Cinema presents films and videos by Austrian and international artists, submitted by galleries participating in viennacontemporary. Developed and curated by Olaf Stüber, the format will this year explore artistic self-representation in film and video.
Self-portraits are perhaps as old as art itself. Once it was a realm reserved to painters and sculptors. With postmodernism, the classical definition of the self-portrait broadened and artists no longer just paint or sculpt images of themselves – they perform and intervene in front of an audience and the camera. They stage themselves, turning their actions, their ideas, and often also their lives into content.
In a world of social media and selfies, everyone makes a portrait of themselves everywhere, and seems to expose everything about themselves. The main focus is the statement of the artist as a subject against the backdrop of a society increasingly based on self-referentiality.
From many interesting proposals by galleries, Olaf Stüber selected works by Olaf Breuning, Barbara Hammer, Klemens Krauss, Simon Mullan, Fang Lu, Tova Mozard and Claudia Larcher, among others, and compiled them into a highly anticipated program. The program will be on display daily in the Cinema during viennacontemporary, 22-25 September.

On Preview day, 21 September 2016, Olaf Stüber will present video and film works by Austrian students, which have been collected through an open call. The initiative thereby endows a younger generation of artists with the opportunity to present their artistic visions to an international art audience.
There will also be a Cinema Talk on the topic “Has the Market Failed?” (Saturday, 24 September 2016, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm, Talks area) with the curator of Cinema, Olaf Stüber, collector and entrepreneur Alain Servais, Dr. Markus Hannebauer, collector and Managing Director of think-cell, Berlin, and Carlos Duran, founder of LOOP Barcelona and Galeria Senda, Barcelona.
Cinema is made possible with the kind support of the Austrian Federal Chancellery.
