Artists' Film Biennial: Selected by curator Hanne Mugaas

27 May 2016

A screening programme selected by Hanne Mugaas, director and curator of Kunsthall Stavanger in Norway.

Starting in the late 1990snear the twilight of the single channel broadcast erathe works in this screening explore the joys and terrors of being an artist. Simultaneously, the videos aim to provide one possible narrative of how artists have represented themselves using the conventions of television (newscasts, lazy chairs, public access documentaries, comedy), and how these conventions changed and splintered with the dawn of the online era.
