The central position of painting within the work of Jutta Koether, stresses how she does not think of the medium as a historical and isolated phenomenon, but as an open visual form, capable of telling stories. The selected films are all references that animate her pictorial and conceptual work.

Loretta Fahrenholz is an artist and filmmaker who lives between New York and Berlin. She investigates different social milieus and the various fictions and desires that are played out, with whatever degree of intention, among actors, narratives, and the given means of production. In this, Fahrenholz gives equal importance to the act of manipulating a set of circumstances and the condition of allowing herself to be manipulated by them. Her works are often inspired by literature or cinema, but this cultural referencing is never limited to citation. Rather, Fahrenholz chooses to restage the original works’ syntaxes and locate their narratives in contemporary settings, causing new meanings, imbued with strangeness, to emerge.
