CULTURETV NEWS

Our playlist of this week presents the new site-specific installation by
Ne
w York-based artist Jon Kessler,especiallly created for P.S.1 in NY.
Refere
ncing issues relevant to contemporary society; including politics, war,
adv
ertising, propaganda and surveillance. KesslerB4s work thrusts the viewer

directly into a complex visual experience. Though sources of inspiration
an
d information are varied and include reality television such as "The
Swan" 
,kabuki and "Apocalypse Now".

The Unseen Video, from Daniel Scheibel & Ferdinand Weinrother (D).A
weather
 controlled, dynamic music video for Mike Milosh's - You Make Me Feel.
The 
Unseen Video is much more than a normal, static music video. It is a
video 
that is affected by the weather and local time from the position of the
vie
wer.

Also this week we show you works made by one of the new Chinese artists
Zha
o Bo is from Chongqing, Sichuan province in south-central China. Zhao Bo
ha
s captured this life on the streets - the clash of communist and
capitalist
, east and west, the ridiculous, the sly, the ludicrous and the
overwhelmin
g feeling that everyone is on the make.

The video and photo installation Relax by Ralph K&auml;mena. The starting
p
oint of Relax is the utopian lay-out of a Vinex district (i.e. a new
housin
g estate on the outskirts of a town): the idea that an environment could
be
 invented on a drawing board. Relax is a work in progress, in which the
art
ificiality of the Vinex architecture will be connected with the intimacy
of
 homely interiors in a lyrical way.

Last week we already announced the first video of a serie from Valentina
Ni
si. The Media Portrait of the Liberties concerns the development,
productio
n, and interactive delivery of multiple short stories about the Dublin
Libe
rties community.

The famous filmscene and song of Gene Kelly has been translated by Peter
Wi
lliam Holden into an installation/ballet. Autogene is made of 8 umbrellas
i
n circle which dance to the sound Singin' In the Rain.

Hope you will enjoy the videos.
