Dreispitz: Explorers Film Club, 2020/21


Artistic research on urban metamorphosis: Residencies, screenings, publications, exhibitions, 2020/2021

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

In its recent history, the Dreispitz has been a largely sealed-off industrial area and duty-free zone for over eight decades. Since a few years, the area of more than fifty hectares is in a transformation to a more mixed place of work, learning, art, life, encounter. This metamorphosis is the subject of the artistic research at the Explorers Film Club: Between spring 2020 and fall 2021, the Explorers Film Club invites six artists to each spend a month at Dreispitz to then show a new film at a location of their choice, which will represent their personal, free reflection on what they have experienced. Puck Verkade started – with the video «Cursed» in the club Elysia. Up next are Deborah Joyce Holman and Yara Dulac Gisler, screening a series of new videos in an old warehouse, and Pilar Quinteros and Patricio Blanche with a small exhibition in the Salon of Atelier Mondial.
