The Surface Tension Series

Filmvorführung und Gespräch mit der Regisseurin als Finissage der Ausstellung "Homosexualität_en"
in englischer Sprache The Surface Tension Series (D 2011–2015), Liz Rosenfeld (D/S), TRT 1:05:25
German film premiere & talk with Liz Rosenfeld, moderated by Marit Östberg The trilogy focuses on four female artists (Frida Kahlo, Anita Berber, Hannah Höch, and Leni Riefenstahl) who lived in Berlin during the Weimar Era (1919–33). These films work with experimental strategies of non-linear storytelling, through queering classic film genres such as the silent film making of the 1920s, public television documentaries of the 1970s and the iconic form of the home movie, shot on hand-processed 16mm film. It embraces anachronistic strategies of storytelling, filtering history through the lens of queer experience and relationships in present-day Berlin. The work questions the reliability and usefulness of nostalgia and of re-enactment, as well as examining the means by which radical personal history is made.  Admission free
