Between 1965 and 1968, artist and designer George Maciunas put together
a collection of film loops that he called the "Fluxfilms Anthology." A
group of about 20 experimental shorts, they were intended to be
screened as films and as backgrounds to performances. Maciunas was the
organizer and driving force behind the artist collective known as
Fluxus. Their publications, performances, instruction works and
objects were mainly produced in the 1960s in New York, but included
events and collaborations in Europe and Japan.
"Fluxfilms, especially when taken in context with other Fluxus
performances, insisted on gradual deconstruction not only of the
various components of the cinematic apparatus, but of cinema itself.
After eliminating the projector, there is nothing left but the
screen.... With the traditional movie space eliminated, the viewer
'generates' his or her own screening situation.... Finally, the viewer

Treibsand [Volume 01], contemporary video art from Teheran
Curator Susann Wintsch presents the DVD Treibsand with contemporary video art from Teheran.
TREIBSAND [VOLUME 01] «Analysing while Waiting (For Time To Pass)» sheds light on contemporary and emerging art in Tehran, concentrating predominantly on an analytical stance in times of waiting. Waiting for the future may be expressed as yearning or depression, or it may appear as a long, protracted period in which past and present are analysed in depth from a personal and post-colonialist viewpoint. The concept has been drawn up in close collaboration with Parastou Forouhar (Frankfurt am Main/Tehran).

Curated by Aurora Picture Show and Jon Rubin
Imagine a city that you've only seen in reproductions or perhaps have merely heard about. A place, like many others, that exists only through rumors, stories, novels, the nightly news, magazines, movies, and the Internet. Using these secondhand clues as firsthand research material, invited worldwide contributors-who have Never Been to Houston- will photographically document (without leaving home) what they imagine
For the contributors to this exhibition, the task is to search through their daily life for clues to a foreign place, for the possibility that somewhere else exists right under their nose and that, like some clunky form of astral projection, you can travel to other lands without leaving home. For viewers in
In the end, Never Been to Houston is an experimental, virtual travelogue to the city that the New York Times opines "refuses to assume a simply identity."
