Arsenal, Kino 2

At the 12th International Forum of New Cinema in 1982, Ingo Kratisch was represented by two films – as a cameraman on Harun Farocki’s “Etwas wird sichtbar” (Before your Eyes – Vietnam) and as director and editor of LOGIK DES GEFÜHLS (Logic of Emotion) (Screenplay: Jutta Sartory). In a poetic text, Cäzilia Gall writes: “The main protagonist is Georg, lovesick, for whom there is nothing more to portray. People, whom he meets. They are like extras on the empty planks of his heart: ‘The Traveller’, ‘The Poet’, ‘The Lover’, ‘The Gambler’, ‘The Deranged One’, ‘The Man in the Port’ and others. And the plot: “What happens? Nothing much. […] Where is it set? In an in-between space, between lost love and a coming love. Winter. Berlin. 1981. Anna has separated from Georg. Silence.”

Starring Farocki as “The Deranged One”.

After all the buzz and clamor caused by the 2019 re-opening of the extended MoMA and the much celebrated rehang of its permanent collection, N+1 publishes a sobering curatorial fantasy (by Claire Bishop and Nikki Columbus) on what should have been done instead to come to terms with the “outrageous disconnect between saying and doing at this museum—the brazen hypocrisy and superficial multiculturalism.”

You have probably watched Ricky Gervais yesterday’s Golden Globe speech already, or read about it, so this is not exactly news to you. Still, it deserves mentioning and posting, particularly if you haven’t seen it yet, notwithstanding all its shortcomings. If simply for the fact that Gervais here shows a welcome (and rare) structural, dialectic, and pretty pitiless understanding of

a) his own debatable role at the ceremony and in the industry as such;
b) the game-shifting changes in the media industry caused by monopoly digital streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon, Apple;
c) the necessity to (once again) question the public performance of the political amid the liberal Hollywood establishment;
d) the systemic contradiction between “progressive” media content (“quality TV”) and the outrageously destructive economies and technologies on which this content and its providers gleefully rely;
e) the blatant inconsistency in the actions of the media industry people when it comes to not only complaining about racism but actually fight it;

and much more…
