PARALLEL SCREEN  / DEHORS LA DANSE

In collaboration with Sixpackfilms

Sasha Pirker and Lotte Schreiber’s camera sits on its stand. It records, in black and white, the details and interiors of a building. It draws games of lights and shadows, perspectives for the eye, convergence lines and points of concentration. Most importantly, the camera is a reminder of Walter Benjamin’s essential assessment: a city is to be visited using not only sight but also touch.
