Film and Talk

In a country where borders were omnipresent, the transboundary approach to artistic work was a key component of alternative culture. Christine Schlegel, a painter, and Gabi Kachold-Stötzer, an author and photographer, understood their Super 8 films as a continuation and expansion of their previous work with moving images. Both of them knew each other at the time, but had never worked together. They were united by their interest in the performative as a means of expression, and exploring the female body in an interplay of materials, colours and forms. Gabi Kachold-Stötzer made contributions in collaboration with other collective setups, taking up archaic and matriarchal rites to tell of sexual liberation and self-determination. Christine Schlegel's films combine the actionistic with the process of creating images. Using expressive body language, dancer Fine Kwiatkowski found this combination to be a sympathetic protagonist in her interactions between painting, movement and music.
