|Video screening programme curated by Antje Weitzel and Mirjam Wenzel for CTM.02 - festival for elctronic music and related visual arts.
The dummy term 'pop', which has been appropriated by the most diverse fields and interest groups, forms a loose correlation between the presented video works, in which role models and templates for identification are outlined. In so doing, the works play with the genre-specific repertoire on a level which is less musical and more visual. At its centre stand 'youth-cultural' themes of trend and lifestyle design as well as self-promotion with high publicity value.
The videos access these scenarios, attitudes and rituals. However, they also deconstruct them in a humorous and ironic fashion, by caricaturing the exaggerated stereotypical elements of their production. Simultaneously, this deconstruction does not just comment on the prototypical store of gestures, poses and order of events in commercial music clips but also on the pop business in general.
The programme places artistic videos side by side with music clips and thereby transcends the borders between the various areas and contexts in which music videos are currently produced and received.
The screening program is available for public screenings and festivals. For details see > Terms and Conditions
