The programme Conversations at the margins – new video work from the Baltic Art Center will be shown as part of the programme of the LOOP festival in May.
The program includes three recent film and video works produced in collaboration with BAC and the Artist-in-Residency programme. Each work uses the conversation or interview as method for exploring identity and authorship in different ways. Taking historical sources and events as their starting point – Ingmar Bergman’s film Persona, memories of the Second World War, and the book Conversations in Exile by Brecht – the artists stage complex revisions of the relationship between official representations of history and culture, and personal experience.
