Sunday, December 12, 2004, noon to midnight – Aleksandra Mir: “Organized Movement” (2004)
Organized Movement is a video diary, made by Aleksandra Mir this summer during a residency program in Mexico city, “…that covers everything from Mir’s attendance at the dance classes and performances, to observations of ubiquitous teen culture, scenes in seedy- looking night clubs and techno festivals, and moments of spontaneous dancing with fellow resident-artists in offices, hotel lobbies or private apartments, backed with a soundtrack of infectious Mexican pop songs. Mir’s narrative voice-over adopts the model of old television documentaries for children: a patronizing tone full of sweeping judgments and lofty assessments which jars with the video’s casual, unsophisticated and often banal images. She exploits this discrepancy in moments such as where the narrator’s promise of an investigation of “local customs” cutting straight to a scene of trendy teenage boys playing high-tech games in a video arcade, who could just as well be in London or Tokyo as Mexico City.” Kirsty Bell for Camera Austria
