Blind, is a complex, humorous, and original drama that follows a woman writer who retreats to the safety of her home, having recently lost her sight. But soon her fears take over and she holds on to reality not to lose her mind. Blind is an original film with a surreal atmosphere, sparse dialogue and humour, not just on seeing and blindness but also on solitude and writing. “How does one show blindness on film? The most obvious would be to let the screen go black, to let the viewers orientate themselves with sound. (...) For me, it was often about limiting the visual input by isolating a detail or holding an image longer. This is the key to the film’s form and style for me. And blindness, paradoxically enough is in and of itself, very filmic; it contains the most fundamental aspects of film: to see and be seen, light and dark…” – Eskil Vogt

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
