Contemporary Art Ruhr

毎年ベルリン国際映画祭と同時に同じ会場で開催される、Directors Loungeが、ドイツのエッセンで開かれるContemporary Art Ruhr (Media Art Fair)にブースを出すそうで、そこで私のPassagesが展示上映されることになりました。Directors Loungeは実験的・前衛的な映像を世界中からセレクトして上映する組織です。たぶん。

Directors Lounge In Gear For C.A.R.
From Berlin straight out to the Ruhr, home to Germany’s concentrated multi-millions and “contemporary art ruhr,” a concentrated display of all that is here and now (and beyond) in the world of media art. C.A.R. spreads its considerable wings regularly, reaching a global tally of urban art-zones, but invites to its home turf in this bi-annual gathering of innovative thinkers. Directors Lounge has become a regular-as-clockwork contributor to the more daring summer fair, exporting its international imports and making the trip in person to see visitors through its specially curated melange of onscreen marvels. The flicks selected join of a temporary world of razor-sharp installations, performance, photography and more, fodder for the wide-awake mind. With contributions from DL partner Cross Art (Zurich-Berlin) and more, a feast of film awaits at World Heritage Site Zollverein in Essen. Directors Lounge cordially invites you to electrify your senses.
