Aceasta selectie de filme contine lucrari realizate de Josef Dabernig intre 1996 (Wisla) si 2005 (Lancia Thema). Filmele pot fi citite ca o naratiune compusa din mai multe straturi suprapuse, care nu converg neaparat catre un sens explicit, ci lucreaza mai degraba cu tensiunea generata de contradictiile lor interne. Scenariul este construit intr-un mod similar interventiilor de arhitectura minimala si structurilor modulare concepute de Josef Dabernig, dupa o metoda riguroasa care organizeaza miscarile camerei, ritmul si actiunile, incluzind in acelasi timp in mod deliberat imperfectiuni, absente si derapaje. Personajele realizeaza gesturi obisnuite, familiare, reluate obsesiv, insa repetitivitatea lor are un caracter fragmentar si marcat de rupturi.      
(Florin Tudor)

Demersul lui Josef Dabernig se compune uneori ca o arheologie personala a modernitatii. Afiseaza o admiratie pentru utopic si rational, dar manifesta in acelasi timp o placere evidenta pentru disparitati, incongruente si ratari in interiorul structurilor ideale pe care el le concepe. E semnificativ ca, in pofida pretentiilor de universalitate, el concepe modernitatea ca fiind eterogena si marcata de contradictii. Admiratia pentru formele si structurile rationale tipice modernismului, mergind uneori pina la obsesie, se combina la Dabernig cu o atitudine distanta si ironica.  
(Igor Zabel, 2003)

This film selection presented now in Bucharest contains works done by Josef Dabernig between 1996 (Wisla) and 2005 (Lancia Thema). The films can be read like a layered narrative of different contexts, not necessarily explaining them but working with the tension generated by their internal contradictions. The script is constructed similar to Dabernig's minimalist architecture interventions and grid structures, using rational methods to organize camera movements, tempo, actions - but at the same time considering imperfections, absences or lapses. His characters are performing usual, familiar gestures in a repetitive yet fragmented, disrupted way.
(Florin Tudor)

The work of Josef Dabernig sometimes seems to be a sort of personal archaeology of modernity. It displays an admiration for the utopian and rational, but also a certain pleasure at gaps, mismatches and failures in such ideally conceived structures. It is important that he sees modernity as marked by contradictions and as heterogeneous in spite of its claims for universality. Admiration for the rational forms and structures of modernity and a certain obsession with them are always combined with an ironic and distanced attitude.    
(Igor Zabel, 2003)
