Welcome to the 8 minute Autumnal Picnic in the Past (2019)

Curators: Barbara Borčić and Peter Cerovšek
SCCA-Ljubljana, 2019
Duration: 81’
Premiere: Alternative Film/Video Festival, Academic Film Center, Belgrade (13. 12. 2019)

The environment crisis can be perceived and interpreted in an essentially abstract form or, on the contrary, it can be put in its rough and painful concreteness. When these two possibilities meet in this programme, the real space becomes obsolete and media space-time arises. The future and the past become one, which is the cinematic experience in the universal blackness of the screening hall. Like there is no white without black and no silence without noise, there is also no beauty without a dump and no nature without people, no organic without mechanical/technological.

The programme consists of eight works by eight artists that address the topic of environment in many different dimensions and artistic approaches, ranging from the 1990s until today.
