Beirut Art Fair: Video Projects – Body Politics

18-21 September 2014, Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Center (BIEL), Beirut

exhibition body politics

Silke Schmickl curated this year's Video Projects at Beirut Art Fair 2014. Body Politics is a programme consisting of 16 art films from the Middle East, North Africa, South and South East Asia that explores how contemporary artists comment on current political and social issues by means of their own bodies or those of others. Ranging from video art to experimental cinema, documentaries and performative experiences the selection highlights how the individual can react to the bigger and rigid body of our globalized societies by exploding conventional production modes and viewing patterns. Through personal, ironic and poetic approaches the artists invent a new visual language and take us on a colourful cinematic journey that reintroduces a notion of humanity.
