IF ONE THING MATTERS - a film about Wolfgang Tillmans (2008)

IF ONE THING MATTERS - a film about Wolfgang Tillmans documentary, 72 min., USA / Germany Berlinale 2008, International Forum of New Cinema "...and all that thought-up stuff, will always just be thought-up stuff." a film by Heiko Kalmbach / featuring Wolfgang Tillmans, Irm Hermann, Conor Donlon / music: Frank S. Blumm / additional editing: Susan Korda / editing consultants: Susanne Burg, Frank Domhan / script consultant: Alexander Pfeuffer / sound design: Jana König / color grading: Marianne Thiess recent screenings: Bookers Den Haag, March 2016 Meta House Phnom Penh, May 2015 SCHAU-Fotofestival Dortmund, June 2014 Amherst College Massachusetts, May 2014 Fotokunst Bremen, October 2013 Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki, April 2013 festival selection: International Film Festival Berlin CPH:DOX Copenhagen Queer Lisboa International Film Festival Oslo Films on Art Torino Inside Out Toronto 'Wolfgang Tillmans became known during the nineties for his photos of parties and club life. His pictures had the effect of having been taken at random. Today he is one of the best-known photographers in the world. For four years, filmmaker Heiko Kalmbach followed him around with a video camera, observing his private as well as his professional life. It is Tillmans' voice speaking and not that of any expert. In its presumed casualness, the film stays right with its protagonist, whether Tillmans is lovingly wiping the dust off his houseplants or, equally precisely and meticulously, he's putting up one of his exhibitions with the patience of job. Of particular interest are glimpses into Tillmans's video debut for the pop band Pet Shop Boys, which make it clear that his inner readiness to fail is also what makes his success possible. Whether he's portraying dazzling stars or grey mice, Tillmans's artistic greatness is in the catching unexpected moment, for, as Tillmans says, "stuff that ́s thought-up will always just be thought-up stuff." By consolidating the banal and the glamorous at the same level, always catching the unexpected moment, Kalmbach successful emulates his subject.'

And they do. It's the same with New York. But there is much capacity for decay and madness left in this town. Regardless of what is done to clean it up." Edgar Oliver on the process of writing: " I try to never quite know what it is that I want to say until I'm at least halfway finished saying it, you know. If art is not a process of discovery then it's nothing."

Also from the Lower East Side Biography Project, excerpt's from an interview with Edgar's sister Helen https://vimeo.com/122447184 If you like this, please check out another Edgar Oliver video from the LES Bio Project, "Mother was a Hit-Run Driver", the haunted and depraved monologue that Edgar performed at the benefit for Goodie Magazine. https://vimeo.com/groups/lowereastsidebioproject/videos/46705419 The Edgar Oliver Biography was produced by The Lower East Side Biography Project and was edited and directed by Heiko Kalmbach. The Lower East Side Biography Project was created in 1999 by performance artist Penny Arcade and video producer Steve Zehentner as an ongoing biography series and oral history archive. The LES Bio Project’s biographies and archive will help to ensure that future generations have access to the mad souls of invention and rebellion that built the Lower East Side’s international reputation as an incubator for authenticity and iconoclasm in art, culture and politics. The project seeks to stem the tide of cultural amnesia by bridging the cultural gap between long time residents and newcomers to the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of New York’s Lower East Side. To this end, the LES Bio Project has a community-media training component where young filmmakers are trained in production and post-production technologies and then become shepherds of an individual oral history that they edit into a 28-minute biography. Since its inception, the LES Bio Project has trained over forty individuals, completed forty-six 28-minute biographies, videotaped dozens more interviews and live events. The project’s biographies cablecast in New York City every Monday at 11pm EST on Time Warner Channel 34, RCN 82, FIOS 33, and stream live on Manhattan Neighborhood Network Channel One mnn.org/live/1-community-channel LIKE us on Facebook and view the current cablecast schedule: facebook.com/LowerEastSideBiographyProject You can find more videos by the LES Bio Project here: vimeo.com/groups/lowereastsidebioproject CREDITS: Edgar Oliver Directed and Edited by Heiko Kalmbach www.spoonfilm.com Producer, Interviewer: Penny Arcade www.pennyarcade.tv

In the process, the work investigates the root of oral tradition and its impact on shared information in the virtual versus physical social space. In real-time visitors play and re- compose performance and documentary sequences of three vocal artists—Juliana Snapper (Los Angeles), Shelley Hirsch (New York), and Pamela Z (San Francisco)—by interacting with a 3D sonic sculpture on an iPad created by Michael Schmitz. Over 90 sung and spoken passages appear on floating screens in the gallery space. By improvising with the iPad interface and triggering text and vocal clips, visitors become not only intimately introduced to the vocalists, they turn into performers themselves.

WALDEN - LARS RUDOLPH (2011)

Video by Heiko Kalmbach, © WMT 2011 presented as a part of a 5-channel video installation at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, FESTIVAL ÜBER LEBENSKUNST, 17 to 21 August 2011 Perspectives for Sustainable Living 17 to 21 August 2011 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and in the city of Berlin. 101 hours of conferences, workshops, installations, performances, concerts, films, excursions, discussions and readings. For the ÜBER LEBENSKUNST Festival, artists, scientists and activists turned the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a place where visitors of all ages could try out the sustainable "art of living" around the clock. ›Walden‹ ist der Name eines kleinen Sees in Massachusetts. In dem gleichnamigen Essay protestierte der politische Essayist Henry David Thoreau Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts gegen den rauschhaft gewordenen industriellen Fortschritt. Der Autor beschrieb darin sein zwei Jahre dauerndes Experiment des einfachen Lebens zwischen selbst angelegtem ›Bohnenfeld‹, dem ›Nachbar Tier‹ und den ›Höheren Gesetzen‹. ob diese Gesetze oder ob die individuellen Überlebensstrategien zur verantwortungsvollen Gesellschaft führen, bleibt für den heutigen Leser Thoreaus ungeklärt. bis vor kurzem jedenfalls galten diejenigen, die der urbanen Zivilisation den rücken kehrten und eine Lebensweise als Selbstversorger oder in Landkommunen versuchten, als romantische Weltflüchter. Die ›Nacht der Performance: WALDEN‹ rückt das Paradox dieser Art zu leben in den Fokus, denn sie erscheint zugleich rückschrittlich und nachhaltig zukunftsorientiert. Künstler_innen erschaffen eine Nacht lang jene einsame Waldhütte im Haus der Kulturen der Welt, in der Thoreau seinen Essay schrieb.

'Was leicht daneben gehen könnte, wird hier zum theatralen Ereignis. "Cervelle & Gloria" ist auch ein Spiel mit visuellen Ebenen, dessen Reiz man sich kaum entziehen kann... Zusammen mit den Klängen von Frank Gerber und dem leichtfüssigen Text von Grazia Pergoletti wird "Cervelle und Gloria" zu einem stimmigen Gesmtkunstwerk, aber auch zu einer hübschen Satire auf die blühenede Neurowissenschaft.'
