Two years ago, Arsenal launched a translocal experiment: The “Visionary Archive“ project, funded by the TURN fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, correlates research processes in Berlin, Bissau, Johannesburg, Cairo and Khartoum.

About

It explores future perspectives in contemporary, transcultural, curatorial and artistic work with archives and archival research. The partners are: the Arsenal with its film collection, the Cimatheque – Alternative Film Centre (Cairo), the independent cinema The Bioscope (Johannesburg), the estate of film-maker Gadalla Gubara (Khartoum) and Geba Filmes association (Bissau). From May 21 to 31, the participants will come to Berlin to provide insights into the material they aredealing with, to present results, and to discuss unresolved questions with invited guests and the public. A closing event with many open ends, the “Visionary Archive” Festival presents film screenings, work in progress presentations and three workshops at the Arsenal cinema, exhibition displays and curators’ talks at the project spaces Scriptings and Archive Kabinett. All events are in English, film languages may differ.

With films by Ahmed Bedjaoui, Jean-Pierre Bekolo, David Bensusan, Charles Burnett, Assia Djebar, Tobias Engel, Haile Gerima, Gadalla Gubara, Med Hondo, Lennart Malmer, Chris Marker & Alain Resnais, Tonie van der Merwe, Sana na N’Hada, Pape Seck, Ousmane Sembène, Luis de Witt u.a.
