Launch of e-flux journal issue #131 with authors Leon Dische Becker, Cosmo Bjorkenheim, Sabu Kohso, and Matt Peterson
Authors Sabu Kohso and Matt Peterson will discuss their conversation “The Catastrophe Revealed: On Radiation and Revolution,” which traces deep, interconnected fault lines between the ongoing aftermaths of the Fukushima disaster and the Covid pandemic, as well as the imperial and also liberatory history of activist movements in Tokyo, New York, and all places where people rise up against a disintegrating world. Authors Leon Dische Becker and Cosmo Bjorkenheim will discuss their essay “A Cursed Franchise: Reliving Colonial Nightmares Through Endless Sci-fi Remakes,” which, among other things, recommends against Hollywood directors mounting a fourth remake of H. G. Wells’s The Island of Doctor Moreau, arguing that its curses and racist colonial critiques are better left in the past. This special evening launching e-flux journal’s current issue #131 will be introduced and moderated by the editors.

Mysteries: Recent Films by Sid Iandovka and Anya Tsyrlina
Get tickets
Over the past two decades Sid Iandovka and Anya Tsyrlina have developed a body of work that draws on the afterlife of experimental film, anachronic collages from Soviet archives, and the last vestiges of obscure underground music scenes.  Working with their own and other people’s footage and media artifacts, and fostering a peculiar symbiosis of various formats (archival film, analog and digital video, CGI), they create singular film objects in which hauntological detachment meets unbound proto-punk sensibility. The films that will be screened are Horizon (2019, 7 minutes), Phenomenon (2019, 15 minutes), Mysteries (2021, 7 minutes), Meteor (2021, 11 minutes), All Other Things Equal (2021, 19 minutes), Escape Goat (2020, 6 minutes), and will be followed by an in-person conversation with both artists. Read more on the event here.

CDJs Are Instruments: “What is an Ocean between Us?” ft. DONIS and MORENXXX
Get tickets
The CDJs Are Instruments series explores CDJs as tools for storytelling and live sets: While traditionally used for storytelling, CDJs are placed outside of the category of “live sets.” For each edition of the series, the performer(s) are invited to experiment with CDJs outside of a club setting, placing them adjacent to a sampler or any other electronic instrument used for a live performance. Drawing its title from chapter four of Left of Karl Marx: The Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones, this second edition “What is an Ocean between Us?” aims to both celebrate the multitudinous nature of the black diaspora experience and critique the cognitive dissonance that occurs within this identity, also understood as “the Great Camouflage,” an idea articulated by Suzanne Césaire. The event aims to celebrate the innate condition of being Caribbean, as being Caribbean is to practice errantry–it is to search for each other across oceans, time, and, in this case, through sound.

Screening: Mohammad Shawky Hassan, Shall I Compare You to a Summer’s Day?
Get tickets
Shall I Compare You to a Summer’s Day? is a contemporary queer musical taking Arab folktales as its formal reference and Egyptian pop music as its primary sonic material. It is based on the filmmaker’s personal love diary and told in the form of a One Thousand and One Nights tale, where stories playfully unfold through conversations between Shahrazad, a narrator who never comes into view, and ghosts of former lovers. The film premiered in the Forum section of Berlinale in 2022. Read more on the event here.
