“Temperatures” – an online series by Bonner Kunstverein, Kunstverein München and Kunstverein Nürnberg.
“Temperatures” is a cooperative year-long program of events including talks, readings, concerts, and performances expanding the digital space within the existing infrastructures of the three institutions.
The fourth event, “Uncertainty”, on Tuesday, 25 May at 7 pm, takes the form of a lecture and conversation with author and film curator Madeleine Bernstorff.
Madeleine Bernstorff recounts on a moment of uncertainty: the sense of being “right in the middle and part of the pushing and shoving.” She presents a documentary film work about the deconstruction of the border facilities at Berlin’s railway station Friedrichstraße in the summer of 1990. The outcome of a wilful West-East collective’s collaboration, the film constitutes an intertwined, multi-perspective memory that, in its artistic and feminist conception, exposes the impact that still entails the clash of two societies, the dissolution of a social system.
Madeleine Bernstorff is an author and film curator. In her research-based and often collaborative projects, she explores the cinema of the avant-gardes and resistance movements. Bernstorff is co-founder of Kino Sputnik in Berlin-Wedding and the feminist cinema group Blickpilotin. She also works for the commission of the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen and teaches film history at universities and art academies in Germany and abroad.
The lecture is held in German; it is accessible for free without registration via the following link:
