    COLORAMA: CLUBHOUSE WEEK

    CLUBHOUSE WEEK is the special summer edition of an ongoing collaboration project hosted by Aisha Franz and Colorama.
     
    15 artists mainly working in comics and illustration were invited to join an intensive workshop in Berlin to collaborate on a book together with other 15 contributing artists from afar.
     
    The participants in Berlin will be creating narrative work responding to poster illustrations which were handed in by the other participants before hand. The book including the work from all 30 artists will be (Riso-)printed, bound and released by the end of that week.

    BACKYARD SUMMER X SOUNDING IMAGES: C. SPENCER YEH

    For their second backyard event Sounding Images will screen C. Spencer Yeh’s video work 2002 (2015) with an introduction by the artist.

    2002
    … is a “concert film” that collects together footage of approximately forty bands videotaped by artist C. Spencer Yeh during the year 2002 across the continental USA, including Deerhoof, Animal Collective, Sightings, Sudden Infant, Cock ESP, Double Leopards, Caroliner Rainbow, Comets on Fire, and more. Acting as a survey, tribute, and foreshadowing of the contemporary American musical underground, 2002 captures not only the artists, but the audiences, spaces, and networks that remain incredibly formative and influential over a decade later.
     
    A handful of the segments were originally posted to Yeh’s personal website, before the coming of YouTube and other media-sharing outlets. The average duration of the edits were kept short due to the storage and bandwidth considerations of that time – a strategy carried over in revisiting the footage years later. In a style similar to Yeh’s Hair Police: 01-02, the accustomed musical documentary talking heads, voiceover meditations, and evocative b-roll were eschewed in favor of a more observational “vérité” approach. A loose narrative was already found in the sequencing of these short glimpses during the span of a year – audience members one moment are then found to be the artists on stage in the next. Some venues iconic in their moment are now long gone, while others were revived in recent times, activating a new history.

    The series SOUNDING IMAGES focuses on different approaches to documenting and visualizing musical performances, scenes and movements as well as close collaborations between filmmakers and composers, including soundtracks. The aim of it is to open up a wide range of perspectives on the interrelation of music, experimental filmmaking, and video art, including issues regarding race, class, sexuality and gender. Invited guests will discuss selected works and a short introduction to each screening will provide background information, sometimes a Q&A will follow.
     
    SOUNDING IMAGES is organized by Fiona McGovern. // Homepage
