Established in 2008 by curator Kisito Assangni, »TIME is Love Screening« has travelled to major cities around the world exploring the theme of love in hard times and bringing every year a refreshing perspective on video art.
»TIME is Love Screening« aims to offer spectators a selection of works through which they can examine various artistic approaches and discover both the contrasts stemming from differences in cultural context as well as the common features due to the increasing globalisation of the art world. The program hopes to encourage the audience to reflect on the normative understanding of relationships in our modern society.
The selected artists deliver us without concession a range of complexities and passions generated by human relationships. Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying. Difficult, complex relations, which faint gradually for the benefit of personal, economic and coarse interests. Each of the presented movies scrutinizes with attention the vestiges of these human connections which it is today necessary to reactivate and to resuscitate.
Videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalisation, memory and spirituality. Love as a universal feeling extricates itself here from traditional clichés and from a timeless idealism.
