October 7 – 10, 2010

From the 7th to the 10th of October 2010, this year’s abc art berlin contemporary will deal with the complex theme of film and the related aspect of the performative. Recent years have been witness to an heightened awareness of the intimate interweaving between film and contemporary art. Film has exerted increased influence on the other arts and, alongside the classical disciplines of painting and sculpture, has become a central component of current artistic discourse. Furthermore, film has introduced dynamic new elements into our understanding of image, space and performativity.

In light of this development, the goal of abc this year is not simply to present leading, international productions, or works, that deal with the topic of film. Rather, the exhibition’s aim is to engage with the full complexity of questions posed by film, investigating and revealing the dynamic exchange that has developed between artistic mediums. The spectrum of works shown at abc will therefore range from traditional film projections, to videos, installations, collages, photography, light sculptures, and performances.

Marc Glöde, Berlin based curator, critic, and film historian, is the curator of the abc art berlin contemporary exhibition 2010. He has organized numerous international film festivals and programs, as well as exhibitions focusing on subjects such as Film and Architecture or Film and Art. Since 2008, Glöde has been the curator of the film program at Art Basel.

abc art berlin contemporary emerged three years ago as a free, new format between exhibition and gallery event, in response to shifts within the discourse of contemporary exhibition practice as well as out of a desire to experiment and innovate. The founders of the annual Gallery Weekend Berlin initiated the event. Each year, the exhibition takes place in a new location and addresses a specific curatorial issue, bringing together works by leading contemporary artists that respond to certain developments in contemporary art practice, reflecting tendencies in critical discourse as well as aspects of the art market.
