  
maailman merkittävimmistä mediataidefestivaaleista.

Tänä vuonna kansainvälinen raati (Paul B. Davis, Rosa Menkman ja Voin  
de Voin) jakaa International Teletext Art Prize palkinnon, jonka saa  
yksi osallistuvista taiteilijoista. Lisäksi annetaan yleisölle  
mahdollisuus äänestää omaa suosikkiaan.

Vaikka Teksti -TV:n retroestetiikka näkyy nykyään voimakkaasti  
visuaalisessa kulttuurissamme mm. animaatioelokuvissa, webbi-sivuilla,  
graffitissa ja graafisessa suunnittelussa, niin Teksti-TV:llä  
itsellään on vielä paljon annettavaa taiteellisen ilmaisun foorumina.  
Teosten toteuttaminen oli osallistuville taiteilijoille  
mielenkiintoinen haaste, koska Teksti-TV-formaatti vaatii tekijältään  
erityisen editorin käyttöä, eikä esimerkiksi piirustusten, valokuvien  
ja videoiden siirto sellaisenaan onnistu Teksti-TV:seen.  
Taiteilijoiden ponnistelut palkittiin ja lopputuloksena saatiin hieno
