on the margins: the city
Phase 1: Seestadt and Sandleiten
In the context of Basis.Kultur.Wien's SHIFT-program the Film Museum will take an in-depth look at amateur films both in the collection and in contemporary formats that look at the city of Vienna from its margins.
Artists Gustav Deutsch and Hanna Schimek are heading this project in which the Film Museum will collect, show and preserve private moving images. Film and video-works from amateur filmmaking contexts of the last decades will be put into relation with contemporary forms of this practice, such as clips from mobile phones or social media uploads. As the title suggests the project will focus on the city's periphery, wanting to both understand how these places have changed over the years as well as how people from these areas look at, think about, and represent the city. Last but not least the project is also meant to adress those people that can neither be described as producers of so-called high-brow culture nor are they its consumers.
