Playfulness | Running time 65′
In this program the intelligence, wit, and humor of artists such as Turner Prize winners Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Price, Martin Creed, and Laure Prouvost will be punctuated, among others, by the brief digitally animated paintings of Hayal Pozanti and the slapstick human sculptural intervention of Wood & Harrison.

Armchair Surfers | Running time 60′
The artists in this program place a mirror in front of us – the Armchair Surfers of the 21st century – to explore the impact of an all-encompassing digitized world on humanity. In these works humor, titillation, coolness, memories, self-absorption and otherwise quirky reflections merge with our daily consumption of social media.

Ex-Romance | Running time 64′
Charles Atlas has been a pioneering figure in film and video for over four decades, working with some of the most seminal, groundbreaking choreographers of our time, such as Michael Clark and the late Merce Cunningham. In this program, Atlas’s film Ex- Romance (1986) will be paired with a special 2014 Miami-edit of Wipeout XL by Parker Ito, heightening the common ground between the artists’ incongruous interests – from Tarot to foot-fetishes.

The Digital Revolutionaries | Running time 67′
Co-curated by the artist Tabor Robak and David Gryn, this program will address the unearthly reverberations of the Internet, gaming, and digital magical-realism. The evening will conclude with a tribute to the seminal filmmaker Harun Farocki, whose work Parallel II (2012) examines the uncanny visual world-making of digital gaming.

Radio Ga Ga | Running time 62′
Radio broadcasting – the audible transmission of information through radio waves – is a powerful medium that has long influenced human events. Concepts of radio and waves will be explored in this program, bookended by works that draw from broadcasts that go unnoticed, such as Bill Balaskas’ cobbled together news bulletins and Susan Hiller’s translations of radio frequencies emitted by the Big Bang.

The Night of Forevermore | Running time 65′
The Night of Forevermore focuses on artists who employ cinematic and theatrical tropes: Ciprian Mureşan reconsiders Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí’s Surrealist classic Un Chien Andalou (1929) through the blockbuster animation Shrek (2001), while Jose Dávila applies his signature cutout method to Sergio Leone’s classic Spaghetti Western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966).

Rites of Spring | Running time 62′
From historical positions, such as Babette Mangolte’s 1978 collaboration with dancer Trisha Brown, to recent works such as Rashaad Newsome’s 2014 KNOT, this program will explore the radical implications of dance. Both Miami-based artist Dara Friedman and the Canadian-born Marcel Dzama were inspired by historical dance pieces: Igor Stravinsky’s ballet Rites of Spring and Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet. Five short animations by the young Greek artist Rania Bellou will punctuate the screenings.

The Magic of Things | Running time 70′
This program is inspired by and will feature Mark Wallinger’s The Magic of Things (2010), a video of edited scenes from the popular 1970s TV sitcom Bewitched, in which everyday objects such as knives or glasses are magically moved by the good witch Samantha. Films with a similarly playful approach will be presented, interspersed with hand-drawn animations from the Japanese artist Atsushi Kaga.
