Dazibao Montréal – BOOK LAUNCH –
— Entends-tu ce que je vois? Do You See What I Hear?



„Images so that we may hear; sounds so that we may see. A willingness to refine our understanding of the world, to extract from the unique relationship of sound and image a meaning that transcends our initial perception of the whole. As though the incompleteness brought forth by the absence, censorship or obliteration of one sense contributes to the making of sense. As though the essence of the matter resides in unfulfilled expectations, or in the avowed lacunae of several of the artworks brought together here.

Watch, listen more closely to catalyze a sharper form of consciousness and an enduring acuity that permit an ever-clearer reading of things and of this world, which, for the first time in history, is called upon to face its precariousness through an incessantly mediated reality.“

„Feminism/Theory/Film“ –
Center for Art Research, Eugene (USA)

Desert Miracles Still 2

February 28th – March 1st 2019

Dorothee Ostmeier’s paper will focus on short films by female director duo Lina Sieckmann und Miriam Gossing to explore the cinematographic layers that link the films’ documentary agenda to surreal visual montages and poetic feminine voice-overs. Selected films will be placed in dialogue with Timothy Morton’s concept of the “hyperobject.” Can these films be viewed as aesthetic hyperart/hyperexpression? The theoretical framework will highlight the tensions between the films’ powerful aesthetics and feminine queer desire as they decenter socially ingrained dualisms.


Screening as part of the Conference „Feminism / Theory / Film“ at University of Oregon.
Organized by the Department of German & Scandinavian, this interdisciplinary conference hosted at the University of Oregon’s EMU and Center for Art Research buildings in Eugene brings together scholars from the humanities, women and gender studies, cinema studies, and art fields to explore the intersection of feminist film theory and experimental film making since the 1970s.

Guest speakers from the University of Toronto, Princeton University, Goethe University Frankfurt, University of Alberta, and Université de Tours will join researchers from the University of Oregon to discuss the following key topics: video production as feminist action in the 70s and 80s; (sub)urban housing and domestic spheres; transnational, intersectional, digital and embodied feminisms; materiality, memory, perception.

„One Hour Real“ at MuMa Le Havre (Musée d’art moderne André Malraux)

L’exposition Still que le MuMa consacre à la photographe Trine Søndergaard du 13 octobre 2018 au 27 janvier 2019 réunit deux séries de l’artiste. Interiors montre des manoirs inhabités et Guldnakke des coiffes traditionnelles, deux sujets dont la matière documentaire est savamment mise en scène. Ces images, sous influence picturale, entraînent imperceptiblement l’imaginaire du spectateur vers les territoires de la fiction.
Considérons les films de ce programme comme autant de scènes d’une dramaturgie du réel, d’un réel cinématographique augmenté, parsemé de signes, ponctué d’interstices d’où la fiction peut saillir, provoquant un trouble. De quoi les lieux, les gestes, les choses ainsi devenues images animées, sont-ils le récit ?

Programme :
Arianne Olthaar, Hotel Forum, 2016, 9’40
Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann, One hour real, 2017, 12’40

Das Magisch-Reale in den Werken von Gossing/Sieckmann und Erik Levine


24. Mai 2018, 19.00 Uhr,
Haus der Universität Düsseldorf
Schadowplatz 14
40212 Düsseldorf

zu Gast: Miriam Gossing und Lina Sieckmann
kuratiert von Darija Simunovic, M.A.

Die Filmessays von Gossing/Sieckmann wirken durch das subtile Spiel mit der Wahrnehmung und den Sehgewohnheiten des Zuschauers rätselhaft und oft unheimlich. Wie die Werke des US-amerikanischen Künstlers Erik Levine (*1960) beziehen sie sich auf soziale Wirklichkeiten, die in experimenteller Form präsentiert werden. Während Levine seinen Blick auf Situationen aus dem Alltagsleben richtet und dokumentarisches, live aufgenommenes Material verarbeitet, greifen Gossing/Sieckmann auch auf Mittel der Inszenierung und Collage zurück. Beide künstlerischen Positionen verbindet das Herausstellen der Bedeutung der Zugänglichkeit, wobei der Blick auf das Magische, Schöne und oft Übersehene auf den Nebenschauplätzen des Lebens gelenkt wird.

Miriam Gossing/Lina Sieckmann: Ocean Hill Drive (2016), 21 Min.
Miriam Gossing/Lina Sieckmann: One Hour Real (2017), 12 Min.
Erik Levine: Still Lifes (2016), 27:37 Min.




CAPRI BY NIGHT //  Schauspiel Köln


Curated by Lina Sieckmann and Miriam Gossing.

“ The films in the program take the notion of space as a starting point for a diversity of cinematic experiments. Artistic interventions range between subversion, illusion and passivity. Spaces of uneasiness, boredom, flamboyancy and non-compliance. Spaces that do not exist, spaces that are created within editing, spaces reaching out from far beyond. Reshaping the present through a prism of images, the film itself turns into a mystifying architecture.
Spouting, bursting, pretending, shrinking, loitering and absorbing.

Gossing / Sieckmann
