The performance “AFTERMATH” is a film of cinematic memories about a man in trouble that will be shot in a single day with the participation of the audience in the public space. The performative shooting of the movie will be narrated from an almost autobiographical perspective, evoking the memory of scenes from films that left their mark on the collective imagination. A version of this project, shot in Stuttgart-City as part of the PÖBELN II festival, will be part of the exhibition in eindorf.
The exhibition will also show a selection of new animations for adults, and the sculptural paintings used to create them, under the name „MY FAVORITE THINGS“.
„AFTERMATH“ was filmed within the framework of the PÖBELN II Project and supported by the City of Stuttgart. „MY FAVORITE THINGS“ is a project supported by BMKOES.
The event „AFTERMATH & MY FAVORITE THINGS“ in eindorf was Friendly supported by the Stadt Wien through the MA7 and the 15th Bezirk
