Pera Film’s Forms and Politics of Yugoslav Experimental Film program brings together lesser known films made by artists in socialist Yugoslavia between 1963 and 1987. Sezgin Boynik, the curator of this program, will further discuss and contextualize the specific conditions of experimental filmmaking in socialist Yugoslavia and Eastern Europe, the historical and social situation in which they were produced.
This quest for new language through abstraction is the red thread of the program. How to read abstraction politically? In which way, can we trace the inscription of the concrete world into abstracted imagery? In what way the abstraction of the 1970s corresponds to our contemporary situation? Following these questions, we will try to understand the relationship between the inner forms of art and the logic of the outside world. It is this precise question that the program wants to ask and try to actualize with references to the actual situation of political art practice.
Free of admissions, drop in. This event will take place in the auditorium. The talk will be in English with simultaneous Turkish translation.
The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
