A selection of artists’ film focusing on materiality. German-based Karin Sander (b. 1957) loops a 1930s reel, where the stains and scratches on the original celluloid bounce like the child’s ball in the footage.

POV (2015) by Portuguese artist Igor Jesus (b.1989) captures a speaker plummeting from the sky as the landscape unravels around it, while EUtopia (2015–16) tracks the contours of an oil painting by Bosnian artist Igor Bošnjak (b.1981) as if it were another planet.

Karin Sander is selected by Video-Forum (n.b.k.); Igor Jesus by MAAT; Igor Bošnjak by The Cultural Centre of Belgrade.
