FOUNDLAND COLLECTIVE - ‘Real-Time History’ (2018, 22’)

+ Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee - ‘My Crush was a Superstar’ (12’) & ‘The Spokesman’ (12’)
+ Harun Farocki - ‘The Expression of Hands’ (1997, 30’)




'Real-Time History' is an on-going research project, based on subjective, image based analysis of a small selection of Youtube videos which are thought to provide important future evidence related to the Syrian conflict. The primary source of Youtube videos are sourced from a web platform called Syrian Archives (www.syrianarchive.org) which according to their website is “a Syrian-led and initiated collective of human rights activists dedicated to curating visual documentation relating to human rights violations and other crimes”. 'Real-time History' investigates how subjective video material can form evidential material and how it can be read and interpreted.


+ Film of choice: 'My Crush was a Superstar' (12’) & 'The Spokesman' (12’) by Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee

Bottled Songs is a series of video letters exchanged between Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee, investigating desire, power and terrorism in online and social media. My Crush was a Superstar and The Spokesman are two results of the project. The videos, recorded from the artist-researchers’ desktops, depict and interrogate their subjects’ compulsive engagement in the production of everyday myths and fictions about themselves and others.


+ Film of choice: 'The Expression of Hands' (1997, 30’) by Harun Farocki

Historically, the cinema close-up was initially employed to convey emotions through facial expressions. But soon filmmakers also began focusing their attention on hands. Using film extracts, Farocki explores this visual language, it's symbolism, Freudian slips, automatisms and its music. Often, hands betray an emotion which the face tries to dissimulate. They can also function as a conduit (exchanging money) or witness to a form of competence (work).
