JUNE 07: ES WIRD IMMER BESSER #3 - COLLABORATION
Reading, screening and talk with Daniel Hoesl and Timo Feldhaus
hearing the term “collaboration” people quickly think of cooperation
with an enemy. But collaborative work does not need to be opportunistic.
The stage director Daniel Hoesl, formerly assistant stage manager to
Ulrich Seidl, has founded an association for this purpose: The European
Film Conspiracy. They collaborate to develop films: following “Soldate
Jeannette” (2013) their new project now is “WINWIN”, the film about the
Panama Papers. As editor of Spike Art Quarterly, Timo Feldhaus has
designed the online presence of the magazine and deals with
collaborations of a phenomenal nature between art, lifestyle and
fashion. How do we want to collaborate? “There is no risk.” (WINWIN)
Within the framework of the focus on the future relating to the debut of Reinhard Jirgl’s “Nothing of You on Earth” and Alexander Giesche’s “Yesterday You Said Tomorrow”, the mini-series “It is Always Getting Better” presents four sequels of contemporary artistic positions where the future is examined as a space of possibilities. What could be different? And how?
