Residencies, screenings, exhibition, publication; 2020/2021

With Pilar Quinteros, Uriel Orlow, Puck Verkade a.o. Initiated and curated by Benedikt Wyss & Samuel Leuenberger. In cooperation with Atelier Mondial, Kunsthaus Baselland, and Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK. Supported by Christoph Merian Stiftung, Swisslos-Fonds Basel-Landschaft, Ernst und Olga Gubler-Hablützel Stiftung, and Dr. Georg und Josi Guggenheim-Stiftung.

«Terra incognita – Explorers Film Club» takes place in a former industrial freeport, in the city of Basel, Switzerland. The so-called Dreispitz (german: tricorn) extends over fifty hectares. Until a few years ago, large parts of it were inaccessible for eighty years as a duty-free zone and are therefore «undiscovered». For the period between February 2020 and June 2021 four artists are invited to reside in the Dreispitz for one month, to develop a new video/film work, and to present it in a screening on site. These happenings are followed by an exhibition, which includes a «log book», appearing with the video app Primo Print in motion streaming film stills as videos to smartphones. The «Explorers Film Club» is accompanied by ZHdK sustainability research investigating how aesthetic education generates democratic participation and how actors gain access to an urban area through artistic work.
