What codes, what intersections connect to the social network of our time? How can art and culture help us to better understand the impact of our actions on the fragile ecosystem in which we live? The exhibition is an invitation to sharpen our senses and sensibilities in times of uncertainty: to observe carefully, to listen and feel, but also to dream, imagine and remember, in order to betake ourselves together across the threshold into another time in which we recognize ourselves as part of a complex constellation of interdependent relationships.

1983, lives and works in Santiago de Chile, Chile. Is an independent media artist and manager of educational projects in art and technology. Since 2006, she has developed a proposal around the notion of materiality in analogue and digital technological supports, with procedures for sound installation, electronics and engraving. González Godoy addresses the behaviour of materials in time and their manifestation in the dimension of sound. Her work, both as an artist and professor, reflects on the idea of ​​technology – be old or contemporary technological supports – where the approach to the materialities suggests problems associated with technological development and the effects on our natural and artificial environment.

Reform or revolution? Reform and revolution? The question as to the right way to achieve fundamental social change fails again and again when it comes up against the reality of systems of power. Nonetheless, people resist isolation, overcome borders and come together to act collectively and fight for their rights. The four films by Emanuel Almborg, Johannes Gierlinger, Ane Hjort Guttu and Grace Passô illuminate this space of the possible with reference to different settings and experiences of social crises, political protest and resistance. They represent a cross-section of the Umbrales film programme curated by Florian Wüst, which will be on show in January 2022 in the ifa Gallery Stuttgart.

Die vergangenen Zukünfte (Past Futures), Johannes Gierlinger, AT 2021, 98'
info (+)

Die vergangenen Zukünfte (Past Futures) is a political and poetic reflection on the nature and effects of revolutions. An exemplary starting point for this essayistic film is the March Revolution of 1848 in Vienna. What remains of a revolution? When is it considered to have failed and when and how are its achievements manifested? Johannes Gierlinger combines historical struggles with today's forms of resistance and reflects on how the practice of collective memory inscribes itself in the present of a city and the actions of its residents.

República, Grace Passô, BR 2020, 16'

In República (Republic), a captivating short fiction written, directed, and performed by Grace Passô, a house becomes a strange theatre. It is the pandemic house during the 2020 COVID-19 quarantine. Shot entirely in domestic space, located in São Paulo’s downtown neighbourhood República, the film alludes to the lived experience of social distance and isolation, and to the possibilty of making something "public" again—in a country going through an ethical crisis which is further enforced by the necropolitics of its colonialist government.

The Nth Degree, Emanuel Almborg, UK 2018, 51'

For The Nth Degree, Swedish artist Emanuel Almborg initiated an exchange between young people from Hackney, London, and Mid Powys, Wales. Through theater workshops inspired by Konstantin Stanislavski’s method of acting, they developed a play that connects two historical moments: the Rebecca Riots, a peasant revolt against privately owned toll gates and enclosure of the commons in 1840s Wales, and the more recent London riots of 2011. The exchange between the two groups fostered an understanding of the riots, framed by attendant issues like race, class, and inequality.

This Place Is Every Place, Ane Hjort Guttu NO/SE 2014, 17'
info (+)

This Place is Every Place consists of a staged dialogue between two Swedish women of Middle Eastern origin. The Arab spring is a backdrop for their conversation, which takes place in the suburb of Tensta in Stockholm, and the film puts forward a connection between the global protest movements and the May 2013 riots that emerged in Husby, another northern suburb of Stockholm mainly inhabited by ethnic minority groups. This Place is Every Place studies the relationship between political and personal crises, pointing to a widespread lost faith in alternative social organization.
