e-flux presents Me, You, and Everyone We Know
Miguel Calderón, El placer después (Pleasure Afterwards) | Part Three | Interrelational Arrangements (Interdependency and Survival)
Wednesday, July 21–Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Miguel Calderón’s El placer después (Pleasure Afterwards) (2019), streaming from Wednesday, July 21 through Tuesday, August 3, 2021.

Many of Miguel Calderón’s pieces integrate personal experiences by exploring encounters and objects that have marked his memory. Just after the earthquake of September 19, 2017 that struck Mexico City, Calderón established a close relationship with the maintenance staff of the Cibeles Fountain. The video narrates a series of events told by a real character who also reenacts them around this specific landmark.

El placer después (Pleasure Afterwards) is presented here as one of five films in Part Three | Interrelational Arrangements (Interdependency and Survival), the third of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion.

Miguel Calderón (b. 1971) works in a variety of media, including video, film, photography, and painting. His pieces often combine a dark sense of humor that is reconfigured into works that explore deep social and personal territories, taking advantage of what is at hand to create low budget films and videos. His exhibitions include The Sharjah 7th Biennial, The Sao Paolo Biennial, Museo Tamayo, The Yokohama Triennial. He was recipient of The CIFO Grants & Commissions Program 2013, the MacArthur Fellowship for Film-Video-New Media 2000, and a Rockefeller Fellowship 1995.
