Peggy Ahwesh, Keith Sanborn

Filmmakers’ screening 16mm film: The Deadman
Mon 1.12. - 20:00

Peggy Ahwesh has made mesmerizing, experimental films and videos for two decades. Her eclectic works explore gender and cultural identities through deeply textured visuals and fascinating narratives. Her work explores dark themes of ritual, sexual exploration, and death through medium-precise methods, from grainy Super-8 to decayed 16mm to the virtuality of digital video. She has taught at Brown University, the San Francisco Art Institute, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the School of Visual Arts, and currently teaches at Bard College.

Keith Sanborn is a media artist, theorist and translator based in New York. His work has been the subject of numerous one person shows and has been included in major survey exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial, and festivals such as OVNI (Barcelona), The Rotterdam International Film Festival, Hong Kong Videotage, and Ostranenie (Dessau). His theoretical work has appeared in a range of publications from journals such as Artforum and books, such as Kunst nach Ground Zero to exhibition catalogues published by MOMA (New York), Exit Art, and the San Francisco Cinematheque. He has translated into English the work of Guy Debord, René Viénet, Gil Wolman, Georges Bataille and Napoleon among others. He has also acted as an independent curator, working with such institutions as the Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Exit Art, Artists Space, the Pacific Film Archive, CinemaTexas and others. He teaches at Princeton University, where he is a Lecturer in the Program in Visual Arts.

Peggy Ahwesh’s and Keith Sanborn’s presentation and visit in the Czech Republic are sponsored by the Trust for Mutual Understanding as part of a series of presentations by American film artists in the Czech Republic, curated by Henry Hills.
