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.
