Untitled Sequence of Gaps

An essay film that approaches trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum, considering violence and its workings, class and queerness not through representation but from within.

Director Biography

Vika Kirchenbauer is an artist, writer and music producer based in Berlin. In her work she explores opacity in relation to representation of the ʻotheredʼ and discusses the role of emotions in contemporary art, labour and politics. She discusses the troublesome nature of ‘looking’ and ‘being looked at’ as well as its affective impacts on the individual in larger contexts including labour within post-fordism and the experience economy, modern drone warfare and its insistence on unilateral staring, the power relationships of psychiatry, performer/spectator relations, contemporary art display and queer representational politics as well as the everyday life experience of ambiguously gendered individuals.
