In reaction to COVID-19 and its effects of temporary isolation, physical and spatial distance, this curated program of the Vienna based Golden Pixel Cooperative presents film and video works by its members for the first time online.
The compilation highlights critical and socio-political encounters with identities, bodies, both human made and humanless spaces as well as their ecological shadows. The moving image works feature documentary, experimental and performative audiovisual comments on the disembodied realms of our time. Watching the program viewers will encounter humans and robots, touch sculptures and bodies, discover sand, pixels and fluids. By STREAMING SPECTRES via their screens they will travel at home and enter real and virtual places, taking time to remember, to forget, to imagine and to dream.
With works by Iris Blauensteiner, Mirjam Bromundt, Enar de Dios Rodríguez, Nathalie Koger, Luiza Margan, Olena Newkryta, Lydia Nsiah, Simona Obholzer, Christiana Perschon, Marlies Pöschl, Hanna Schimek, Viktoria Schmid, Miae Son, Katharina Swoboda & Kamen Stoyanov, Lisa Truttmann

The Golden Pixel Cooperative is an association for moving images, arts and media, active within both exhibition and cinema contexts. Our goal is to develop sustainable structures for the production, distribution, and presentation of moving image works by contemporary artists, as well as to facilitate exchange and support between artists. We support anti-racist, queer-feminist, documentary, and essayistic works and their authors. It is important for us to promote empowerment and solidarity between artists, and to initiate and foster a dialogue with a range of audiences. Collectively and associatively we develop a variety of formats such as screenings, exhibitions, artist talks, and publications.
