20 May 2016
A short film programme curated by John Canciani and Aline Juchler (Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur). We present a dialogue between the first generation of Dadaists alongside Dada's contemporary authors.
With the newer works screening in response to the original Dada films, we ask whether contemporary filmmakers evoke the spirit of Dada. Do their films simply exhibit formal similarities or do they come from kindred spirits? Following the selection, we discuss the dialogue between the original Dadaist films and their contemporary counterparts, as well as delving into the reasons why Dadaism was originally created, and why in today’s political climate, filmmakers, curators and audiences alike still see Dadaism as relevant. The panel includes Juri Steiner (Curator, dada 100, Zürich), Aline Juchler (Curator, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur), John Canciani (Artistic Director Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur) and is chaired by Gareth Evans, (Journalist and Curator, Whitechapel Gallery)
The screening runs for approximately 70 minutes, followed by the panel discussion.
