The monthly Double Feature sees itself as a plat­form for various trends and forms of expres­sion in film and video art produc­tion. For more than six years, the SCHIRN has invited national and inter­na­tional film and video artists to present a work from their own oeuvre, followed by a film of their choice. In conver­sa­tion with the cura­tors Katha­rina Dohm and Matthias Ulrich as well as guest cura­tors, they provide a compre­hen­sive insight into their creative work, and in partic­ular into their interest in film.

Films and video works by over 60 artists have already been shown at the SCHIRN. In 2019 the public can look forward to contri­bu­tions from artists including Liv Schuman, Pedro Barateiro and Mario Pfeifer.

The videos and conver­sa­tions with artists who have partic­i­pated so far, including Monira Al Qadiri, Bianca Baldi, Eli Cortiñas, Gery Georgieva, Beat­rice Gibson, Andrew Norman Wilson, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Ani Schulze, Timur Si-Qin, Paul Spenge­mann, Pilvi Takala, and Holly Zausner, can be accessed via the SCHIRN’s YouTube channel under the title “Double Feature Conver­sa­tions.” The SCHIRN MAGA­ZINE also regu­larly provides discur­sive contri­bu­tions with an edito­rial focus on video art to accom­pany the Double Feature series.
