Past and Present Utopias - Utopien Gestern und Heute
Depictions of Utopia are past visualisations of the future, even
with today’s speeded-up technical and social transformation of
urban life. The highway A18 localized in the old steel districts
of Germany was - at the time it was built - an utopian project
that became reality. What is being considered as inhuman today,
the joint public and individual traffic in one axis through
residential and commercial areas was back then the most advanced planning of its time. Maya Schweizer and Clemens von Wedemeyer, on The other hand, find imagery almost identical to Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis in Shanghai. On a visual level, they ask about the meaning of this reappearance of past futuristic visions. The pictures Clemens Fuetler retrieves from his “image machine”, a model-sized racing track, seem to be equally utopian-real, although the deja vues he is creating, possibly rather relate to the realism of media than to real-life experiences. A brief presentation of Urban Research Institute in Nuernberg completes the program with playful free-will acts in the contemporary city.

In an abandoned, boarded-up and half-demolished old burlesque theater in Boston's Chinatown, the camera trails artist Nicholas Vargelis on his final (illicit) exploration of the ruins- from the basement to the balconies- as he scavenges obsolete light fixtures and photographs the Gaiety one last time before it is reduced to rubble for a luxury condo development.

By transforming the words into kinetic performance the film seeks to expand typographical conventions of published poetry.

Die Grenzen typographischer Richtlinien für Poesiepublikationen werden durch eine kinetische Wortperformance gesprengt.
