Kinship is a collaboration between Extra City Center for Contemporary Art and Muhka_media which aims at presenting a comprehensive overview and re-evaluation of experimental film history of the 60s and 70s and beyond. The program is designed in the form of a growing 'map', connecting the various centers of experimental and underground production world wide, accompanied by writers, researchers and public debate. The opening program Underground/Overseass (continued in December) sets out to trace the connection between New York circles such as Jack Smith and Andy Warhol to the Zanzibar group in Paris. Underground/Overseas, compiled by Marc Siegel (Film Scholar, Berlin), presents rare and never seen material next to classics and cornerstone work of both art and film history, this first weekend introducing newly recovered Jack Smith films, next to some of the most remarkable works from the Zanzibar scene.
Live guests of Underground/Overseas include Jerry Tartaglia (Filmmaker/Archivist, Fleetwood, Pennsylvania), Jackie Raynal (Filmmaker, Paris), Patrick Deval (Filmmaker, Paris), Stefanie Schulte Strathaus (Director of Friends of the German Cinemathèque, Berlin). The opening lecture for the KINSHIP program is delivered by Branden W. Joseph from Columbia University New York.
Kinship is conceived by Anselm Franke (Extra City) and Edwin Carels (Muhka_media). A collaboration with the Friends of the German Cinemathèque Berlin.
