SALT Beyoğlu, Walk-in Cinema

Possibilities of escape. The construction of outsides. That which cannot be seen.

Taking the form of a curated video program accompanied by introductory presentations, HERE AND ELSEWHERE, which is organized in the context of the research project “One day, everything will be free…” consists of six individual video screenings presented over six days. Including videos by Öyvind Fahlström, Medium(h)avare, Lutz Dammbeck, Jean-Luc Godard, Allan Sekula and Noel Burch, and the filmmaking collective Ahooha, the selection of works in this program variously engage with the legacies of the counterculture movement of the 1960s, open-source culture, cybernetics, neo-luddism, passive resistance efforts, and community living projects.

In an attempt to stage two things together without an explicit goal to reconcile or compare them, Caleb Waldorf, and Joseph Redwood-Martinez will introduce each video by way of short presentations layering historical, cultural, and personal narratives addressing escape, withdrawal, strategic separatism, and the human strike.

Along these two registers, HERE AND ELSEWHERE will provide a platform in the Walk-In Cinema for considering cultural obsessions with the possibility of an outside in relation to the implications of these scenarios where the price of everything effectively drops to zero–where crowdsourcing is the new outsourcing and everywhere is elsewhere.
