Merchants Freely Enter Screening and artist talk with Ani Schulze
In her installations, films, and drawings, Ani Schulze (*1982) creates visual worlds in which history and stories are not told in a conventional manner, but rather encircled in dreamlike images. For example, abandoned architectural structures or cultivated landscapes are scanned by means of a camera and then slowly revealed in her films in the form of rhythmic sequences. With the places she shows, Schulze explores the (failed) utopias of modernism as well as the relationship between man and nature. She examines social developments both past and present using the latest media technology, such as drones, as well as visual formulas and pictorial traditions drawn from landscape painting or comics.
As part of the lecture series AUS- & VORTRAGEN, Ani Schulze will show the work Aerial Vortices (2015) and her latest film Merchants Freely Enter (2017), which was created during her artist residency at Schloss Ringenberg. Within this context, she will speak about forces of gravity, bird’s-eye views, camouflage, Robobirds, picnics, cornfields, and surveillance panoramas.
The lecture will take place in German. Please note that the event will be filmed.
Admission €4 / concessions €2. Free for members.
