The Berlin premiere of A Guiding Light, a short film by artists Liam Gillick and Anton Vidokle at Babylon cinema on Wednesday, December 15 at 22:00.

For A Guiding Light, Gillick and Vidokle invited artists Boško Blagojević, Noah Brehmer, Nadja Frank, Shuddhabrata Sengupta, and Danna Vajda, critic Tim Griffin, and curators Anna Colin, and Shama Khanna to consider the curatorial premise of a large scale international art exhibition: the 8th Shanghai Biennale. The artists gathered these eight participants at a New York television studio, and, combining a curatorial text by Gao Shiming with a structural analysis of a 1952 episode of the television soap opera Guiding Light, staged a production that shifts between analysis and self-critique. Captured by several cameras, the film that results preserves the soap opera’s signature stage blocking and cuts, while highlighting the differences and difficulties that we encounter when attempting to capture the potential of art today.

Produced by Performa & Shanghai Biennial.
Editor: Ken Kobland
With: Boško Blagojević, Noah Brehmer, Nadja Frank, Shuddhabrata Sengupta, Danna Vajda, Tim Griffin, Anna Colin, and Shama Khanna.
